We construct hundreds of projects each year across Australia. Consistent presentation of quality signage on all of Hutchies' projects enhances our image and is important for our reputation as Australia’s best builder.
All Hutchies’ sites are to display professional signage, taking full advantage of the positive marketing impact and effectively communicating positive messages and information with people who are on our site or nearby relating to safety and the works. We are always open to fresh ideas on how we can make our signage stand out - check out our illuminated examples below for example.
This signage guide provides information to teams on Hutchies’ expectations. Understandably, each site is unique in its requirements and the following package is intended to cover the majority of situations. We encourage all ideas to be shared for review.
All sites are to develop a Signage Plan prior to commencement on site. This plan should detail specifically which signage will be used on site, its location and implementation and can form part of the wider Construction Management Plan.
The Signage Plan is to contain, at a minimum:
- Signage types
- Signage sizes
- Signage locations
- Signage staging plan / implementation
It is the sole responsibility of Team Leaders to ensure their respective projects and sites meet Hutchies’ signage requirements.
Keep it simple and take the less is more approach. Too much signage looks unprofessional and overbearing, whereas too little or poorly presented signage looks ordinary.
Some signage requirements are compulsory – such as health & safety and the licensing authority requirements relevant to each state and territory or even councils. Hutchies’ signage policy is all about presenting a good image.
