Sobha Realty, Park lane, London

Benson Signs manufacture signage for Dubai-based Sobha Realty as they open their new London HQ on Park Lane, Mayfair.

Dubai-based Sobha Realty contacted us in late 2018 requesting a quotation for external signs at their proposed debut UK office in Mayfair, London. Their Architect was familiar with our work, so was confident we could handle the high end specification and strict deadlines. Once the quotation was accepted, drawings were prepared and a planning application was submitted, and subsequently approved.

The specification included: high level spacer mounted letters with LED canopy illumination above; projecting signs; chemically etched steel plates; bronze-coated panels to the window cills and large letters bonded to glass.

By early 2019 the signs were installed. A befitting addition to its prestigious Mayfair setting.

Soon after completing the external signs we were asked to supply the internal ground floor signs and displays. This involved re-interpreting the clients brief and drawings so the components were practical to manufacture. Not a problem, except we had just eleven days to redesign, manufacture and install in time for the grand opening.

A varied range of components were produced including: large halo illuminated feature letter and copper letters; suspended banners; acrylic graphic display panels mounted onto floor to ceiling steel rods; printed wallpapers with superimposed acrylic graphic panels; large aluminium feature wall with inset internally illuminated graphic details and glass partition wall manifestations. Installation was over three days, and was completed before the launch event.
