Novacryl LP Case Study
ASI, CT is a Novacryl Preferred Fabricator and recently redesigned a hospital lobby at Lawrence + Memorial in Connecticut. The project incorporated Novacryl LP photopolymer to enhance the interiors design. Below is a description of the project provide by Sara Myers at ASI, CT.
Lawrence + Memorial, located in New London, CT, is a not-for-profit, general, acute care, private hospital that has been serving this region since 1912. They are licensed for 280 beds and provide patient care to medical, surgical, pediatric, rehab, psychiatric and obstetrical patients.
They are expanding in their community/region and last year completed a lobby renovation project that included new wayfinding and room ID signage in the main hospital lobby. They had toured several other local medical facilities and knew that they wanted a more comfortable, inviting feel to the space for patients, visitors, and staff entering the facility. The committee working on signage included staff from marketing/branding, patient experience, and facilities.
They asked ASI to offer ideas based on the materials and colors they chose. We came up with a design that was based on using a wood laminate product that could be incorporated into ADA-compliant tactile room signs as well as serve as base panels for the directory and directional signs. Our goal was to keep the signage simple and effective, and complementary to the new lobby interior design.
We continue to work with L+M on variations of these signs for other hospital areas and satellite facilities, all using some form of Nova product for tactile signs.
