3WM SIGNS: PREMIUM SIGNAGE
Our team has worked with Macdonald Joinery & Construction for a number of years, and we enjoy a great relationship with Macdonald’s retail and commercial specialists, including senior designers and site teams.
Macdonald enjoys an impressive portfolio of bespoke, high-end fit-out work. Our teams share a common approach, delivering design, project management, structural, internal and decorative solutions that make for an impressive finish. We’re proud to work alongside Macdonald, supplying unique lighting and signage to many of their projects.
“By involving 3WM in projects from the concept and design stage we know we’re guaranteed a unique result. We trust the team to manufacture to a high standard, and 3WM’s techniques create an individual finish every time.”
Dave MacDonald, Owner, Macdonald Joinery & Construction
Getting the project started
This was a very different project for 3WM. Macdonald Joinery was instructed by McArthurGlen, owners of Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, to undertake a complete refresh of an original walkway section of the large Cheshire Oaks site.
The project encompassed paving replacement, installation of new canopy lighting features and refreshed decoration to Cheshire Oaks’ oldest area. We supported Macdonald right from the start, developing and understanding the brief which was centred around enhancing the customer experience for visitors to Cheshire Oaks.
Consultancy and design by 3WM, alongside Macdonald, created a bold and unique canopy lighting solution which was manufactured and installed entirely by our Greater Manchester team.
Our innovative solutions
We worked to a design brief and budget on this project, carefully managing both to ensure that the client received a beautiful, long-lasting product that would breathe life into tired walkways. This project required not only our signage design and manufacture expertise but also lighting know-how, creating a functional product which demanded a strong understanding of both disciplines.
Our team manufactured an array of lighting rings, each painted bronze and featuring inward-facing lights for a subtle and classic appearance. It was crucial to deliver a stylish design and finish, but also to ensure lighting was sufficient to brightly illuminate walkways for busy customers. Our innovative team’s illuminated signage is designed and manufactured to our own specification for a stunning effect.
Onsite lighting installation was managed by 3WM and Macdonald, completing around 3 weeks’ work which was then fully tested and quality assured for an exceptional result that will brighten Cheshire Oaks for years.
What happened next!
Aftercare on the Cheshire Oaks project was, as always, important to 3WM. We pride ourselves on our commitment to quality, which here included monitoring of the installation following its opening to the public and support for Macdonald where any adjustments were necessary.
Our team continues to work closely with Macdonald Joinery & Construction on projects for numerous clients. This close relationship brings 3WM into projects from the outset, enabling us to design, manufacture and professionally install bold, on-brand and premium-quality signage.
Macdonald’s understanding of our skill set made 3WM the perfect partner for Cheshire Oaks’ lighting solution.
