The university is a mixed-use complex totalling more than 400 acres, split into 3 principal campuses. These encompass accommodation and academic facilities for 45,000 students and 3,000 administrative staff. The site includes a commercial science park, retail outlets, restaurants and a flagship Sports Village located on the East campus.
University of York wanted to ensure that the visitor experience on campus was aligned with its brand positioning and future aspirations. To do this, they recognised that a new wayfinding strategy & design was required.
As part of the strategy development, we liaised with the Estates team to develop initial cost plans for the proposed signage. During the design phase, this cost model was used to examine cost implications of the various design solutions.
