Signage project 2

Signage project 2

What are the changes in 2016?

Campus Map and DirectoriesNew pole street signs for Macquarie University

The Campus Maps and Directories displayed around Macquarie will be updated to reflect the existing three digit building code, the new street address and any relevant building names (e.g. Macquarie Theatre). From 2017, the directory boards will be replaced by information hubs.

Street Signs 

Additional streets signs will be installed from February 2016. Any existing street signage will be replaced from 2017, and additional directional vehicle signage will also be installed.

Building Signs New directional vehicle hub sign for Macquarie University

Current building signs - three digit codes plus building names where relevant - will remain in place during 2016 to assist in the transition. They will begin to be replaced with the new addresses from 2017.

Wayfinding Hurdle Signs

The current hurdle signs outside buildings, which provide information about the occupants of that building, will be replaced from February 2016.

Parking Signs

The existing parking signs will be updated from February 2016 with new cark park references (e.g. West 3-5), and new totems will be installed at each location. Additional row/level and bay signage will be installed from 2017, which will include parking capacity signposts.

Internal Building Directories

Temporary signage will be installed over existing building directories to include the new building address from February 2016. As buildings undergo major refurbishments, such as is happening in E7A 2015-2016, new internal signage will be installed throughout the building, replacing the old signs and directories. The way rooms and floors are numbered will change as refurbishments occur, creating a consistent room and level numbering standard across the campus.

Room numbers

Room numbers will not change in 2016; they will be changed building by building in the case of major refurbishment. As part of the refurbishment, new internal signage will be installed throughout the building, replacing the old signs and directories. The way rooms and floors are numbered will change as refurbishments occur, creating a consistent room and level numbering standard across the campus.

 

What will my new building address be?

From 2016, buildings will use both identifying conventions until the completion of the project.

How should I refer to my address for visitors or deliveries?

Here are some examples of the types of address references for you to use. If you would like further assistance in this matter, please contact Property (ext. 7145 or via email).

It is common for wayfinding journeys to start well before a user sets foot on campus. Advising the user best entry point and car parking will aid their travels.

The use of the precincts and best gates will direct traffic to the most accessible gate to your destination.

What address do I give in an emergency?

In all emergencies, please contact Security on ext 9999. For the first stage of the project during 2016, the current building number will remain in place and can still be used to assist with directions.

What will the new Campus Map look like?

The new Campus Map is still in DRAFT, however is available for you to view, both the DRAFT Map and the DRAFT Location Guide.  Once final approval has been received, this Map will replace the existing Campus Map on the website.

Where can I get copies of the new map?

Once it has final approval, the new map will be available on the Macquarie University website or in hard copy by arrangement with Property Customer Service (9850 7145)

Will room numbers change?

Room numbering for meeting rooms, offices, laboratories, lecture theatres and tutorial rooms, and any other internal signage, will not change as part of the first stage of this project. Internal wayfinding signage, which includes room numbers, will be upgraded during major building refurbishments, such as the current building project in E7A.

Will my contact information be changed in the Staff Directory?

Macquarie website administrators will be systematically updating all references to building addresses from February 2016, including the Staff Directory. If you notice any errors or omissions as this takes place, please contact the administrator for your Department/office.

Will my contact details on the university website get updated?

Macquarie website administrators will be systematically updating all references to building addresses from February 2016. If you notice any errors or omissions as this takes place, please contact the administrator or person responsible for your web pages for your Department/office.

Do I need to change my business cards?

Most Macquarie business cards follow the standard template, which does not contain an address field, so does not need to be changed. If you do opt to include your office address on your business cards, just update to your new street address once your current supply has been exhausted - no need to order new ones until you have used all your current cards.
