PARK COMMUNITY SCHOOL

Unique Wayfinding for New School

Principle worked in close collaboration with design agency SoVibrant to deliver a unique wayfinding scheme for the newly constructed Park Community School in Havant, Hampshire.

The internal and external wayfinding signage follows the school’s chosen theme of ‘Parks of the World’, which demanded a very unique specification, and proved a challenge for the team in sourcing the correct substrate and fabrication processes.

Following approval of prototypes and samples, Principle completed the first phase of the project - wayfinding and an external illuminated sign - during the school summer holidays (August 2014), with the external signage due for completion in May 2015.

Individual elements created for this scheme included:

  • 18mm veneered MDF with laser and CNC cut graphics and colour fills.
  • 158 door identity discs.
  • 28 finger post signs.
  • 18 wall directory panels.
  • 1 large welcome sign.

The new school year commenced on 3 September with the wayfinding scheme in place and staff and students able to use half of their new facilities. The refurbishment for the remainder of the school will be completed by March 2015.
