Over the years construction jobsites have been slathered with so many different types of signs to show who is building the project, who drew the plans and maybe even who the plumber or electrician is.
In the past few months, Teton Heritage Builders has completed a new signage program for our Montana jobsites, which show the true craftsmanship and quality of the homes that they sit in front of.
The key component to the sign is the masthead THB logo with the main office number attached. This gives any prospective client or subcontractor a way to call and find out more information about the project, or THB. Below that, there will always be our architect partner who, no pun intended, creates the blueprint for THB’s quality to be achieved. Presenting that particular aspect of the sign helps to promote their name, as well as ours. The next point of the sign is the job address, which lists the physical address of the property for subcontractor and suppliers to find, and in the end, becomes a gift for the owner of the home. The last part of the sign is reserved for our fantastic and talented project managers, which helps to represent them to the public, as the key figure for THB in bringing the home to fruition.
In addition, smaller signs were created for those high-end remodel and addition projects that will not last as long as the custom homes do. They show the masthead THB logo and the architect only. These are smaller and more portable, but still maintain the overall look and appearance of the larger signs.
I personally, along with a lot of help from the wife and kids, took on the not-so-little job of building the signs that I felt represented who we are, and what we do, to the highest level for the Montana market, which covers the whole state, but focuses on places from Georgetown Lake to Big Timber and from Bozeman to Big Sky. THB’s office in Jackson Hole, Wyoming had recently done the same thing, so I did what all good marketing folks do, which is take what they did and utilize the best aspects for our business here in Montana.
I used local suppliers for every piece of material, including laser-cut carbon steel plates made and finished with a dark exterior, while overlaying it over clear stainless steel plates. The wood materials and fasteners were all purchased new from the local lumber yard, and finished to look reclaimed. The final touch to the signs was to add solar-powered down lights to show off the sign at all times of the night and day. This is in keeping with the energy efficient solutions that our sister company, THB Energy Solutions, uses in their day to day business practices, as well as the energy efficient ways that we build our homes.
Where can you expect to see these signs, you ask? On any of our current building projects in Montana, is what I say. We are currently working on 3 projects in Big Sky. One in Spanish Peaks , one in Cascade and the other is in the Yellowstone Club (which does not allow outside signs other than those provided by the Y.C., so I has the sads). We also have a contract on a home in the Big EZ that already has a sign up, even though construction will not begin until the spring. The 2 remodel/ addition projects we are currently working on are an addition to a custom home that we built a few years back in Spanish Peaks and the Lone Peak Brewery building, that we also had previously built.
In our opinion, and I’m sure the opinion of all the previous home owners that we have built for in the past, these signs will represent the craftsmanship and quality associated with a THB built home. Consider it a badge of honor that we will wear every day knowing that THB builds magnificent homes.
