fd2s developed a comprehensive wayfinding master plan for the University of California at San Francisco Medical Center’s Parnassus Heights and Mount Zion sites. Each of these sites include hundreds of thousands of square feet spread throughout several buildings on multiple city blocks, and wayfinding challenges are compounded by the fact that the facilities have been repeatedly expanded and reconfigured.
As part of the implementation of the master plan, fd2s created a wayfinding sign standards manual that document’s UCSF’s “Pathway” Integrated Wayfinding System. Pathway is a coordinated system of wayfinding signs, printed maps, self-service technology tools, training materials, and maintenance processes that is now being implemented throughout the Parnassus Heights and Mount Zion sites.
The system’s wayfinding web site is live at http://pathway.ucsfmedicalcenter.org/.
