A job to repair signage & Hunter Arcelor flat panels
Just as any business knows, rebranding and keeping your image current is crucial to commercial success. Adidas’ UK headquarters in Hazel Grove, Stockport is all too familiar with this. Having originally branding itself Adidas Group, after much deliberation, a decision was made to drop the Group from their company name.
Delighted to be chosen by Adidas to help renovate their signage
We delightfully accepted the project when Adidas invited Buckingham Coatings to implement their sign rebranding job.
Initially our remit was to fill and recoat screw holes that had been left in the structure from the removal of the word Group from their signage.
These holes required filling, reshaping, priming and recoating. However, it was found that water run-off and staining had occurred to the Arcelor cladding panels. Therefore, following our advice, it was agreed that we would remove the remaining lettering of the word Adidas and repair and recoat the cladding panels and brackets before fixing the lettering back to the building.
Working at height to repair & recoat cladding panels
To obtain access to repair and recoat the panels we required a scissor lift. All of our operatives have International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) certification and training which enables us to carry out works like this more efficiently. This made it a straight-forward exercise for our operatives to do a bespoke repair quickly with the aid of a scissor lift, which proved vital equipment for gaining the access needed to the side of the building.
The pictures below show how the cladding panels were transformed once the Adidas signage had been removed and the screw holes had been repaired.
A cost-effective alternative to replacing Arcelor flat panel cladding
We were able to create an invisible repair on an already beautiful building, and by spraying the Arcelor cladding panels rather than replacing them, we helped Adidas to make a considerable cost and time saving.
All parties were happy with the results and we look forward to working with Adidas again future.
