In the new Auckland City Hospital, expansive glazing, landscaping and colour provide natural light and a visual connection to the outdoors



Hospitals are often busy, high-pressure environments so an effective signage system to enable visitors, patients and staff to easily find their way around is essential.

DeNeefe Signing Systems designed, manufactured and installed a total signage system for the new Auckland City Hospital. This included internal, external and traffic control way-finding systems.

The company's brief was to create a user-related, user-friendly signage system. It was also important that the signs be vandalism-resistant and able to be changed in the future. To meet these objectives, DeNeefe worked closely with Fletcher Construction and the project team. Critical evaluation was needed to establish cost-effective solutions that would not compromise quality.

All the signs feature an interchangeable slat system in brushed anodised aluminium so information can be easily swapped or replaced. The signage is protected by a sheet of polycarbonate specially treated for solvent resistancy. All door signs are also protected against abrasion and cleaning chemicals.
