Diagram: Signs (Sample)

Every structure and commercial complex should be designed with a precise concept for adequate signing. Provisions for sign placement, sign scale in relationship with the building, and sign readability should be considered in developing the signing concept. All signing should be highly compatible with the building and site design relative to colour, material and placement.

Monument-type signs are the preferred alternative for business identification whenever possible. Where several tenants occupy the same site, individual wall mounted signs are appropriate in combination with a monument sign identifying the development and address.

The use of backlit individually cut letter signs is strongly encouraged.

Each development site should be appropriately signed to give directions loading and receiving areas, visitor parking and other special areas.
