Tyko Sign Group was given the honor of working with one of the country’s largest and most reputable newspapers. The LA Times was embarking on a historic relocation from Downtown Los Angeles to El Segundo and needed high-rise signage.
Los Angeles, CA
10-Foot Face Lit Letters with Day/Night Vinyl Mounted on 88-Foot Steel Framing System
2 Sets of Face Lit Letters
We wanted to give the publication a distinguished high-rise sign to mark its arrival in El Segundo. There was an extensive advisory and due diligence phase with technical site surveys and liaising with the city over several months. Our team put in hours of planning and preparation for a project of this magnitude, which required a specific crew of certified welders and licensed installers. They had to assemble a metal frame, mount 10-foot letters onto the brackets on site, then lift the completed structure 112 feet into the air and onto the roof using a boom crane. We coordinated every step of the process with ease and professionalism, showcasing the very best of our end-to-end services.
The installation was fully documented and celebrated with camera crews as a milestone for the LA Times—the beginning of a new era in its new location. This was also a very proud moment for Tyko Sign Group to be able to have such a monumental impact on our home, the city of Los Angeles.
