Aon engaged Programmed to update the illuminated sky signage on their head office in Sydney, NSW. They required four LED-illuminated sky signs – one for each side of the building’s façade, as well as additional ground level signage.
As part of this project, Programmed was further entrusted with ensuring all council and statutory requirements were met and complied with.
Leveraging on years of wide and varied corporate imaging experience and expertise, Programmed recommended various improvements to the sky sign’s structure and design for an eventual beacon-like quality with bright, unobstructed visibility.
Safety was of utmost importance in carrying out the work. All tools and equipment were secured to the gondola during installation. A “fall bag” – essentially a large pouch suspended beneath the working area – was used to catch any stray items that could have fallen during installation.
Programmed also made recommendations on the sky signs’ design. Our Corporate Imaging team suggested using internal steel support structures, diminishing the need for horizontal bars commonly seen on sky signage, which would result in a neater presentation.
Additionally, the use of oversized custom sheets to reduce joints in the faces was recommended. This recommendation not only enhanced the aesthetics; it minimised future maintenance because the signage was completely protected from rain, dirt and vermin.
Programmed ensured that all of the materials used were of the highest quality. Top-of-line LEDs were specified, as these provided each sky sign with optimal illumination.
Aon’s sky signs were safety installed by Programmed’s specialist team over a four week period. The initial research and design recommendations proved to be crucial in the success of this project.
