AFFINITY SUTTON

Affinity Sutton is a national housing association providing homes for affordable rent, shared ownership and outright sale throughout the UK. 
Douglas Signs were recently appointed to assist the Association with a complete review of its external signage scheme as part of a major rebranding exercise across its residential housing estates nationwide. We were commissioned to complete a comprehensive signage audit nationally, from Plymouth to South Shields, developing sign schedules for each estate detailing all the signs currently in situ. Once complete, we then developed sign specifications most suited to the environment in which the signs were to be installed. Once agreed with our client, it was decided a pilot scheme would be undertaken throughout one of Affinity Sutton's estates in the South of England, and we proceeded to manufacture and install the signs. This was then extended to other regions, with over a thousand new signs installed to date. We are delighted to continue to work closely with our client.

BARKING RIVERSIDE

Barking Riverside is an ongoing project to regenerate a whole area of one of the previously most run down stretches of the River Thames. Part of this project was the building of a new community centre combining a new school and church for the local community.

In conjunction with the main contractor, Neilcott Construction, Douglas Signs were commissioned to produce all of the internal and external signage, including a large LED illuminated crucifix. 

Internally we produced signage family, which, as well as looking good, offers flexibility and would therefore serve the school for many intakes and years to come. The scheme also comprised of large vinyl, colour coded wall decorations that fit well with the architecture of the new buildings.

KIEHL'S

Once a full-service pharmacy, Kiehl's today is dedicated to giving customers quality skin care and hair care products based on the most advanced science and utilising unique, natural ingredients, throughout its 86 stores in the UK. 

As Kiehl’s nominated sign supplier, Douglas Signs has been manufacturing and installing external signage with internal illumination to stores across the UK and Ireland. We have recently completed projects at Westfield White City, Bluewater, Selfridges in Manchester, Fenwicks in Newcastle, Cambridge and Dundrum in Dublin.

BEXHILL ON SEA – NEXT WAVE B

As part of Rother Council’s makeover of the coastal walk around the famous De La Warr Pavillion, Douglas Signs were one of the companies commissioned to supply wayfinding monoliths and Groyne markers along the route.

A combination of engraved and infilled aluminium panels with vitreous enamel maps went together to make these fine looking signs. Instructed by Neilcott Construction we also provided the signage for the adjoining Rowing Club and were one of the manufacturers involved in putting together the centre piece sundial.

BIZSPACE

As part of a nationwide re-branding of all Bizspace sites, Douglas Signs had the privilege to produce and supply signage, Vinyl and directory boards for a selection of Bizspace sites.
