Gillette World Shaving Headquarters Sign:
From the first letter to the last, the sign stretches 400 feet long, stands 16 feet tall, and contained 5,000 feet of Neon tubing. Costing over $32,000 per year to operate, and damaged by the elements, it was becoming a glutinous eyesore. With the Neon removed and replaced with over 14,000 LED modules, the sign now consumes only $5,000 per year worth of electricity. Integrated Electric worked with NStar and secured a $56,000 dollar grant towards the project, making the payback for Proctor and Gamble less than three years.
Several companies were considered for this project, but Integrated Electric was chosen due to our ability to present options and cost estimates expeditiously, and our capability to complete the project quickly for Gillette. Signs by Tomorrow Norton was our obvious choice, both for their experience with LED modules as well as their expertise with manufacturing and installing the massive replacement Lexan faces needed for the sign.
Integrated Electric, along with Signs by Tomorrow, was able to present a cost estimate, energy consumption calculations, payback figures, construction schedule, and fully functional models to Gillette in less than two weeks. Construction began in December and was completed in early January. Fully restored and retrofitted, Gillette World Shaving Headquarters will continue to shine brightly on the Boston skyline for many years to come, while leaving a much smaller carbon footprint.
