Good Directions Ltd supply bespoke clocks for Grand Designs Live exhibition, celebrating 100 episodes of the TV show.
22/01/2013

This autumn Channel 4's flagship design show will reach its 100th episode and Kevin McCloud launches his book '100 Best Grand Designs'. So what better way to celebrate such miles stones, at the Grand designs Live exhibition in the NEC, than with custom designed clocks for the event.

Clock features have often been used over the decades not just to note the passing of time but also to celebrate it. Clocks of all styles and sizes have often been erected to commemorate Coronations and Jubilee's, as memorials to fallen heroes, denote anniversaries, celebrate centenaries or mark a special event such as at this exhibition.

Central to the show is the 'Grand Village' where a modern clock sculpture designed and manufactured by Good Directions Ltd will be erected. Featuring two clock faces on a blue sphere supported by six sweeping stainless steel legs, the clock feature will be surrounded by matching stainless steel seating. The clocks will be controlled by Good Directions state of the art Total Control System, which is a fully automatic battery backed controller for up to four clocks and is linked to the Atomic time signal via a radio receiver, which enables automatic summer and winter time changes.

The clocks will also have a custom designed chiming system. Traditionally our electronic chimes replicate the peals of Westminster Abbey but can be programmed with any type of chime, song or even animal noises such as a crowing rooster. However on this occasion the theme tune for Grand Designs has been used to mark each quarter of an hour with tolling on the hour.

Further on in the exhibition hall is the 'Automated Home' design area and Tech Cafe. Here there will be a feature wall with an array of clocks in the characteristic colours of Grand Designs Live exhibitions: blue, pink and white.

As well as totally custom designed clocks it is easy to adapt any of the standard designs from Good Directions range of clocks and match them to corporate colours, add wording or logos, creating a unique clock suitable for any customers requirements.
