[T]he newly-built headquarters of Penrith company Ast Signs has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 2016 Northern Regional LABC (Local Authority Building Control) Building Excellence Awards for Best Large Commercial Building.
The Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Building Excellence Awards celebrate all that’s good in the construction industry. Instead of focusing on aesthetics, the awards look at other vital elements in the creation of great buildings: outstanding craftsmanship, technical innovation, sustainability and high performance.
A leading UK specialist in transport fleet branding and commercial signage, Ast Signs is a high-growth digital-media and advanced manufacturing business, with a portfolio of clients including Eddie Stobart, Royal Mail, Tesco and Muller Wiseman. It also designs and produces bespoke wall wraps and art for elite corporate settings throughout the UK.
‘The Box’ – its unique headquarters and manufacturing hub was purpose built in 2015 to consolidate all its operations into one perfect space and drive improved communication, efficiency and growth. The result has been an ultra-modern and striking building with an innovative use of space that has meant that the company has been able to bring all staff and processes onto one site.
Adam Wellings, Commercial Director at Ast Signs said: “We’re thrilled to have been nominated for this award. We have been intimately involved at every stage of the development of The Box and are proud to have created an ideal space for our needs.”
The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony on the 8th of July at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead.
