Stockport Council, Bramall Hall & Park

About This Project

Bramall Hall in Stockport is a superb example of a Tudor Manor House with origins dating back to the Middle Ages.

 

It is described as ‘one of the most beautiful treasures of England and it of national importance’.  The hall’s restoration is now complete thanks to a £1.6million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.  The Hall, with its 60 acres of landscaped parkland is a wonderful place to visit and you can find out more on the Stockport Council website.

 

Landmark tendered successfully for the design, manufacture & installation of the new wayfinding signage based on experience and attention to customer satisfaction.

 

Key consideration in the project were the fact that Bramall Hall is a heritage site and that the employer was keen to use materials with minimum environmental impact.

 

A wayfinding study was carried out and the scheme developed using two core products.  Aluminium (a combination of solid and composite) was used for the main Entrance/Exit signs and lamp post flags, while recycled plastic was selected for the finger-post and ladder signs.  The design incorporated elements from the architecture and history of the Hall to complement this amazing property.

 

The contract was completed in 3 months during 2016 and the customer’s comment at the point of installation: ‘The guys are doing a great job, very pleased with everything so far.’
