Local graphics firm, MacroArt has recently completed a huge signage contract for the masterdeveloper of Wintringham, Urban&Civic.
As a local business, MacroArt was keen to be involved and the project team have been working with their Business Development Manager, David Mansfield, to develop the extensive signage and hoarding around the site – and to make sure it keeps pace with the rapid progress of the building work.
The hoarding is an exciting feature which frames the new landscaping at the gateway to the development, and provides a vibrant backdrop to Wintringham Primary Academy. It also sets out the key features of the development including the 2,800 new homes, the new district centre offering shops and cafes, gym, nursery, convenience store, and office space for small businesses, alongside the stunning new Primary School, which opened last year.
David Mansfield said:
“Our team have pulled out all the stops to deliver over 250 metres of high-quality signage for the site already and are poised for more work as the project grows. Every member of our team stepped up to the challenge to ensure we delivered to the timescale and quality demanded. I am delighted with the result and proud of their achievement and look forward to continuing our work on this and other developments across the UK.”
MacroArt have also shown great attention to detail as part of the high quality design commitment for the development, with precise colour matching, anti-graffiti coatings and even colour coded screws.
Despite the size of the task, phases one and two of the perimeter were surveyed, designed and printed in under two weeks and installed over three days, providing the development with a fresh, professional new facia, which is already attracting the attention of local passing potential home buyers.
Rebecca Britton, Communications, Communities & Partnerships at Urban & Civic, said; “Wintringham is a key part of St Neots’ growth aspirations and the Eastern Gateway to the Town. From day one we have been working with and looking for trusted local partners who we can work with: not only to deliver great quality work on the development, but also to grow with us and be part of ensuring St Neots grows well: with opportunities to showcase the talent, hardwork and drive that is a key part of the town’s success. It’s been great working with an industry-leading local business like MacroArt in bringing the Wintringham story to life.”
