Hinton Town Wayfinding

Urban Systems

Custom log wayfinding and trailhead signage of varying designs to enhance the community’s aesthetic and identity.

Heavy Industries collaborated with Urban Systems to finalize materials and fabrication processes.  The signage incorporated a variety of materials including stripped and treated logs, steel baseplates, foundations, waterjet-cut aluminum, attachment hardware, painted steel, and reflective lettering.  Heavy Industries organized all the sub-trades and suppliers required for various parts as well as completing production of several sub-assemblies in house.  The signs were assembled in our shop to pass quality control inspections before being shipped to Hinton.  Foundations were poured at various locations throughout the town and all the signage was installed by our site installation team.
