Houston Intercontinental Airport Systems

Custom Sign Engineering

The Houston Intercontinental Airport System (HAS) needed dynamic signage for all three of their airports; William P. Hobby Airport, George Bush Intercontinental and Ellington Airport. It was important that the signs were both appealing to the public eye and capable of displaying digital content.

Roles and Responsibilities:

  • Federal Heath was challenged with fabricating and installing a total of seven entry and exit signs; two entry sign displays and two exit signs for George Bush Intercontinental, one entry display and one exit sign for William P. Hobby Airport, and one entry display for Ellington Airport.
  • The entry displays were required to be attractive and impactful, while the exit signs were to greet Houston visitors with channel letters reading “Welcome to Houston” and a LED display that scrolled important messages for travelers.
  • Fabrication of each sign entailed creating compound radiuses with multiple intersections of heavy steel pipe and aluminum skirting.
  • Color matching each sign to match HAS standards was a critical element.
  • Federal Heath coordinated mobilization and all installations with the on-site general contractor, as well as HAS.


Federal Heath manufactured and installed all HAS signage, more than satisfying the inspectors and engineers as well as the City of Houston with the quality and workmanship built into each sign.
