City Quays Car Park

The brief

This 18 storey car parking facility overlooking Belfast’s prestigious Titanic Quarter needed to have an internal wayfinding solution to not only direct drivers to each level but also had to be as robust as possible while still being aesthetically pleasing.

We developed large 316 grade solid stainless-steel numerals for each floor level as well as floor to ceiling super graphics applied directly onto the internal stairwell walls.

For directional signage, we used folded 4mm aluminium panels, powder coated, and then wrapped in Class RA1 reflective vinyl for complete visibility 24 hours a day. Each panel was then chemically anchored into the solid concrete ceiling on each level.

All of the signage in this facility had to be as vandal-proof as possible and since each level is open to the elements and is situated close to Belfast lough it needed to be manufactured from solid materials which have a high resistance to corrosion.
