Rochester Gas & Electric, NY - chimney signage


International Chimney was faced with the challenge of applying detailed artwork onto a 250' chimney.

Taking into account the fact that the International Chimney field crew applying the sign would be our standard chimney crew - very adept at rigging and accessing the chimney, but not artists - we developed a 'fool proof' method to apply the artwork. The 18' x 30' sign was carefully laid out in our engineering department using AutoCAD, duplicating the customer's artwork, and taking into consideration the slightly conical shape of the chimney. Once the sign was laid out to scale, a simple effective method was devised to transfer the layout to the chimney itself, and the painting was completed by hand.
