ODEON

THE STORY

After 30 years, Odeon decided to open a new cinema in Oldham. The new seven-screen cinema is set to transform local entertainment. Sitting right in the heart of the old town hall, it retains several of the grade-II listed building’s historic features and serves to  preserve the landmark for future generations.

The multi-million-pound project is one-of-a-kind and brings the old into the new. Built using the latest technology, it includes a state-of-the-art Odeon exclusive ISENSE screen, one of just three in the UK.

THE BRIEF

Image Technique were appointed as the main signage contractor for the whole Odeon development, working side-by-side with established architects. The project was to include high and low-level Odeon lettering, Costa signage and ISENSE illuminated letters onto the glass facade, as well as all the internal way-finding signage throughout the cinema.

THE RESULT

Over 60 individual signs were fitted, not including small wayfinding plaques. Image also provided a full signage pack which included the likes of 3x high-level 2m edge-lit acrylic blade signs displaying the food brands and cinema tickets.

A total of x6 fully illuminated internal totem signs plus one external digital totem, all  including a digital package,  were provided by Image. We also incorporated our own Hi-Brite illuminated letters to illuminate the auditorium entrance

THE STORY

In 2016 Sure have launched their flagship store of the future in Guernsey having previously refurbished stores on both Isle of Man and Jersey.The previous store layouts looked tired and did not appeal to their customers in the way that they wanted them to see their products.As well as changing the look of the store there has been an extensive focus on what the customers require, providing them with a fresh, new experience.

THE BRIEF

Following the recent success of the Sure, Isle of Wight and Jersey stores, Image Technique have again been given the task to deliver the same service albeit to the level expected at a flagship store for Waterloo House, Guernsey.

Working alongside the interior design specialist, Made In Place and our software partners Acquire Digital we installed a 14 screen video strip for digital marketing purposes which incorporated a series of fully interactive screens at certain key points across the store. This allows customers a new understanding of the digital future and the ability to interact with products and offers through the use of the latest in store technology.

55 SPRING GARDENS

By | | No Comments

The Story

55 Spring Gardens brings you something strictly unconventional, bending the rules normally applied to traditional office space. If you’re looking for a confident, forward thinking work space in the heart of Manchester, you’ve found it!

55 Spring Gardens has been transformed into a stunning, Grade A office space, ideal for the modern occupier.

The Brief

As part of the redevelopment of 55 Spring Gardens, Image Technique were appointed as the main contractor for implementing the signage, entrance portico lighting, digital media and audio throughout the main entrance foyer and lift lobbies within the building.

Working in conjunction with both ADT Workplace, FRA and MBE Glazing, we initially developed the lighting and signage specification for the glazed entrance portico to encompass a DMX controlled, full colour changing entrance structure that is not only visable from outside, but returns within the entrance foyer of the building itself.

Following on from the initial phase of the project, Image Technique were commissioned by CBRE and ADT Workplace to implement a fully integrated digital media and atmospheric audio system. This was a fully customised system designed for 55 SPG by Image Technique alongside our strategic software development partner Acquire Digital.

The Result

The project resulted in a spectacular colour changing entrance feature complete with vertically stacked brushed stainless steel letters and over head entrance numerals internally illuminated and adhered to the glazing.

Internally we implemented a digitally projected tenant directory, complete with subtle animation, a branded colour changing ‘gobo’ projector for corporate events and a series of indvidual media screens within privacy booths complete with full wireless connectivity.

The showpiece was the videowall, constructed of 9No 55” ultra thin bezel commercial screens complete with fully wireless connectivity via handheld tablet that has the custom built software loaded onto the desktop. This enables the user to interact with the videowall via a series of ‘mode’ switches, allowing 4K content to be displayed from the pre-configured library complete with atmospheric sounds, a direct feed for live televison and finally a presentation mode feature to allow third party content to be displayed at the swipe of the screen or at the touch of a button.
