Renewable energy is something we’re all thinking about these days. How can we save our Earth’s precious resources in a responsible way, while still living comfortably? Silicon Ranch is a company based in Nashville, TN that provides solar energy to communities nationwide. To tell this company’s unique history and mission, we worked with Gresham Smith to fabricate wall displays and other custom projects for their new office space.
One of the most prominent and important parts of this project was the History Wall. This wall was designed to tell the story of when and why the company originated, as well as show one of the company’s original solar panels.
To create the custom display, we fabricated box frames from MDF to hold four large acrylic panels. Three of the panels were 48” x 96” and one was “32” x 96”. The panels were designed to hang on a framing system that floats away from the wall without visible hardware.
To create the graphics, we painted three of the acrylic panels dark gray and one lighter gray, and then direct printed the lettering and artwork in white ink onto the panels using our flatbed printer. These panels were designed to be easily interchangeable.
The solar panel was then installed into the inset area within the panels. Talk about a conversation starter!
Wall Mural with Dimensional Letters
We digitally printed, laminated and installed a large vinyl wall mural which shows a photo of Silicon Ranch’s solar panels in Greeley, Colorado. We installed ¼” thick custom painted acrylic letters near the top of the wall mural which explains the company’s mission.
Components for the Map Wall
We also fabricated thin strips of colorful vinyl, dark gray acrylic lettering and round acrylic magnets for the wall map pictured below. The 0.75” diameter, ¼” thick acrylic magnets were painted to match the vinyl strips, in green and gold. We fabricated 150 of these interchangeable magnets. (We didn’t create the very cool map, although we have the capability in our shop to do that type of work.)
ADA signage was also fabricated and installed throughout the office. This signage was created using painted acrylic, tactile text and braille. Some of the signs also included a see through panel for Silicon Ranch employees to insert customized room information.
As you can see, the wall displays helped create a branded environment that tells the history and mission of Silicon Ranch. Does your company’s workspace clearly identify your brand and/or tell your story? From custom signage, window graphics, wall murals, elevator wraps, architectural signage and more, there are so many ways you can transform your company’s workspace!
