North Olmsted, Ohio Municipal and Wayfinding Signs

North Olmsted, Ohio

The city of North Olmsted, Ohio is a community with strong neighborhoods, with thriving retail, entertainment and a growing business community. When North Olmsted chose to develop a branded civic sign package to further the city’s growth it turned to Brilliant Electric Sign Co. (BESCO) to develop an integrated sign package that included several monument signs, an electronic message center sign, and multiple wayfinding pole signs. BESCO’s experience developed over decades of working on complex sign and wayfinding projects for municipalities insured that BESCO was the perfect match for the task at hand. Project work with multiple communities and transportation authorities that BESCO has completed in the region includes the cities of Cleveland, Brunswick, North Olmsted, and Shaker Heights as well as Burke Lakefront Airport and Greater Cleveland RTA.

Project Challenges

  • Project scope required conversion of design intent drawings into installed signs to be completed within four months;
  • Installation of signs in heavy traffic areas with specific traffic control regulations;
  • Installation of signs during inclement winter weather creating difficult site preparation conditions;
  • Masonry work during the winter requiring specific cold weather processes and special equipment;
  • Project completion required design intent drawings to installed signs within a critical timeline; and
  • Integration of complex signs to new and existing structures.

The project required close, daily coordination to maximize efficiencies with multiple assigned teams in order to deliver this diverse sign package from the initial design intent concept drawings through fabrication. The completed sign package was installed before spring planting and annual community events began.
