Skidmore College, located in Saratoga Springs, NY, was looking to implement an interior signage project for their Media Services Department and Campus Library, and an exterior project for their Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater. The premise for the interior program was to standardize signage throughout the campus.
Our Solution & Services
We worked closely with the college’s Facilities Services Project Managers to develop the implementation schedule. To date, more than 300 signs have been completed. The signs consist of a convex aluminum frame, with lens covers and printed mylar inserts, suitable for wall mounting.
The exterior sign consisted of a set of 12” high individual aluminum letters, back lit with LED illumination and a clear acrylic backer, mounted on a raceway. Each letter was mounted vertically to the raceway below with 2” long connectors. The sign was fabricated in 4 sections, one section for each word, for ease of transportation and installation. Access panels were conveniently located in the raceway to simplify the electrical phase of the project.
Skidmore College now has a unified interior signage program with a high quality finish to complement the aesthetics of the campus. We’ve also established a long-term program to update their signage as staff and faculty occupy offices.
