Heritage Lighthouse Plaque Stands


 

heritage lighthouse plaque stands

Description / Bill S-215 was passed by Canadian Parliament in May of 2008. Known as the Heritage Lighthouse Protection Act, it aimed to identify and conserve existing lighthouses across the country that were culturally, architecturally and historically significant. Upon designation, interpretive plaques were to be erected at each site to acknowledge this significance. This unique design challenge saw the Mills & Wright team tasked with developing several conceptual options and completing the detailed design for the interpretive plaque stands to be installed throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. The stands needed to be visually-appealing, economical to fabricate, tolerant of the coastal environment and adaptable for installation in vastly differing site conditions.
