MMU - The Image Group graduate with flying colours

“Image group were very professional and extremely helpful in all of the works carried out.”

Areas around the MMU campus get a refresh.

Manchester Metropolitan University are undertaking a rejuvenation project in and around their campus in the coming years. Phase one of the project involves improvements to some of the smoking and bus shelters as well as adding signage to their Grade II listed Righton Building.

Several suppliers, including The Image Group, were contacted and invited to quote for the vital first step on this hugely ambitious project. After a site visit and some concepts and headline costings being submitted, The Image Group were given the good news that they were successful in their bid.

The first step was for a detailed site survey to be undertaken to highlight any issues to be overcome before the final install. The first challenge was to find a way to fix signage over the top windows without fixing into the surrounding brickwork. In order to carry the weight of the signs a special aluminium angle was fabricated in-house that would fix into the window frame and provide a stable anchor point for the tray sign.

With the site survey complete and the specification nailed down the design team were tasked with the delicate challenge of creating a fascia sign that would compliment the look and the heritage of the building. Beautiful black gloss tray signs with raised logo and lettering detail were decided upon with some frosted window sections providing privacy to some of the street facing windows.

The second challenge was to improve the look of some of the bike and smoking shelters in and around the campus. The graphic panels were designed to be strong and resistant with durable dibond panels and anti-graffiti laminates were used throughout. The refreshing designs gave the shelters a much needed facelift with the added benefit of becoming clear way-finding points for students and faculty alike.

For Image Group, account manager Dave Cousins said:

“We have a very strong relationship with MMU and we’ve worked together on many projects over the years. Our knowledge and experience working around campus gave us a distinct advantage in our initial bid for the work.

A tight deadline meant we had to respond quickly to the enquiry and our assistance with designing all the artwork saved valuable time. Working with the University staff was an absolute pleasure and they helped us tremendously in getting the work completed on time.

We are really happy with the final result, the areas we have transformed look truly amazing and I look forward to being involved in the next phase of the project.”

For MMU, Martin Ryan had this to say:

“Image group recently carried out several improvements around the MMU campus, this was a part of of our new initiative "Army of Ants”.

The Army of Ants project was set up to deliver an improved campus experience for all students, staff & visitors to the site.

Image group were very professional and extremely helpful in all of the works carried out around campus and I look forward to working with them again on future projects.”
