Billboards & Scoreboards:

Formerly known as Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Buffalo Bills revealed this season that their stadium would be rebranded as New Era Field. The back of the 34' H x 158' W scoreboard is framed by wind-permeable AdMesh material.

Below, Britten's installation crew uses a series of lifts to simultanously hoist this 18' H x 184' W Mesh banner on the back of the grand stands.

Why Time Off is Important

by Britten HR 09/02/2016

Feeling like a vacation would do you good? I’m sure most of us can relate, but as it turns out, actually taking that vacation is easier said than done for a lot of Americans. According to The Guardian, in 2014, “the number of unused vacation days in the US reached a 40-year high. Researchers at Oxford Economics hired by the US Travel Association put the numbers at about 169m days, equivalent to $52.4bn in lost benefits.”

While we love working on big projects all across the country, Summer is truly a special time here in northern Michigan and we'd like to showcase a couple of recent projects from right here in our own backyard!

We're always happy to have our customers come visit, too. Please drop us a line if you'll be in the area!


The 90th Annual National Cherry Festival:

Another Cherry Festival is in the books, and over half a million people  visited the Grand Traverse region in the first eight days of July. With so much to see and do, Britten was on hand to add some large format color to go with the Fireworks and Blue Angels air shows, the parades and the concerts, the pie eating contests, and everything in between.

Attendees of the Festival passed underneath the magnificent entrance archway that marked the entrance to the open space, and light pole banners could be seen all along Grand Traverse bay. Keeping pedestrians and motorists safe were the long runs of fence scrim on either side of Grandview Parkway.
