RFP: Wayfinding Sign System; City of Spartanburg, SC

City of Spartanburg - Economic Development

Submittal Deadline: November 27, 2007

The City of Spartanburg, in the center of the booming Upstate of South Carolina, has a population of approximately 40,000. The City serves as the urban core for over a quarter million people, and is experiencing a renewed civic momentum accompanied by significant private and public investments. Spartanburg offers a supportive corporate environment, an eclectic cultural life, six colleges, and two nationally-recognized healthcare institutions with state-of-the-art facilities and technology.

Currently, the city has no comprehensive wayfinding system. A consulting firm was retained by the city in 2004 to develop a vehicular wayfinding program. The firm worked with a local task group, and submitted design concepts for trailblazer, gateways and proximity signage, as well as a programming map for recommended sign locations and a sign schedule. Since that time the community has undergone many changes, including the completion of new major venues and a reevaluation of the marketing image of the city. While there is substantial programmatic work complete, some additional work is required to update the number of destinations and locations of signs. Additionally, the city is interested in revisiting the design aspect of the project to develop a design that is more reflective of the current character of the community.
