Case study: HealthECare
HealthECare are one of Australia’s largest privately-owned healthcare organisations and the 3rd largest corporate private hospital operator in the country. Signarama Dandenong have been their primary signage supplier for over 10 years in Melbourne’s South East.
HealthECare were opening their first greenfield site, Robina Private Hospital, at Robina on the Gold Coast. They reached out to Signarama Dandenong to quote for all internal way finding signage and external illuminated signage, which was pre-set in the architectural design and planning approval. The internal way finding requirement was comprehensive and needed to be clear, concise and easily understood by patients and visitors of the hospital.
Signarama Dandenong Solution:
As the Robina site was HeathECare’s first ground-up build, they relied heavily on our project management skills to effectively deal with a number of constraints. We ran very clear processes to handle the many iterations of the design and ensure communication across the two states was seamless. We worked closely with the builder, Woolams Constructions, to adapt our signage and mounting to the structural constraints while delivering the full impact required by the design.
As we were working across states, we utilised the strength of our national Signarama network. We called on our West Burleigh warehouse to store graphics, provide recommendations for the best local electrical installers and work with us to help complete the install of internal items.
Signarama Dandenong were able to absorb a substantial amount of the workload in developing the wayfinding system, as we had an in-house system we had developed and deployed at other HealthECare facilities.
Materials produced included:
– Brushed stainless steel channel letters with translucent faces for the external signage .
– Illuminated directional monoliths with push through graphics for the external directional signage.
– Custom way finding system
Digital printing was on our HP 380 latex printer, external routed signage was made on the Biesse CNC router.
Strong external illuminated branding and directional signage and clear, comprehensible internal way finding. The job was completed on time and the results look fantastic!
