Info-stands for pedestrians
Zurich signposting system - Oerlikon pilot project
Orientation and identification
Signposting outdoor spaces for pedestrians
The need for orientation is growing. Tourism, immigration and commuting all create a high demand for a "readable city". With its new signposting system, the City of Zurich aims to make it easier for visiting pedestrians to find their way. The majority of people in Zurich travel on foot.
The prosperous location of Oerlikon was used as a a pilot : in 2010, 53 signposting stands were put up on 45 sites, starting from Oerlikon station and expanding in all directions.
If the signposting system proves effective, it will be implemented throughout the entire city in future.
Development: Working group KomPass; Project lead: Werner Egli, Signage designer Zürich; Graphic design: Werner Egli, Zürich
The entire service chain under control
Prototype construction, series production, installation
In the call for tenders for the pilot project, a partner was required who could scale the low-volume production of the pilot phase to produce an attractive cost-benefit ratio in a short period of time. BURRI's long term economic offer and its long-standing experience with such complex projects, BURRI was ultimately awarded the contract. Thanks to its many years of experience with the complex requirements of public spaces, BURRI could provide assurances that usability, operational reliability, environmental compatibility and durability would be maintained throughout the entire life cycle. Increasing requirements for system safety are taken into account, as is the full implementation of the law on equality for disabled persons. Profitability is always the result of all these factors.
