Main Floor Directory
This is your broad overview of the contents of the building. It should be easy to make cost effective changes, easily expandable, and provide a broad view of the content of the building. Don’t confuse the reader by showing the contents or every room. Consider grouping areas and having the tenants describe their location to their customers.
An example would be Section 7.4 Room 710. On the main directory you may have 7th Floor sections 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4. When they arrive on the 7th floor they see a directional Sections 7.1 and 7.2 to the left and Sections 7.3 and 7.4 to the right. After you walk down the corridor you will see a sign reading 7.4 - 710 Law Offices of Merrick Flinn. Every situation is different. Talk to our consultants to discuss options.
Keep it simple! Directional Signage should be part of a system of critical decision points.
Go from broad to specific. As an example, you enter a building looking for the Family Medical Clinic and Dr. Smith. On the main directory at the entrance you see the Medical Clinic on the third floor. You take the elevator to the third floor where you see a Directional Sign showing room 306 to the left. As you walk down the hall you see a room sign 306 with Dr’s Smith, Mac Donald, and Reid. Your there! In the same situation you may see all of the Dr’s names on a huge main Directory, again when you get to the third floor, and again when you get to the actual office. Keep it simple, most people can think for themselves with a little guidance.
