Regular signage and internal wayfinding projects for the University of Reading: for new buildings and extensive refurbishments conduct a wayfinding audit and assess the types, amounts and locations of signs required then propose new signs.
Use building plans and early site visits during construction to estimate signs required. Draft specifications in MS Word to request supplier quotes for budgeting.
Each proposal consisted of a photo-based report (which also acted as a proof) and annotated building plans (showing sign types and general locations). Proposals had to be approved by the Estates & Facilities project manager and their client team. After approval request updated supplier quotes.
Provide specifications, supplier instructions and artwork for identified maps and signs. Answer supplier queries, oversee installation and ensure project completion on behalf of the University.
