St. George Plantation
St. George Plantation is an exclusive gulf-and-bay-front private community located on the west end of St. George Island. The Plantation includes five miles of white-sand beaches and individually-owned cottages and homes built in different architectural designs.
To preserve the spirit of nature on St. George’s Island, the Plantation had used wooden stop and street signs in its seclusive neighborhood. However, as wood is wont to do, the once rustic community signs soon rotted and faded within a few years. St. George Plantation found itself in need of a major upgrade, one that would not only provide for new, upgraded signage, but for a solution that would bring together elements of its exclusive aesthetic and brand. But that wasn’t all. The Plantation was also looking for other site improvements, such as park benches, waste receptacles, and poolside furnishings that were natural-looking, attractive, and sustainable.
Site Essentials stepped up to the plate to answer The Plantation’s quandary. With its manufacture-to-order capabilities, Site Essentials was able to meet St. George’s specific needs. Instead of the standard cast aluminum street signs, Site Essentials suggested recycled plastic posts and frames instead. Recycled HDPE is a durable recycled plastic material that is most popularly used in constructing plastic lumber. Best of all, it is fade resistant and rot-free, therefore serving as a perfect alternative to the Plantation’s decaying wooden signs. In all, Site Essentials provided for 30 custom recycled plastic stop and street sign units with reflective vinyl to meet DOT specifications. Each of those 30 street signs also included a logo tail with the property’s signature icon, further reinforcing the property’s brand.
