Our custom signage creation process is built around our experience working with large institutional and municipal sign systems. With our powerful database and mapping approach we can complete full surveys and create large scale plans for the development of interior and exterior sign systems. We can also analyze the regulatory environment including code and regulatory approvals.
Evaluate Location for Access
Measure Sign Location
Assess Installation Needs
Submit Data to Project Management, Design and Engineering for Review
We manage the complete sign creation process, or we can support architects and designers to facilitate their design vision. Starting with conceptual design and visualization we can develop a complete design vocabulary as well as cohesive identity guidelines including type, color and materials. IDS also has the unparalleled ability to test design through color samples, mockups and legibility testing.
Review Survey Information
Check Local Authority Requirements
Analyze Existing Site Conditions
Produce Aesthetic Design for Submittal to Client
Produce Amendments, Resubmit to Project Manager for Client Approval
On Approval, Submit to Engineering
Throughout the design process we utilize both durability and a value engineering approach built around the programmatic needs of each project. This includes testing of mockups for materials and technology as well as documentation through shop drawings, engineered stamped drawings and guidelines.
Produce Necessary Cut Files for Production
Ensure Survey Information is Correctly Assimilated into Design
Produce All Installation Templates
Quality Check and Submission into Production
Our manufacturing approach is built around our experience in the creation of architectural and modular products for large wayfinding and identity programs. We focus on excellence in the details, from materials to lighting elements, to manufacturing to packaging and shipment. Our extensive planning and project management ensure the best results for small- and large-scale challenges.
All Manufacturing Tasks Conducted Within IDS Quality Control Environment
Multi-stepped Review and Control Process
Only Quality Sign Materials Used in All Applications
Fully Integrated Production Management Process
Inspect Final Products Prior to Shipment
Because of experience managing national and international projects we have the ability to arrange an installation team that can easily adapt to landmark or architectural venues. This includes experts in areas ranging from foundations to electrical work. We can also successfully manage the installation approval process for rollouts that require outside installation support.
Clear Communication with Customer Prior to Installation
Site Visit with Representative
Detailed Surveying Conducted On a Site-by-site Basis
All installations are coordinated by IDS and conducted by trained installers
Post-Installation Check, Photo Record and Completion Report Supplied On Each Completed Project
IDS coordinated installation at Golisano Children’s Hospital.
