Hi-Vis Group completes complex signage project at iconic commercial building for Bloc Constructions

The major redevelopment of The Store site continued in 2021 with the construction of a new 10 storey commercial building and car park by Canberra based building design company, BLOC at 6 Stewart Avenue, adjacent to the Newcastle Interchange.

BLOC chose local company, Hi-Vis Group, to deliver a complex signage manufacture and installation project for levels 1-7 of the new 11 storey building ensuring the quality and integrity of the build was to the exact standards of the new tenants, NSW Government departments – Transport for NSW and Planning Industry & Environment.

Hi-Vis Group were able to supply all custom signage components on each of the 6 floors including:

  • acrylic, vinyl & metal lettering for doors & rooms
  • metal suspended zone & location indicators
  • decorative window & privacy films
  • directory pylons on each level
  • braille indicator & door signs
  • sliding ‘In Use’ signs for dishwashers & equipment
  • hundreds of decals for kitchens & lockers
  • regulatory signage on each floor
  • car space indicators

BLOC Director, Maurizio Rosin said “The team at Hi-Vis delivered a detailed manufacture and installation signage package for the Store Commercial building. From procurement, through to the shop drawing phase, into manufacture and installation, the experience was seamless and completed in a timely manner.”

“The quality of installation is of a high level and the after sales service has been exemplary. I will have no hesitation in dealing with the Hi-Vis team for future projects,” he said.

Over the 9-month project the Hi-Vis Group ensured all BLOC’s signage requirements could be handled with the one company. The proximity of the Carrington facility also proved to be advantageous for BLOC to visit on site to view signage in production and to address any variations with an easily accessible installation crew to install all required items quickly and efficiently.

Simon Watson, Chief Operations Officer commented on the project, “We’re very proud of the work we completed on The Store building. Our capability is clearly demonstrated in being able to provide BLOC with all the types of signage required in a new building from car spaces, directional & wayfinding signage, building & entry signage, braille & acrylic lettering to walls and decorative window graphics & privacy films.”

“The Hi-Vis Group worked with the architects to bring their ideas to life, and since they were able to source everything from us, it made things easier for project teams,” said Simon.
