Hamilton Town Entrance Signage

This project is stage two of a strategic landscaping project for Hamilton’s town entrances as identified in the 2011 Hamilton Structure Plan. Together with the landscaping works taking place on Ballarat Road, these works will significantly improve what is considered to be the primary entrance to Hamilton.

The following guiding principles have been used to develop the project scope:
- Strengthen urban gateways and key roadside edges.
- Improve visibility of town entrances.
- Create a sense of pride and aspiration for residents and visitors alike.

Council have received two designs and are now asking for Community feedback.

Option one

Option 1

Sign2

Main elements
Multi-faceted structure consisting of steel, masonry and stone elements, with thematic landscaping. The basalt wall is a reflection of the region’s volcanic heritage.

The rusted steel shape provides an agricultural connection, with rippled elements suggestive of the crimp of merino wool. The sandstone wall, with linear elements, is a link to the indigenous heritage.

The lettering and metal panel, with angled elements, represents the built environment and conveys a confident and prosperous
community.

Landscaping
Native plantings, textural rock and compacted sands to build on the themes and allow for ease of maintenance.

Project value: $158,500.00 plus GST

Option two
