    Signbox has just completed an intricate and technically demanding project, to manufacture and install a substantial corporate logo to the top of Northern Trust’s Canary Wharf premises in the UK.The project commenced in January this year and involved skylifting structural steelwork to a precise location at roof level, providing a support for the two metre high lettering and five metre diameter logo.

    However a combination of health and safety restrictions and the need to minimise disruption to personnel working in Canary Wharf, meant that installation could only take place at weekends.

    Coinciding with the severe weather conditions experienced early this year and exacerbated by the 62m height that the Signbox installation team were working at, the Northern Trust’s logo is now visible from afar, especially at dusk with illumination provided by low energy, high performance LEDs.
