The Education sector has probably changed more than any other in the last few years and has been driven by such policies as:
Building Schools for the Future (BSF)
Cobal Signs has built up a wealth of experience in working with architects and contractors whether the project is PFI, design and build or a more traditional contract. Increasingly, we are working very closely with Principals and Head Teachers.
A typical signage brief will encompass branding, both external and internal, and comprehensive wayfinding. We offer a consultancy service to help develop the brief and to ensure that it is fully met. We can supply mood boards and visuals to help develop the look and feel. Whether your Education project is an extensive new university or college facility or a school refurbishment, Cobal can devise cost effective signage schemes to suit your needs.
Internal education signage
A typical brief for the interior of academic buildings can be divided into three sections. Firstly, branding, which will be probably wall mounted in or near the Reception Area and consistent with the external branding. Secondly, wayfinding which will commence at the main entrance and be located at strategic points around the building. Thirdly, accessories, the provision of notice boards magnetic dry wipe whiteboards, and pin boards, through to glass display cases which will probably be lockable.
