Princess Alice Hospice

Princess Alice Hospice Charity provides end of life care to adult patients, support for their families and friends free of charge, with over 30 shops across Surrey, South West London and Middlesex; engaged Complete Signs in September’11 to survey the entire estate and establish a refurbishment program from shop front to front counter.

The Complete Signs Solution

In less than seven days Complete Signs surveyed 34 Princess Alice Hospice’s retail shops and delivered a comprehensive design brief including a generous discount donation reflecting the charitable status. The brief addressed a complete shops refurbishment and provided Princess Alice with a Brand Identity Guide achieving consistency across all retail outlets. A key requirement was to maintain the exact background colour on all powder coated metal as this was an essential element in the original shop design.

By late November’11 the pilot shop achieved a contemporary look & feel, proving concept giving way to the full refurbishment program.

Implementation process included:

  • Recycling old signs to help save costs & reducing carbon footprint wherever possible
  • External fascia signs “makeover” using existing signs panels removing old graphics & “wrapping“ with digital print graphics
  • Supply & install temporary banner signs while works carried out – ensuring ‘business as usual’
  • Replacing old wooden fascia sign boards, plastering & painting exterior walls, window frames, doors, soffits & interior walls
  • Removal of Projection signs, not required, render & paint restoring wall area
  • Complete refurbishment of front counter areas, supplying aluminium fabricated trays sections, powder coated & supplied with vinyl graphic decals to corporate design
  • Window graphic decals removed & replaced throughout
  • New wire window signage displays installed
  • Design and installation of branded aluminium statement notice boards
  • Ethical disposal of all waste
