Please ID this Sans Serif

If someone could please assist in identifying this typeface? it's quite similar to House Industries Chalet series...

Many Thanks...

You should use the Edit link to move the thread out the "Solved IDs" section up to the main Type ID Board.

Can't find an exact match. Can be wrong but looks like a custom job based on some kind of Helvetica-like font. I would probably start with Helvetica Bold, recreating /w (ascenderless mirrored /m), /h (mix of mirrored /n and /f), /a (/d with a reduced ascender - note its ascender is not horizontally aligned with the next /n, what probably could accredit the customization) and /t (mirrored f with pulled up middle bar)
Same vein, probably effortless but not matching: Chalet, Parangon, AG Schoolbook, FF Schulbuch

It looks like a mish-mash of all sorts of things that don't fit particularly well together.

Couldn't agree more Nick - it's kinda hideous but our client only has it as a jpg and we need to use it across a range of things... (and they're not prepared to change to something else) I suspect it's a free-font from the murky depths of the interwebs but thought someone might have seen it somewhere..

thanks both for your help.
