Year in Review: 2014Others
2014 was an exciting year for Metro Sign and Awning. Some of our very cool projects included Beverly and Salem Depots, Waterside Place, and The Crossings.
Beverly Depot and Salem Depot are two exciting and innovative projects we worked on for the MBTA, with our participation being arranged through Suffolk and Consigli Construction. We installed a new “T” logo there and adding the all-important way-finding signs.
Waterside Place was a Design/Build Project we did for The Drew Companies. As you may remember, it is a big part of the development of both luxury and affordable housing now moving forward in Boston and some of our surrounding suburbs. We were involved from the earliest stages, building both customer-facing and back-of-the-house interior signage both on-time and on-budget.
We offered a value-engineered signage product to match the original specifications the architect had proposed for the project’s conceptual design, and after a lot of hard work by a lot of dedicated professionals Waterside ended up with a gorgeous package of interior and exterior signage.
The Crossings turned out to be another high point for us in 2014. This is an on-going project with KeyPoint Partners, based in Newington, NH, and includes replacing a 35′ pylon with a new one in a different location. We fabricated the new one to combine traditional signage with a digital message board that advertises multiple tenants. We also renovated an existing, freestanding sign that is currently utilized for Regal as a full digital board displaying various tenants and media content. Some other work with did at The Crossings included an internally illuminated wall sign, some exterior way-finding signage, and a new monument/entry sign.
At Fox Run Mall, owned by Simon Properties, we rebranded various pylon signs, building-mounted signs, and interior/exterior way-finding signs.
We also worked on Milestone Associates’ center at Hadley Corner, fabricating and installing various colored awnings for the individual tenants moving into the building, and also creating a multi-tenant monument sign.
And let’s not forget the very neat entry canopies we did for Groom Construction, Gordon College, and Besito. We also found more and more interest in our “awning portfolio” work, including entry foyers, vestibules, and wind curtains,
All in all, a very good year. We hope next year will be even better! For right now, however: Happy Holidays and best wishes from everyone at Metro Sign and Awning for a great new year of your own!
