Helping To Highlight Health, Dignity And Community In Edmonton, Alberta
The Enoch Cree Nation is located in Treaty No. 6 territory. As part of the leadership’s commitment to building a stronger, healthier, and more unified community, several renovations were undertaken to improve service delivery from the Enoch Cree Nation Health Services Centre.
Krawford Construction brought Behrends Group onboard to consult, design, manufacture, and install the signage for the upgrade. We worked directly with the architect, Workun Garrick from Workun Garrick Partnership Architecture and Interior Design, to formulate the most effective design build.
The Behrends Design Team completed the pylon sign design internally, looking at the logistical requirements as well as taking into account the cultural and branding elements of the project. The design reflects the purpose and aim of the Health Services Centre while remaining consistent with the heart of Enoch Cree Nation’s cultural identity.
Once the design was approved, Behrends worked with Krawford to manufacture the final product. This pylon sign includes a digital screen component, an 8mm LED RGB which displays color text and images. This will better enable the Enoch Cree Nation’s Health Services to offer important service information to the community in an easily accessible format.
The Enoch Cree Nation pylon sign stands at 11ft high and 15ft wide with a lightbox of 7ft x 5ft and face-lit letters to ensure it is visible in all weather conditions and times of day.
Behrends Group is an active proponent of First Nation community initiatives, and we view our work in this project as part of a larger collective effort to bring communities together in dignity, strength, and good health. This includes larger roleplayers such as government health departments and NGOs, as well as companies like Behrends, whose contribution is subtle and long term.
