Success Story

Burnside Industrial Park


We love doing work in our own hood. When we got the opportunity to completely overhaul the signage in Burnside Industrial Park - we were ecstatic.

The signage conversion was commissioned by Halifax Regional Municipality in March of 2014 and reached completion in August 2015. The project consisted of nine large gateway signs located at all major entrances to Burnside (Wright Ave., Akerley Blvd., and Burnside Dr.) as well as over 100 smaller street signs throughout the interior of the park.  All signage boasts the new Halifax logo and colors.

The large freestanding gateway signs were engineered and fabricated using galvanized steel uprights, anchors and aluminum cladding. Some of the existing uprights for other signs were re-used to hold new sign cabinets that slid inside or over the old posts.

The clean new design works well to aid wayfinding throughout Burnside and reinforces the Halifax brand as a modern city, ready to do business!
