Brighton and Hove Albion Crest creation

27th April 2017

Resin bound Seagulls club crest in colours made from pigmented quartz Laura Collins, Projects Manager at the stadium was tasked with commissioning a company to produce a giant Seagulls crest, on the American Express Community Stadium concourse. 

After looking for a company who specialise in custom paved logos, Laura came across Clearstone, a specialist resin bound surfacing installer, a local company with their base in Sussex.

The football team are nicknamed the ‘Seagulls’ and their crest is an iconic symbol that fans recognise around the world. Andy in the office drew the logo in Vectorworks, and got another local company Cirrus Laser of Burgess Hill to laser cut the intricate stencil formers, which were carefully pinned in place by Clearstone’s talented installation team. Infilled with bright white and blue pigmented quartz which represent the teams home colours of blue and white stripes that they play in.

“We wanted to install a giant club crest to welcome our fans to the Amex stadium and approached Clearstone as a company local to us. We are very happy with the final result and the quality of the work is first class. The Clearstone team were a pleasure to work with and they ensured the job was completed professionally and promptly. We would not hesitate to recommend them to others.” Laura Collins, Projects Manager, Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club.

Post Show Review

27th April 2017

We had an excellent 3 day show at Farnborough on 21st, 22nd and 23rd March. Visitor numbers were similar to previous years, perhaps slightly higher, we had many new prospects and existing customers visit our stand.

Wednesday was the busiest day, Thursday for a last day was much busier than previously and Tuesday was perhaps the quietest day of the whole show.

Many visitors to the stand signed-up for a store tour at Cirrus Laser and I have been welcoming visitors almost on a daily basis for their tour of our latest 6kW laser and our secondary operations such as press brake folding, laser marking, VMC machining and our fastener inserting machine (Pemserter).

Again, the water jet has been popular with visitors as we are cutting a few hundred kilo’s of flint for a new Cinema façade in Lewes, there will be more news on this item next month. We have booked our stand again for 2018 and this will be in the new purpose built permanent structure, so this year was the last year of tent accommodation with all the wind, rain and snow problems that the tent has thrown at exhibitors for the past 5 years. The new structure was under construction during the show and looks to be a marvellous new venue for the show which next year reverts back to February (6th to 8th for your diaries).
