3rd Place for Smaller Freestanding Electrical Signs – The quarry Restaurant
Texas Sign Association (TSA) awarded Southwest Signs employee, Gabriel Garza, 3rd place for The Quarry Restaurant sign. The award was presented for one of the best smaller freestanding electrical signs in the state of Texas. This sign is a double-faced monument sign with reverse channel letters, illuminated with LED lights using solar panels and a battery storage system. The Quarry Restaurant sign, one of the first 100 percent solar-powered signs in San Antonio, was designed, manufactured and installed by Southwest Signs This sign is helping the customer reduce power consumption costs as well as having a positive environmental impact.
The sign started as a re-face using the existing sign, but after group collaboration it ended up being a renovation to the existing sign with a new structure. Gabriel says, “It is great being recognized, but the award came about because of the whole contribution of our Southwest Signs staff. From the client and sales staff, to the art department and production team, to the final structure being installed by our crew.” Group effort and determination helped this concept become a reality.
