Huston’s Sign Division had the privilege to work with the City of Kokomo on many of the signs at the Kokomo Municipal Stadium. The City of Kokomo approached Huston with architectural drawings and designs and Huston offered competitive pricing and ultimately delivered in manufacturing and installing the various sign packages. We worked closely with Ross Pierce, the City’s System Project Designer. The sign projects came in phases as the stadium was being built and from start to finish we were involved for a year and a half with approximately 70 signs throughout the stadium. We are grateful to have been a part of this beautiful stadium and all that it has to offer.
“Huston worked with us on the very specific designs that we wanted for the Stadium and exceeded our expectations on craftsmanship and with their technicians’ workmanship. From start to finish, everyone with Huston were extremely easy to work with and were eager to satisfy the City’s needs.”
– Ross Pierce, System Project Designer
Huston’s signs include the architectural letters identifying “Kokomo Municipal Stadium” and Section Seating signs, Suite, Restroom, and other Wayfinding signage.
The architectural letters reading “Kokomo Municipal Stadium” are 1” thick cast aluminum letters that are stud-mounted into the brick that surrounds the stadium.
Inside the stadium there are multi-layer painted aluminum signs that identify section seating, suite numbers, and restrooms. We ended up producing about 30 signs directing fans where their seats or other amenities are located, with another 30 signs labeling each room in the stadium. These signs hang from the ceiling or are mounted perpendicularly on steel beams.
Additionally, there are many multi-layer acrylic signs that are ADA compliant identifying handicap seating, restrooms, tickets, offices, storage rooms, and “No-Smoking”. To better define certain zones, we needed some extra signage to show that some space is for ADA compliant seating. We also wanted to re-emphasize that Kokomo Municipal Stadium is a smoke-free environment with signs throughout.
“This was an exciting project to work be a part of and, by far, one of my favorites! The signage plans for Kokomo Municipal Stadium began in the fall of 2014 and by the time the stadium was fully completed we were able to install the last of the signs in the spring of 2016. I was fully invested over the course of the project and take pride in the work that our Huston team provided. Any time my family and I go to a Jackrabbits game I can’t help but feel a sense of appreciation for getting to a play small part in Kokomo’s beautiful Municipal Stadium.” –Samantha Milburn, Project Manager for Huston’s Sign Division
