Waverley Station, Edinburgh

How the wayfinding was planned and the signing delivered

A talk by Stuart Dodds and Maria Pether

Thursday 2nd October 2014 at The Gallery at 6.30pm

In the first six months of this year, Merson Sign Design (MSD) and Merson Signs completed the wayfinding planning, manufacture and installation of new campus-wide signing at Waverley Station, Edinburgh as part of ongoing redevelopment of this major rail interchange at Scotland's capital.

In this talk Maria Pether will outline the wayfinding issues faced when dealing with platforms laid out in a clockface format and how a strategy for the new signing system was created. Stuart Dodds will then explain how the Project Delivery Team was established and describe the process they followed for the construction design, manufacture and installation of the signage.

This project followed several other rail signing projects undertaken by Merson in recent times including Blackfriars, King’s Cross, Cannon Street in London and the network wide re-brand for South-West Trains. Merson are framework suppliers to TfL and have a Project Team continuously delivering signage for Train Operating Companies on a daily basis UK wide. Merson have also just been appointed to complete construction design, manufacture and installation of the signage at the London Bridge Redevelopment Project./p>

Based at Chessington in Surrey, Stuart is the Southern Operations Director at Merson Signs and Maria is the Wayfinding Design Manager at MSD. Merson Signs are long-time corporate members of the Sign Design Society.
