Design-Build Series Part 1: Introduction
Wed, 27 Apr 2016
The Design-Build process with regard to signage is a unique process to deliver a highly professional consultative and creative service consisting of logical, sequential steps to analyze, plan, design, specify, document, implement and maintain identity and wayfinding signage solutions that meet client expectation for interior and exterior signage solutions.
Your facility’s wayfinding system is an essential component of your image and a direct reflection on your facility’s operations. An effective signage program creates such a system which moves people efficiently, minimizes confusion, improves perceptions of your facility, your brand and ultimately makes everyone’s job easier — including yours.
ASI | Design-Build Services is a proven methodology for achieving such a signage program in the most effective and economical way. Progressive corporations, real estate developers and management organizations around the country, have used ASI | Design Build Services to realize immediate gains in efficiency in terms of schedule, traffic circulation, design, planning and implementation processes while also achieving cost savings.
The hallmark of the Design-Build process is the single source capabilities to deliver comprehensive circulation and codes analysis, planning and design development and documentation as well as an integral implementation process for your facility’s signage program. Customized to meet your specific project objectives, the Design-Build process utilizes the analysis of your circulation patterns and code requirements to produce professionally documented program planning and establish detailed design and construction specifications used to implement every sign type needed in your facility. Ultimately reducing project schedules, sets the quality standards, establishes and holds budgets, facilitates smooth program implementation, simplifies system maintenance, and improves reordering and maintenance of your program through our On Line Ordering technology.
