Hutchies takes our signage seriously

We construct hundreds of projects each year across Australia. Consistent presentation of quality signage on all of Hutchies' projects enhances our image and is important for our reputation as Australia’s best builder. 

All Hutchies’ sites are to display professional signage, taking full advantage of the positive marketing impact and effectively communicating positive messages and information with people who are on our site or nearby relating to safety and the works. We are always open to fresh ideas on how we can make our signage stand out - check out our illuminated examples below for example.

This signage guide provides information to teams on Hutchies’ expectations. Understandably, each site is unique in its requirements and the following package is intended to cover the majority of situations. We encourage all ideas to be shared for review. 

All sites are to develop a Signage Plan prior to commencement on site. This plan should detail specifically which signage will be used on site, its location and implementation and can form part of the wider Construction Management Plan.

The Signage Plan is to contain, at a minimum:

  • Signage types
  • Signage sizes
  • Signage locations
  • Signage staging plan / implementation

It is the sole responsibility of Team Leaders to ensure their respective projects and sites meet Hutchies’ signage requirements. 

Keep it simple and take the less is more approach. Too much signage looks unprofessional and overbearing, whereas too little or poorly presented signage looks ordinary. 

Some signage requirements are compulsory – such as health & safety and the licensing authority requirements relevant to each state and territory or even councils. Hutchies’ signage policy is all about presenting a good image.

Get in touch if you need some help, otherwise this guide will provide you access to our signage catalogue and examples for your project.

New Signage Catalogue

Hutchies has a brand new signage catalogue that includes more than 1,000 new designs and an online ordering system to make life easier. A preview of the new catalogue is included below in each of our new categories.

You may have already noticed new signage rolling out to your projects, if not it will be when you place your next order. If you continue to use the old catalogue / ordering process, old designs will now be substituted for new designs automatically. We highly recommend switching across to the new material as soon as possible to make the process a whole lot easier.

To access the new online system, you just need to register your details below and our supplier SS Signs (formerly known as Civic Media) will be in touch with your login details and instructions on how to use the new platform.

If you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact the Comms Team on +61 7 3859 6349 or comms@hutchies.com.au.

Cranes

Hutchies' new 3D style crane deck signs present a much sharper and bolder look for our signage. There are a range of benefits and improvements to our new signs:

  • Cheaper to manufacture than traditional / older style lightboxes
  • New design featuring a black background to ensure maximum visibility during the day against blue and white skies
  • Individual blue illuminated 3D letters (HUTCHIES) for longer distance viewing of the logo
  • Longer lasting and brighter LED (with in-built dimmer for maximum control)
  • Better quality materials with UV protections and a 5 - 10 years lifespan
  • Option to specify in built RGB colour mixing LEDs to tie into any local events / holidays etc
  • Each sign comes with a wireless remote for up to 60m distance of control
  • Made locally in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne depending on the job location

If you are using old / existing lightboxes, we have the same design in skin artwork for printing and fitting on existing ones below for download.

Old Lightbox Style

Previously a lot of our cranes had lightboxes with Hutchinson Builders logos printed on the skins. We're no longer ordering new lightboxes. Instead we recommend the above standard style which is more affordable and longer lasting, plus they look awesome. 

Our old fleet of lightboxes can still be used though, however they need to have our new design printed as the skin. The new design has a black background so its visible during the day against blue and light skies and a large white HUTCHIES logo instead of our full HB logo for maximum visibility for long distance views.

The new design artwork for old lightboxes is available below and is 4800mm x 1200mm.
