We’ve won two new significant contracts to design, manufacture and install eye-catching branding and signage at the £1bn flagship Paddington Village development in Liverpool.

The first contract will see our talented teams in both Leeds and St Helens create and install an array of exterior and internal signage at the site’s 14-storey, 1,256-space car park, with work already well underway to install some of the larger, high-level external illuminated branded signs. Internal traffic management and safety signage will be installed over the course of May.

The second contract will see us develop and install external and internal signage at The Spine – a newly built, 14-storey, 160,000 square foot building.

As part of this contract, we’ll create and install four large sets of rimless face illuminated letters, each measuring almost six metres in length and mounted to the louvre system on top of the city’s tallest office space right in the heart of the Knowledge Quarter. Once complete, the signage will be seen in Liverpool’s skyline from miles around.

Peter Harris, national sales manager for Widd Signs, said:

“Paddington Village is transforming the Knowledge Quarter and, as a locally-based company, we’re incredibly proud to be playing our part to support such an exciting and important development.

“It’s a large-scale project and we’re looking forward to showcasing the full breadth of our in-house capabilities, from designing and manufacturing the signage locally through to coordinating and managing its installation, with a number of high-level fittings planned.”

At 30 acres, Paddington Village, which was once the site of a now relocated secondary school, is being developed by Liverpool City Council in three phases – Paddington Central, Paddington South and Paddington North – with work on Paddington Central well underway. Once completed, Paddington will be a 30-acre urban village, with a focus on life sciences, technology, education and health, capable of creating upwards of 10,000 new jobs.

Established in 1888, Widd Signs provides signage consultancy, design, and production to a range of high-profile businesses operating in the retail, construction and sports and leisure sectors. Its clients include retail giants Marks & Spencer, Primark and Schuh, and culture and leisure hubs such as the National Science and Media Museum and Burnley F.C.
