Signage partner of UEFA Women’s EURO 2022
As dedicated MK Dons fans, Signs Express Milton Keynes were delighted when UEFA chose Stadium MK as a venue for the Women’s European Football Championship.
UEFA’s plan was to wrap a 55-metre section at the front of the stadium along with wrapping the gates with 15 metre long drops. There were additional requirements for a number of ad hoc bespoke signage solutions including directional signage, temporary entrance signs, floor graphics and window graphics. These signs would require a very quick turn around and were to be in place for up to 4 weeks, the duration of the tournament.
UEFA’s signage company contacted Signs Express MK, safe in the knowledge that the team had the skills and expertise to help deliver the project due to Signs Express MK having managed and installed the main exterior signs, and many interior signs, at Stadium MK to brief, on time and within budget.
Working with the Spanish based signage company, the team helped them to understand the complexity of Stadium MK, as the building is made up of tiles which provides a unique challenge when trying to wrap the external elements of the building. This information was well received, as often on large projects, small details can be overlooked and can lead to unwelcome last minute challenges.
Signs Express Milton Keynes took responsibility for all preparation and site surveys including compliance with all health and safety guidelines while the main supplier took control of the internal signage.
All graphics, including building vinyls, floor vinyls and substrates were printed and delivered to site in good time ready for installation.
Janiv Patel, Managing Director of Signs Express, (Milton Keynes) said “While we faced a few challenges during this project, including the weather, a few early mornings and late nights, matched with the dedication and commitment of our team, meant the project was delivered professionally and on time. I am very proud of what the team achieved and the overall result”
Carles García from PROmotor Special Events said “It has been a pleasure working with Signs Express in Milton Keynes during the England Women's Euro 2022, in which they helped us out with the installation of supersites, big elements at height, mainly vinyl” – from the main signage contractor for UEFA who we supported with MK supply and installation.
