Booking temporary way-finding signage
Staff can book a set of temporary directional signage for use at major events on campus. The set contains 17 signs and A-frames and is owned and managed by Marketing and Communications. Each A-frame is numbered and has a set campus location and the sign within the frame points to nearby buildings. See Temporary signage policy for the map of locations and the information on each sign.
The signs within the frames are not to be removed or changed by any member of staff apart from members of staff within Marketing and Communications and only if a sign needs to be replaced.
Staff can book the number of A-frames required by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. After receiving an email booking confirmation for the frames, staff need to then: - either book the porters to take out and put away the signs - or contact security to gain access to the store if porter support is not available/ possible. Booking the porters and contacting security is the responsibility of the event organiser and not the responsibility of the Marketing and Communications team.
Staff booking the A-frames have full responsibility for the A-frames for the whole of the booking period until they are returned to and secure in the store. It is recommended that the frames are stored inside overnight to avoid damage, loss or theft. If there is a chance of inclement weather, staff must store the frames inside overnight. If the frames are not returned on schedule, lost, stolen or damaged on return, an internal charge will be made to the team who booked the frames to cover the cost of replacement. The replacement cost is £120 per frame including the sign.
