Managed and maintained by Gwynedd Council, Caernarfon is home to possibly the most famous of Wales's castles. Established in 1283, Caernarfon was constructed as a military stronghold and as a seat of government and royal palace.
A famous and historic place, Caernarfon is credited with bringing history to life and is home to the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, Wales's oldest regiment.
To safeguard the future Caernarfon town centre, Gwynedd Council sought to collaborate with a creative sign and design company in the design and implementation of a new Caernarfon Signage and Orientation Strategy. The end result would strengthen links between a multi-million pound commercial development on the edge of town, the town centre, and the Victoria Dock quarter. The project would involve the design, production and erection of a combination of signage infrastructure, including directional fingerposts, information panels, and lockable information cabinets. The chosen solution would combine historic heritage with modern yet functional design, to successfully forge the desired linkages.
Fitzpatrick Woolmer, after comprehensive discussions with Gwynedd Council, proposed a signage and orientation strategy in-line with the Council’s objectives for the town and its visitors.
The physical solution delivered, involved a range of signage displays and interpretive panels including: single and double-sided information displays, combination units and locking notice boards, all incorporating a mix of single and double-sided header boards. Fingerposts were designed with double- sided arms and custom finials were deployed throughout.
Using its vast experience of similar large-scale projects Fitzpatrick Woolmer was able to quickly grasp the scope of the project and deliver a high quality solution, whilst maintaining excellent service levels.
