RPS is an industry leader in the development, design and delivery of wayfinding strategies and directional signage solutions for infrastructural projects. We have unrivalled experience on both large and small scale wayfinding projects, including pedestrian and cycling schemes, major and minor road projects, junction upgrades, urban centre schemes, tourist driving routes, public transport schemes, airports and ports, university and health campuses, industrial and commercial projects and parking facilities.
RPS provided a comprehensive traffic sign design consultancy service for the €60m re-signing programme for over 2,500km of the national road network in Ireland.
We were responsible for project, cost and programme management, national signage policy input, market research, co-ordination of signage development and detailed design. We also prepared contracts, managed procurement, contract administration and construction supervision, and provided health and safety services as Project Supervisor for the Design Process (PSDP).
The project also involved liaison and consultation with the NRA, 26 local authorities, state agencies, stakeholders, interest groups, political representatives, members of the public, other design organisations, and civil works and specialist contractors.
As part of this project, RPS has developed and implemented re-signing schemes across many of the country's most prominent national routes. We have also developed and designed the Wild Atlantic Way Signage Project along Ireland’s west coast, which is one of the longest defined and signed tourist driving routes in the world at approximately 2,500 km in length.
