We have developed a relationship over the past 5 years with ACTS Retirement-Life Communities and the folks within their construction department. This led to us being involved in multiple renovation projects throughout North and South Carolina. In each case we have provided consultation, design, manufacturing and installation services.
The Village at Plantation Estates was no different, although the scope for this one was quite large. We started with initial meetings with the general contractor and end users within ACTS, during the land development and early construction phases to make sure we provided all of the signage that they would need for inspections at each building, 18 total, (7 apartment buildings, 10 villas and 1 Clubhouse).
RP Signs then played an integral role in designing a signage program that would complement the architecture of the buildings, incorporate the color schemes as well as design eye catching signage that would communicate messages and would guide residents and visitors effectively. With this came monument signs, wayfinding signage, apartment and villa signage that assigned each building a name and number along with ADA compliant interior signage for each resident and support rooms. Letter sets were included to mark key destinations within the facility to provide easy wayfinding. For installation, we developed coded floor plans and sign drawings with numbers and tags to make the installation as easy as possible on our crews as we moved from one building to the next.
RP Signs was brought on-board for the project in March of 2016 and dedicated a project manager to it until it’s substantial completion in January of 2018.
