In 2015, Property Alliance Group, one of Manchesterís leading property developers, purchased Trident Business Park for £5.2m. Situated in a prime location next to Manchester Airport, the 86,084 sq ft development was in much need of reinvigoration. Planned works included: a remodelled striking glass entrance, leisure facilities and unrivalled on site amenities.

The business relationship between Manchester Sign Co. and Alliance stretches back 25 years, so naturally we were asked to liaise with the project designer and come up creative, high specification signs to match the brief given to us.

The end result is a wayfinding and identity scheme using signage with an emphasis on clarity and contemporary style, this includes a sign comprised of individual letters appearing to float above the already impressive glass and steel reception. As a finishing touch to the transformed business park, and to make an initial statement to any visitors, a sign with 1.2m high built up acrylic letters, internally illuminated with LEDs, stands on a concrete and marble plinth at the entrance.
