Daikin Applied Americas

Daikin Applied Americas in Faribault, MN

Daikin Applied Americas welcomed the completion of their new pylon sign along I35-W just north of Faribault, Minnesota. Partnering with Indigo Signworks, the double-sided LED illuminated cabinet and 12’ high x 30’5” wide Daktronics GS6-15.85 mm EMCs was completed on February 7, 2020. The pylon sign stands a proud 55 feet in the air and is easily visible for miles from the interstate and roadways surrounding the Daikin Applied Americas site located at 15620 Acorn Trail.

Beginning with an onsite meeting on May 1, 2019, to discuss Daikin’s signage needs at their new property, which was formerly a Malt-o-Meal warehouse, Indigo Signworks’ sales team and designers set out to create premier signage that not only met the Daikin Applied brand standards, but enabled them to showcase the products and superior reputation of Daikin Applied Americas.

A crane test was completed on August 1, 2019, for the Daikin executives and engineers along with the Indigo Signworks sales and installation crew to establish the ideal height, size and location for the pylon sign. Hydrovac excavation began in late January, digging to an engineer-certified depth of 21 feet. The 3-stage steel poles were erected the following week which then enabled Indigo Signworks to install the EMCs and upper cabinet. With pretesting of the signage on the ground before they were installed, additional tests were conducted on February 6th in preparation for the final completion and walk-through with the Daikin North American Director of Facilities, Channel Marketing Specialist and Maintenance & Facilities Engineer the following day. 

Overall, the project was a huge success and Indigo Signworks’ image experts met the dreams, desires and deadline Daikin Applied Americas had established!

Minnesota National Bank Updating their Signage upon their New Branding

Posted on by Indigo Signworks, Inc. in Articles, Customer Spotlight, Featured Jobs Leave a comment

MN National Bank Signage Updates

Minnesota National Bank’s history dates back to 1902 when they were known as the Merchant’s National Bank of Sauk Centre. In 1987, the bank was sold to a group of local owners to become First National Bank. In 2008, they merged with Lake Country State Bank and were renamed Minnesota National Bank, retaining the tradition of being a community bank with expanded offices in Sauk Centre, Long Prairie and Pelican Rapids, Minnesota. MNB is in full-swing updating their signage to match their new branding. MNB, along with HTG Architects, out of Eden Prairie, MN, then made contact with Indigo in early 2015 to discuss fully updating the entire Long Prairie location’s signage needs.

Long Prairie, MN

Minnesota National Bank, Long Prairie began the process of a building renovation, which in turn, evolved into a new branding signage package. (see photos below) During the initial conversation with HTG Architects, we had to discuss the best way to overcome structural obstacles of the existing building to try to implement individual channel letters on an outer wall, as there was no access for wiring behind it. It was decided to move forward with a hinged retro frame LED illuminated cabinet on the building front, and refurbishing the existing cabinet on the back of the building. The pylon sign covered multiple elements of our industry with routed push-thru acrylic letters on the top portion, back to back 15.85mm Daktronics displays, LED illuminated cabinets with rigid dividers and stud mounted PVC address numbers on the base cladding. They were very pleased with the halo effect of the push-thru look night illumination on the top routed aluminum faces.

Pelican Rapids, MN

With the completion of the Long Prairie location, we then approached the image at their Pelican Rapids location. After a number of discussed options, they decided to replicate the Long Prairie pylon for that location. It’s currently in production (see photos below) and hope to see it up before Christmas. With a second electronic message center location, the Daktronics cloud-based control suite was converted from a local access to a shared control for multiple locations. This will allow them to edit and publish presentations already created from branch to branch with the same matrix size message centers.

Sauk Centre, MN

Lastly, their new 3-story building currently under construction for their main branch office in Sauk Centre will have incredible exposure for their new image, located on the entrance corner of the Super Walmart. The pylon will incorporate the same elements as their previously fabricated structures with a few added tenant panels, three large LED illuminated wall cabinets, some directional signage, and two entrance monuments. (see photos below) The completion of this project will tie all the branches together with an updated first-impression and Daktronics software.

It’s truly been a pleasure to work with them as well as HTG Architects on these projects!
