This Month's Featured Project


Schanks Sports Grill, MacLeod Trail Calgary




  • In early 2010 we had the opportunity to work with the management at Schanks Sports Grill to come up with a unique custom design for their existing pylon signage at their MacLeod Trail location in Calgary which integrated a full colour electronic message centre and masthead while reusing the existing concrete footings and steel structure.

    We worked on a series of initial concepts which were tweaked and re-worked to meet the specific criteria set forth by Schanks while keeping in mind the municipal bylaws. After a series of consultations with the client we finalized the pylon concept and began the process of obtaining the appropriate approvals and city permits.

    Upon approval of the city of Calgary permits we proceeded with the production of the new pylon masthead and message centre. While in production we coordinated the various aspects relating to the refit of the existing structure and installation of the new signage.

    The completed message centre and masthead were installed in August of 2010. Upon installation of the new signage the communication hardware was initialized and the wireless communcation configured to integrate seamlessly into the existing computer network. After a software training session was completed Schanks Management was able to create and upload their own custom full colour messages to promote their various upcoming events and functions.
