Widd Signs leaves its mark on luxury £35m York development

Widd Signs has completed a five-figure project at the prestigious Hudson Quarter, a newly created £35 million mixed-use development opposite York Railway Station.

The project saw the digital and traditional signage specialist design, manufacture and install more than three hundred signs at the sustainably built development, which comprises of three blocks of luxury apartments and penthouses, alongside a further building containing Grade A office space.

Ranging in size and style, the high-spec signage includes both external and internal wayfinding, as well as room numbering throughout each of the blocks.

The company, which has bases in both Leeds and St Helens, was commissioned by joinery firm Wroot Contracts, who have supported developer Caddick Construction on the scheme.

Commenting on the project, Tony Bennett, project manager at Widd Signs, said:

“We’re proud to have played our part in helping to put the finishing touches on this hugely impressive scheme in the heart of York.

“As befits such a prestigious development, the signage has been crafted to a very high-spec, with our 70-strong team of experts providing a turnkey solution, designing, manufacturing and installing everything themselves.”

Jonathan Wroot, director at Wroot Contracts, said:

“We’re delighted to have partnered with Widd Signs to complete this luxury development.

“Their attention to detail and commitment to quality craftsmanship is evident in every sign, with their team making it easy to execute what on paper was a challenging brief.”
