The New Waterfoot Primary School
After 118 years based at the Thornfield Avenue site, Waterfoot Primary School has recently relocated to a new purpose built Eco friendly school at Wolfenden Green in Waterfoot.
Leading local construction company Warden Construction was awarded the contract to build the new state-of-the-art school and called upon Signs Express (Central Lancashire) for their expert advice to create a suitable signage scheme. Working closely with the School, the architect and Warden Construction internal and external signage was designed to tie-in with colour coded areas and create a strong new brand identity for the school. An important element of the project as a whole was the sustainability and environmental impact on the community. Signs Express (Central Lancashire) endeavoured to reduce the environmental impact where possible through the signage package. All the signs where made from aluminium composite. Aluminium composite panels can be fully recycled after the life of the sign has expired. The digital prints for the images and text on the signs were printed using latex ink. Latex inks produce odourless prints that are ideal for sensitive indoor areas like hospitals, schools and restaurants. They emit virtually no VOCs, no ozone and no hazardous air pollutants and meet the GREENGUARD Children & Schools standard for low emitting products. With all design and manufacture being carried out at their Preston workshop, all signage was installed by the highly experienced Signs Express (Central Lancashire) installation team in time for the staff and pupils to move in to the new building on the 4th January 2012 and begin a new exciting chapter for the historic Primary School. 'I have no hesitation in recommending Signs Express. The people I worked with were unfailingly polite, professional, and had a good sense of humour. Signs Express listened carefully to my requirements and dealt promptly with my queries. The finished result was exactly what we were looking for.' Simon W. Jones - Headteacher Waterfoot Primary School.
