Brookestone is an office complex located in Kokomo, Indiana with 19,000+ square feet that is comprised of office suites and conference rooms to fit small business needs. This building was formerly the home of a local UAW so the building underwent an extensive interior remodel through Perkins Contracting. Their renovations included new signage to advertise for their tenants and lighting retro-fits to the interior and exterior fixtures; all of which were provided and installed by Huston Electric.
Huston’s Sign Division worked with Scott Perkins on the signage plans by offering design concepts and material choices to educate Scott on the different options. The signage is streamlined to offer a cohesive look for the office complex, while still allowing each of the tenants to use their own branding. We didn’t want to compromise the sophisticated look of the complex by allowing multi-colored logos on the pylon sign so the tenants were permitted to use their logos, but in white and Duranodic bronze only. The sign faces of the pylon are white polycarbonate substrates applied with 3M opaque Duranodic vinyl with the tenant logos weeded out to showcase their logos in white. Perkins Contracting provided the excavation, concrete, and stone for the pylon sign’s base while Huston provided and installed the steel supports and signage. Working with Perkins Contracting was seamless and together we achieved a well-designed, well-built sign that will positively represent Brookestone and their tenants for years to come.
Huston also provided and installed brushed aluminum letters reading “BROOKESTONE” “OFFICE SUITES” using brushed aluminum architectural letters. These letters are stud-mounted and flush-mounted to the main building frontage. The signage is illuminated with an LED flood light. Additionally, we provided and installed the “Edward Jones” brushed aluminum architectural letters.
Scott Perkins provided the following testimonial:
“One of those most important pieces to this multi-tenant facility was the signage to highlight the many businesses that call Brookestone home. Matt and Samantha were very patient in designing the perfect sign for Brookestone. They gave great advice and produced signs that have met every need. Samantha worked very hard to make sure I got exactly what I wanted and her input was invaluable. I am extremely proud of the finished product at Brookestone and very grateful to Huston Signs for adding the finishing touch!”
We greatly appreciate Scott Perkins for choosing Huston for his sign and lighting needs at Brookestone. We are proud to have been part of such a great project!
