Fast Times at F1: Signage for Sabre Commercial

Earlier this year, Miller IDS highlighted and celebrated Sabre Commercial’s 10-year anniversary as a leader in the Austin commercial construction industry. Sabre is a company founded on collaborations with the best local industry talent, setting the bar high for quality work, running safe job sites, and maintaining ethical business practices. Sabre focuses on engagement within the communities it serves in San Marcos and Austin, an approach taken this past month at the Circuit of the America’s Formula 1 event. Miller IDS has worked with Sabre throughout its 10 years in business, and today working on everything from construction documents to large-scale job site signage and marketing materials. At Miller, we’ve loved working with Sabre from concept to completion on their Formula 1 tent signage.

For the fourth year in a row, Miller designed and printed signage that incorporated their anniversary while emphasizing the overall theme of F1 racing. The interlocking system of racetrack-related icons was not only visually appealing, but also highlights Sabre and their tent sponsors. Miller printed individualized name badges for each attendee, custom table toppers, and banners that displayed sponsor logos throughout the tent. We also had the pleasure of Sabre inviting Miller IDS’ employees to join the event! Our accounting manager, Kim Hilscher and her husband, as well as our technology sales and service manager, Jeff Stewart, enjoyed the Sabre Commercial tent too!

Kelly Maxwell, Marketing Manager at Sabre Commercial, who worked with both Miller IDS designer Micah Frugia and graphics account manager Ryan Bruce had this to say about working with Miller: “I love working with Miller IDS! Working primarily with their graphics department, I have had the opportunity to interact with them extensively through multiple high-stress marketing events and projects. From the design process through execution, I have always felt confident throughout. The graphics and printing team have made some of the trickier aspects of my event planning my lowest stressor.” 

Thank you, Sabre, for allowing us to design and print for your F1 tent for the fourth year in a row and for your continuous business throughout the year! To read more about Sabre Commercial, click here. Photos courtesy of Kelly Maxwell. 

Experience the Technology that is Revolutionizing Design & Construction March 8th

Sessions: 9:30am – 12pm (Lunch) 1pm – 3:30pm

The AEC technology revolution has arrived for you! Come and join your peers at the very first ABC (Associated Builders and Contractors) Technology Forum March 8th at Miller IDS’ Metric store. Why is this event so important to you? Because the construction industry is uniquely positioned to benefit from new technologies, yet remains among the least digitized sectors of our economy. You can register here:

Together, Miller IDS and a select group of technology vendors are going to share the benefits of the extremely valuable and cost effective technologies available to ABC members today.

This interactive event will provide you the opportunity to connect with technology representatives from companies such as Bluebeam, iPlanTables, VIMaec, 3DR, Hewlett Packard, Xerox and Synnex who are digitizing the construction industry and will help you discover how to propel your company forward while dramatically reducing the total project life cycle, cost and completion time. Additionally, you will also be able to meet and discuss your company’s network services needs with Greg Bibeau. And, if you are in need of BIM Services, Biswanath Todi of Pinnacle Infotech can address all of your BIM requirements.    

Sign up to attend this event and see how your business will benefit:

  • GET REAL-TIME UPDATES Instantly access the latest progress on a project and collaborate while on site
  • DECREASE REWORK Save time and money with precision data and quicker awareness of issues
  • INCREASE SAFETY See how drones and wearables can manage inspections and navigate hazardous areas

You’ve been hearing about drones – now find out why. A drone can do the same survey in under two days (with less than 30 minutes of actual flight time) that used to take a helicopter weeks to complete. Along with a significant benefit in saved time, drones can contribute in the following ways:
  • Increase safety
  • Improve accuracy 
  • Provide up-to-date information
  • Create video, exacting photos & 3-D modeling
  • Survey and inspect sites
Get your foot in the door by speaking directly with technology leaders from 3DR and take your efficiency to new heights. 

Turning Expectations into Reality

Virtual and augmented reality is taking the construction industry by storm. Join us on March 8th and see for yourself why VR & AR are no longer just something seen in the movies. For example, virtual-reality safety walk-throughs may become the default solution for those wanting to assess potential hazards. As a useful communication tool, there is nothing more real. Start your journey to VR here or on March 8th.

“VR is the definitive next step for AEC visualization, and it’s important to take that step now to stay ahead of the curve.”

Thanks to all who attended Technology Day Feb. 18th!

Last Thursday, we hosted a Technology Day event at our North Austin location featuring new technologies from Hewlett PackardOki-Data, Canon, KIP, iPlanTables and Bluebeam Software.

We held three different sessions, and hosted dozens of attendees to “ask the experts” about technologies best suited for their businesses.  It was a great success, and we look forward to hosting more of these events in the future.

Thanks again to all who attended. We appreciate it, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. We look forward to working with you. Stephen Coyle, General Manager, MILLER Imaging & Digital Solutions. 512.381.5271 or steve.coyle@MillerIDS.com.
