Featured Project: Signs for Ball Corp. HQ

BSC Signs, a full-service licensed sign contractor and custom fabricator based in Broomfield, Colorado, recently outfitted Ball Corporation’s new corporate headquarters with a large package of interior and exterior signage.

Campus entrance signage

Ball Corporation’s corporate headquarters is located on a large business park property in Westminster, Colorado, about 17 miles north of downtown Denver. For anyone visiting for the first time, it’s essential to make the location easy to find, whether day or night. The buildings sit back from the main road, so BSC Signs built a monument sign for the campus entrance. It features an aluminum frame, a masonry base, and dimensional letters and logo. Spotlights illuminate the sign.

Wayfinding signage

The Ball campus already had existing buildings for its aerospace and metal packaging divisions, so it was essential to provide wayfinding and information signs. BSC Signs 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 feature aluminum framing and steel posts, allowing them to stand up to Colorado’s harsh climate.

Main entrance signage

The main entrance to the headquarters features a 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.

Reception sign

Once visitors enter the headquarters building, they’ll 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 reception area’s glass wall.

Architectural feature wall for HQ lobby

The final stop on the tour of this project is the Ball Corporation headquarters lobby. BSC Signs 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′ tall and has two semi-circular curves.

It’s not often the BSC Signs team has the opportunity to work on a signature piece like this. The company says it was a challenge, but they’re happy with the result.
