Signs & Shapes International
Signs & Shapes manufactures inflatable, “WalkAround®” mascots for sports teams, amusement parks and other organizations as well as huge flags and inflatable RocketSigns. It also rents inflatables and flags and provides contract management of costumes and staffing for appearances around the world—all from a two-year-old, energy-efficient facility in north Omaha.
Co-owners Scott Bowen and his father, Lee, helped design the new building to incorporate innovative energy-saving features including ground source-coupled geothermal heat pumps that condition the air. Skylights stream natural light into the building. Their efforts have earned an “Engineering Excellence Award” from the American Council of Engineers.
