Signage Project for New Corporate HQ
Ball Corporation is one of Colorado’s largest companies, with annual sales exceeding $11.5 Billion from its metal packaging and aerospace divisions. The 140 year old company has over 18,300 employees worldwide. Ball’s corporate headquarters recently moved to 9200 W. 108th Circle in Westminster, where they have had existing manufacturing facilities for many years. We are proud to have been chosen to design, build, and install a large package of interior and exterior signage for the new headquarters. BSC Signs is a full service sign company with custom fabrication capabilities, and we’re able to complete large projects entirely in-house.
Campus Entrance Signage
Ball Corporation’s corporate headquarters is located on a large business park property on West 108th Circle in Westminster, about 17 miles north of downtown Denver and just south of the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport. For anyone visiting for the first time, it’s essential to make the location easy to find, day or night. The buildings are set well back from 108th Avenue, so we built a large monument sign for the campus entrance. It features an aluminum frame, a masonry base, dimensional letters and logo, and is illuminated with spotlights.
The Ball campus already had existing buildings for its aerospace and metal packaging divisions, so it was essential to provide wayfinding and information signs. We built a set of post and panel signs to make it easy for visitors and employees to find their way between the new headquarters and other buildings. These signs are solidly built to stand up to Colorado’s harsh climate, with aluminum framing and steel posts.
Main Entrance Signage
The main entrance to the headquarters features a beautiful cast aluminum wall sign, provided by the client. The use of aluminum reflects the importance of the material to the company, as it is used extensively in their metal packaging division. The sign is flush mounted to the granite wall with concealed fasteners.
Once they’ve entered the headquarters building, visitors will see a large Ball Corporation sign in the reception area. This sign is 3′ x 3′ and features the Ball corporate color, painted on an acrylic panel and mounted with standoffs on the glass wall of the reception area. Construction was still underway when we installed this sign.
Architectural Feature Wall for HQ Lobby
The final stop on our tour of this project is the Ball Corporation headquarters lobby. It’s a great example of our custom fabrication capabilities. We fabricated and installed a large architectural feature wall that includes a Ball logo sign and two video displays. This spectacular piece has an aluminum backing panel that is nearly 20 feet tall, and has two semi-circular curves. It’s not often that our team has the opportunity to work on a signature piece like this! It was a challenging installation and we’re very happy with the final result. BSC Custom, our specialty fabrication division, can design, build, and install unique architectural elements similar to this project.
We would like to thank Ball Corporation for the opportunity to provide the signage for their corporate headquarters, and thank you to Swinerton Inc., the general contractor for the headquarters building.
