Introducing BSC Custom Architectural and Lighting

14th of August 2015 |   BSC Signs Team

BSC Signs has added a new division, offering customers an expanded range of services. In this post we introduce you to BSC Custom Architectural and Lighting. 

BSC SIGNS INTRODUCES A NEW DIVISION

Did you know that BSC Signs has a new division? We are very proud to introduce BSC Custom Architectural and Lighting. This new venture will focus on creating custom lighting and architectural elements.

With a move into its new office in July, and the launch of its website at the beginning of August, BSC Custom is now up and running at full capacity.

The division began operations in April with the arrival of Doug Brown, the manager of BSC Custom Architectural and Lighting. Doug has more than 15 years of sign and lighting experience, and has specialized in the creation of architectural elements. Under his direction, the BSC Custom team is quickly establishing itself as a creative force in Metro Denver.

NEW DIVISION  —  SAME LOCATION

BSC Custom is co-located with BSC Signs in Broomfield, Colorado. At 21,500 square feet, this large production facility with its talented team can fabricate anything the BSC Custom designers dream up! Within the facility there are four drive up doors, two docks, two paint booths, an automated channel letter machine, MultiCam CNC routers, specialty welding equipment, a full complement of metalworking gear, and much more!

The company moved into this new location in Broomfield in the spring of 2014, after outgrowing the building it had occupied since the company was founded in 1999.

BSC Fabrication Area 2015

Walk out on the shop floor and you'll see architectural and lighting projects being fabricated, and completed projects ready for delivery. It's an exciting time to be working at BSC, as we expand our capabilities into this new market.

SERVICES AT BSC CUSTOM

While BSC Signs continues to design, fabricate, and install all kinds of commercial signage, BSC Custom will have a narrower focus, creating architectural elements and lighting for the commercial market. Services include custom fabrication of specialty lighting fixtures, architectural elements, and signage.

And what exactly are "architectural elements"?  These are the unique parts and components that architects use to give a building its style. At BSC Custom, it refers to custom-built lighting fixtures, specialty signage, and unique objects such as metal sculptures and monuments. The common thread is the creative use of lighting in many of these projects.

HOW ARE ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS USED?

Designers use architectural elements in many different ways, depending on the building or development. Their aim is to create visually beautiful designs that are unique, memorable, and have that WOW! factor. 

 Here's a description from the BSC Custom website:

Your projects are unique and architecturally significant, with many features cohesively intertwined to create a unique experience in the built environment. Inspired buildings and developments may have many, or just one custom element that reflects the character of the overall scheme… an illuminated feature as part of a streetscaping plan, an iconic obelisk for a business park or a large-scale chandelier for a grand hotel.

Here's a short video that shows the range of architectural and lighting projects that BSC Custom is able to produce.

 

SERVING THE DESIGN COMMUNITY

Imagine for a moment that you're an Architect, working on a large commercial development in Denver. You have a great idea for a distinctive architectural element for the entrance area, but who do you ask to build it? That's where BSC Custom excels, working with designers to create elements that bring a distinctive flair to projects. BSC Custom works collaboratively with Architects, Landscape Architects, Interior Designers, and Developers.

BSC Custom Blog 02

BSC Custom assists these design professionals with everything from consulting on designs to custom fabrication and installation. And being under the same roof as BSC Signs adds a powerful and convenient resource — access to the experience and technical know-how of Denver's premier full service sign company.

FROM CONCEPT TO COMPLETION

The team at BSC Custom understands the creative process, and works collaboratively with design professionals to bring their ideas to life.

Clients may have detailed CAD drawings, a design sketch, or they may want to discuss a concept they've been thinking about. Using powerful visualization tools,  BSC Custom's designers can turn a rough idea into a 3D model. And from there the discussion can turn to the practicalities of materials, permitting, and budget.

Sometimes a project calls for the careful selection of commercial light fixtures, while another project may have a budget that allows for custom elements to be designed and built.  Either way, BSC Custom is UL 1598 certified to build and install commercial lighting.

Here are some design drawings and a photo of a completed light fixture that was recently hanging in our shop, ready for delivery. It's just one of many custom light fixtures BSC Custom has created for the Latinicity market in Chicago, the latest project by Richard Sandoval Restaurants. If you're a foodie, you probably are very familiar with Richard Sandoval. He operates a stellar collection of restaurants that span the globe, from New York to Dubai and Tokyo. And he recently moved to Denver!

This is a project that we'll be describing in greater detail in future blog posts.

BSC CUSTOM'S NATIONAL SCOPE 

BSC Signs will continue its focus on helping businesses in Colorado with signage, while BSC Custom will be offering its architectural and lighting services in Colorado and across the country. As was mentioned above, a large project is underway in Chicago's theatre district, and projects in other cities are being developed. It helps that we're located near one of the largest airline hubs in the United States - Denver International Airport. 

And of course a large portion of BSC Custom's projects will be in Metro Denver and other Front Range cities.
