Construction Company ADA Sign Project

Building Directory for Construction Company Sign Project

Apartment Construction ADA Sign Project

When an Apartment building is remodeled, there’s always a need for ADA compliant signage. We recently worked alongside Signs PDQ, our sister company, on the  Waverly Apartments project with Mistick Construction .

Mistick Construction’s revamp of The Waverly Apartments required ADA compliant room signs, wayfinding signs, building directory signs and even an exterior Monument Sign. The goal with any sign project is always to make the client happy. For this project, and this client, that meant:

  • Meeting all ADA requirements, to be sure the building would be in compliance.
  • Creating clear signage that would easily guide all visitors to, and through, the building.
  • Meeting the client’s aesthetic needs. Matching colors and matching materials)
  • Providing the finished product on schedule.
  • Offering the finished signs at a price that worked with the budget.
Adjustable Building Directory Sign

The building directory sign for Waverly Apartments, needed to be informative, clear and attractive, but it also needed to be adjustable and resistant to smudges or damage. Additionally, the construction company wanted to plan ahead for changing room locations at a later time.  This meant they needed a sign that was adjustable, or could be “edited”.
Why would a building directory sign need to be adjustable, or edited? In the photo of the directory sign, S4 is clearly the Media Center. However, S4 may, or may not, always be the Media Center. If the building management someday chooses to move the Media Center, or change it’s name, they can simply order new parts for the affected rooms on the sign. If they didn’t have this type of sign, they would need an entirely new sign, whenever they needed to shift rooms.

Rather than purchasing an entirely new sign, if the Waverly changes their room layout, they will most likely only need to change pieces of the sign. The Waverly Apartments Directory Signs have been created to grow and change with the needs of the business.

Outsource your ADA Sign Project

Choosing to outsource the ADA Signs portion of your sign project can be a great idea for quite a number of reasons. We work with numerous sign shops to help them complete their entire sign project, on time and on budget. In fact, we know they deserve to profit from their sign project and we work diligently to make this happen. Let’s take a look and some specifics regarding the most common reasons to outsource your next ADA sign project:

Outsource your ADA Sign Project

Your sign shop doesn’t have the equipment or space to make hundreds of fully compliant ADA signs, but you have recently been asked to bid on a large sign project that includes ADA compliant signage.  

ADA Sign Project Teamwork

What does your sign company do when faced with a large ADA Sign order that you can’t complete alone? The choices are usually:

 #1 outsourcing ada sign projects

Bow out of the bidding process gracefully,

#2 outsource your ADA sign projects. Invest tens of thousands of dollars to buy the equipment, the training and even hire new team members for an ADA Sign job bid that you may, or may not, win.


#3 outsource the ADA portion of your next sign projectContact another company to work with you on the ADA compliant signage portion of your project. (AKA: Outsource your ADA Signs)

We can see concerns with all of the options above:

 #1 outsourcing ada sign projects

Bowing out of the bidding process because of the ADA Signs, or turning down the client, isn’t going to allow your business to grow. If you turn down projects often enough, you may not be invited to bid in the future. 

#2 outsource your ADA sign projects.

 Investing tens of thousands of dollars to buy ADA Sign making equipment that you don’t have room for, may not be ready to buy, aren’t sure how to use and don’t yet have the staff to run? That option isn’t feasible and is probably not good business decision, just yet.

#3 outsource the ADA portion of your next sign project

Contact another company to work with you on the ADA compliant signage portion of your project? This sounds “ok”, but how does that look to your client? Do you really want the client to know that your company couldn’t complete the ADA compliant sign portion of the job without outside or outsourced help? Are all of your profits going to be gone the second you reach out to another company?

Choosing to outsource your ADA sign project is absolutely not an indication that your company “couldn’t complete the job” Quite the opposite.

Outsourcing your ADA sign project is a clear indication that your sign shop is resourceful and committed to fully serving your client’s needs. Choosing to outsource the ADA portion of your sign project also shows that you are determined to get the entire sign project done correctly, on budget and on time for your client.

Outsourcing an ADA Sign Project is exactly when and why you need ADA Signs Wholesale. We want you to succeed. We want to be your partner on this bid and on future bids. We want you to make a profit so that you will choose us again in the future. If your client has an excellent experience with you, you will need us again!
