Engineering

The Sign Broker

For work with larger signage solutions to proceed, you will likely need an engineer’s design and certification, as it’s often a requirement for approval by the location’s landlord or local council. The Sign Broker can take care of this hassle for you.

We’ll ensure that any project we undertake are structurally sound, and will stand the test of time while portraying your brand positively.

Our engineering services include:

  • Structural design of signage support structures
  • Structural engineers' certification

Not in Brisbane?

Your locality is no problem for us! Brisbane is just our base. We like the rest of the economy have a national and global view. We have pre-vetted subcontractors at the ready in all parts of the country who are skilled and eager to carry out this work, with our direction. We will provide the same level of service as we would for customers in our local geographic area.

Council Approvals

Something many amateurs overlook when it comes to erecting new signage for their commercial location is ensuring that the new signage solution meets local council standards and regulations. There’s little point installing new signage for your business if the council will ask you to take it down again.

Once the signage is ready to go, we’ll arrange for the council to pre-approve your signage, saving you a lot of headaches later.
