Project Name: Royal Papworth Hospital

Client: Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Trust and Skanska

Sector: Hospitals, healthcare and research

Location: Cambridge Biomedical Campus, Cambridge (UK)

Role: Wayfinding consultancy, sign scheme design, signs manufacture and signs installation.

The Brief: xsign were appointed to provide wayfinding consultancy, sign manufacture and sign installation at the brand new Cambridge Biomedical Campus for Royal Papworth Hospital Trust. Skanska led on the construction of the project and xsign were appointed to lead on the sign package.

Outcome: xsign delivered a suite of internal, wayfinding signs which include frosted acrylic on a dark grey background. The range of sign types included directory wall panels, suspended signs and protruding signs, all digitally printed for excellent resolution and cost efficiency. Externally, xsign provided a set of cut letters which provide striking branding for visitors and staff alike.

During the project, xsign applied their knowledge and expertise of creating wayfinding solutions for healthcare institutions. Wayfinding can be crucial in such settings, often in life or death situations, so clear and legible wayfinding is vital for the success of a hospital environment.
