Shop ‘Til you Drop!
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, shopping centres are an alluring and essential part of 21st century living. In the words of the movie ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’, “When I shop, the world gets better, and the world is better, but then it's not, and I need to do it again”.
We have worked closely with many shopping centre operators and builders to ensure that the signage for their retailers not only looks great, but also conforms to the centre’s retail design criteria and guidelines.
Acutely aware of the partnership required when working in Shopping Centres, our team creates a professional result every time, using our experienced craftsmen and great customer service to ensure that works are completed to the highest standard.
Types of Shopping Centre Signage
Over the last 33 years Signs & Lines have undertaken numerous shopping centre retail projects using our design, manufacturing and installation talents in complex and logistically demanding environments. Understanding the challenges of a high foot-fall retail environment, our people are cognisant of the unique ways needed to approach each shopping centre project. Installation of signage during a construction phrase, for example, presents very different challenges from installing signs whilst the shopping centre is fully operational.
Throughout the Case Study you will see examples of the suite of signage we can offer at Shopping Centres, such as:
- Pylon signage – static & digital
- Door signage
- Glazed door signage
- External super graphics
- Carpark signage
- Dynamic signage – digital wayfinding
- External fascia branding signage
- Loading dock signage
- Controlled parking signage
- Internal signage
- Amenities signage
- Lightbox signage
- Awning signs, wall signs
- Window graphics & decals
- Entry / exit signs
- Lift signage & trolley bay6s
Between 2014 - 2017 we completed shopping centre external signage for Lakeside Joondalup, Midland Gate Shopping Centre, Vicinity Centres, Federation Centres and Secret Harbour Shopping Centre in Perth metro – plus other projects in remoter regional centres. For the aforementioned projects we have manufactured and installed complex large and small scale signage works including: entry statements, pylons, digitally printed fascia panels, window graphics, frosting, general statutory signs, external traffic signage, car park signs, tenant sign removal, directory signs, information kiosk signage, snapper frames, escalator signage etc.
For Lend Lease we were contracted to provide signage at the Joondalup Shopping Centre’s expansion for Lend Lease during 2014-2016, with external signage works for Myer, Target and the Shopping Centre branding. This project also included works on digital wayfinding kiosks in the centre. A recent Firm job required us to complete signage works in Port Hedland and our team mobilised from Perth to complete these remote works; similarly we manufactured and installed new Vicinity Centres signage in Karratha.
At Cockburn Shopping Centre in Perth’s southern suburbs we completed a digital signage project supplying five wayfinding kiosks, and at Armadale Shopping Centre we completed internal and external signage at the build stage including exterior fascia signage, mall ceiling suspended signage, emergency evacuation plans, door signage, statutory signage, travelator and CCTV signage, traffic management signs, etc. This works was done in conjunction with the builder and Meyer Shircore Architects.
An Eye into the Future of Shopping Centres
With an estimated $4.5° billion will be invested in Perth shopping centres by 2020, with more than half of it spent expanding shopping complexes to create public places where customers can socialise, eat, be entertained and shop.
The move, which breaks down binary thinking about bricks-and-mortar versus online traders, will result in major shopping centres expanding floor space by more than 50% and integrating online booth and smartphone shopping.
The dynamic of shopping centre visits is definitely changing with food and beverage being a major “pull factor” in luring consumers into shopping centres. More than a third≠ of consumers indicated they would visit a shopping centre just to eat or drink.
Expansion of existing shopping centres seems to be the name of the game with expanding major regional centres into super regional centres (130,000sqm-plus) as the trend making the biggest difference in retail spending growth.
The Final Wrap
The great news for the shopaholic is that there will be more malls, brands, trends, discounts, offers to sets your spirit soaring high… Perth is set for a 24.4% increase in Shopping Centre supply by 2020°.
For those looking to ensure that the lure of the shopping centre is playing its part in attracting visitors, Signs & Lines combination of static and digital signage solutions will ensure that the carparks are full and the visitor will have an outstanding shopping centre experience courtesy of great signage.
