During the Second World War, the hospital was developed as a specialist burns unit and became world-famous for the pioneering development of plastic surgery.
Working closely with the Trust’s project managers Wayfinder UK, Allsigns produced a timetable for the removal and disposal of all existing signage, whilst planning the installation of the new. This was to help maintain continuity of wayfinding information for patients, visitors, and staff.
Our project manager and the installation team worked closely with the hospital estates personnel to ensure that the safety of everyone using the hospital was of paramount importance whilst the old signage was being removed and the new installed.
Allsigns successfully delivered the Queen Victoria Hospital project within budget, to very high quality, and to the client’s specified timeline.
“In our role as the Trust’s project managers it was our responsibility to make sure all the Trust’s requirements were delivered to the highest standards. This involved working closely with Allsigns throughout the preparation phase and entire installation process.
During this time, we found them to be a highly competent organisation. Everyone we met or had contact with had a clearly defined role, possessed first-rate communication skills, and strong attention to detail. We found them to be highly responsive and flexible and their work to be both clean and considerate. In addition to this we found their obvious experience to be extremely valuable when overcoming the challenges of working in a busy, fully operational hospital environment.
All of this ensured the work was very well planned and completed to a very high standard, within the time allocated and exactly to budget.”
