I was sitting in my office the other day when a Chief Architect called me and asked for an opinion. The tables were turned because most of the time people call Cheif Architects asking for an opinion or a Chief Architect will set what everyone else’s opinion will be. Needless to say… I took the call!
The reason for the call came down to the number of sign upgrades they were mandated to complete and he wanted to know how I could help lower the cost for what I do. It might surprise you but I was more than willing to participate in something that could potentially cost me money. I am all about customer need. The idea the architect had was to reuse or some might call it repurpose existing signs and create new ones. The idea had merit so I went to work. I did some research on what signs we wanted to look at, the cost of removal and then re-install and the lag time of being without a sign.
The architect was looking at it from a pure cost point of view and I saw the actual monetary cost along with being able to recycle and reuse what was already in place. Because of the labor costs associated with removal and re-install, safety of the workers involved and insurance costs we weren’t able to make an impact right now. It has got me thinking how we can lower the cost and reuse product in the future and there may be an opportunity there in the long run. I love when I have the chance to do anything like this.
