Caird Hall signs


2nd December 2020

A new high profile illuminated sign for the Caird Hall could be fitted early next year if councillors back the move next week.

The city development committee will consider tenders worth a total of £140,500 for the half meter tall sign on the south facing wall of the building as well as two digital advertising boards at the venue and another at the McManus.

Mark Flynn committee convener said: “With the development of the waterfront and the prominent position that the Caird Hall has overlooking Slessor Gardens a back lit bronze sign announcing the venue would be a fitting addition to the streetscape.

“We want to be in a position to have the city centre at its best when it is safe again for visitors to come to Dundee.”

If the tenders are approved the Caird Hall sign will be erected by the construction services division of Dundee City Council while the digital advertising boards will be installed by Efficient Infrastructure.

Both contracts are expected to be started early next year and completed by spring.

The city development committee meets on Monday (December 7).

Dundee City Council

Dundee draws skilled workers from a 60-minute catchment population of 640,000 and has a local population of over 140,000. The availability of a large pool of highly skilled labour is a key feature in the Dundee economy. Flexibility in the labour force is currently more prevalent in Dundee than in Scotland as a whole. All forms of labour market flexibility - part-time, temporary employment, self-employment and shift work - are widely operational within the city. Labour force stability in the city is excellent, enabling companies to plan with confidence. Labour turnover levels are less than 5% and absenteeism averages 2%.
