UTES FANS HEADED TO LAS VEGAS FOR PAC 12 CHAMPIONSHIP WILL SEE NEARLY 4,000 YESCO SIGNS AT ALLEGIANT STADIUM
SALT LAKE CITY (November 2021) – YESCO, the Salt Lake City-based, 101-year-old company known for creating, repairing and maintaining internationally recognizable signs, is a proud partner of the Las Vegas Raiders and Allegiant Stadium. University of Utah fans visiting the stadium this Friday, Dec. 3, to watch the Utes play for the PAC 12 Football Championship against Oregon will see nearly 4,000 signs YESCO fabricated for the venue, including all stadium naming signage, pylon sign and interior and exterior directional signs.
“YESCO is a Salt Lake City-based business, and we are excited to see our Utes play for the championship at Allegiant Stadium where we installed the majority of the signs,” said Jeff Young, executive vice president, YESCO. “Many of our team members are graduates of the university and we look forward to watching the game.”
Encompassing approximately 50,000-man hours of work, YESCO fabricated and installed the exterior signage including the two rooftop signs spanning an impressive 564 feet each for a combined total of 115,056 square feet and comprising nearly two miles of outline lighting. With the exception of the interior scoring system provided by other vendors, YESCO built many other signs, such as the stadium’s freestanding pylon sign, measures 124 feet in height and 44 feet in width, with the electronics portion measuring 80-by-36 feet. With the exception of the pylon sign, all signs fabricated by YESCO were designed by Infinite Scale of Salt Lake City.
To accentuate the dramatic architecture of the stadium, YESCO installed white light ribbons comprising one-and-a-half total miles of light band. Massive individual illuminated letters reading “Allegiant Stadium” on the interior and exterior of the facility range from 20 to 31 feet in height. At Raiders Headquarters, the Intermountain Healthcare Performance Center, YESCO also installed all building and directional signs, including the pinnacle, outdoor Raiders’ shield sign measuring 27 by 25 feet.
YESCO enjoyed collaborating with Infinite Scale, the designer of record, as well as the general contractors on the project, Mortenson Construction and McCarthy Construction.
