Mackenzie District Council seeks services to design and construct great new signs that show off our District
and our fantastic new logo. We need sturdy long-lasting and memorable outdoor signs that follow the
graphic requirements set out in the Brand Guide Addendum and the Mackenzie District Council logo
What we need
Mackenzie District Council seeks services to design and construct new signs including sign boards and
mounting structures that will be installed in public places. This RFT relates to the engagement of a signs
supplier experienced in design as well as sign construction methods.
A ‘Brand Guide Addendum: Signs for Parks and Community Facilities’ has been developed that includes the
new Council logo. The Addendum shows signs for different purposes but does not fully detail proposed
construction. Council is open to proposed sign materials and construction methods that achieve the
required look and sturdiness.
Council will engage a local contractor to install the signs.
While there is no specific programme for new and replacement signs, it is expected that approximately 100-
120 signs will be required over the next three years to address new and replacement sign needs.
Payment to the selected Supplier would be at the delivery of each sign. Signs would be delivered to either
Fairlie or Twizel by a contractor agreed between the supplier and us.
Signs are important, they tell people where they are and where they need to go. We want great looking
signs that last the distance (and the climate). There is some flexibility in sign construction, and we want
assistance from sign experts to create great new signs.
What we don’t want
We definitely don’t want signs that do not meet our graphic expectations or are not up to the exterior
conditions experienced in the Mackenzie District.
When do we need it?
We seek a partner to supply signs over the next three to five years. As we identify sign needs we will send
information through to the successful supplier so the signs can be built.
Why should you Tender?
This is your chance to offer your expertise to help refresh signs in public places throughout the Mackenzie
District Council area and show of your design and sign making skills in one of the country’s highest profile
