King George V, Southport
DURATION ON SITE
King George V college invited Aztec to look at creating a new, bright, vibrant and inviting reception area to welcome student and visitors. The original reception was dated and lacked natural light, the brief was to create a modern, welcoming space. On approach to the building, the structure originally had limited signage to indicate the location of the main entrance. Aztec were then challenged to provide a solution alongside the Architect to resolve this issue.
The reception received a modernisation schedule. First, the existing reception was demolished, taking out the original glazed screens and doors. This allowed for the expansion of the existing slab to make ready for the installation of new glazed screens and double door lobby. The works also included new lighting and air blade heating above the main entrance. On completion of the internal works, new signage was installed at high level to the front of the college – highlighting the application of the building
The client now has well defined signage to the building and a reception of distinction. The signage makes great use of the concrete, architectural
cylinder signifying the colleges name, with the main entrance text mounted ontop of the canopy. The reception now also benefits from a modern
auto door entrance, which is well illuminated thanks to the new glazed screens.
