Caird Hall signs

Published

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).
