But it took four weeks to get the spe- cial permits and a sign company to do the large-scale project that includes four 999-square-foot building signs still under construction. "The client reached out to us," says Matt Baker, co-owner of Bakers' Signs & Manufacturing, a commercial sign company based in Conroe, Texas, which serves Texas and surrounding states. "He had prior issues with other sign compa- nies. We welcomed the challenge and met him on site." THE LARGEST IN HOUSTON Baker says the challenges included "the size of the job, the magnitude and scope of work, and the permitting process," and the sourcing and size of the materials. "With a lot of companies, their doors aren't big enough to get the sign out of the shop," Baker says. "We had to get engi- neering for the sign itself, the main foun- dation base, and the steel structure. We have an engineer we work directly with within our company."
