The overall objectives for pedestrian signage are to provide attractive wayfinding for safety and convenience. Specific objectives for pedestrian signage are defined below.
Aesthetic and Function: Develop cohesive and informative sign designs that reflect the aesthetic approach of the overall Tyndall AFB rebuild effort.
Design For All: Prioritize safe and accessible walking routes that support the entire Tyndall AFB community.
Local Distinctiveness: Develop a comprehensive signage system that defines and promotes the unique characteristics of Tyndall AFB.
Raise Awareness: Implement a pedestrian-centric signage program to raise pedestrian awareness on the base.
Reflects Innovation: Support the goals and vision of Tyndall AFB’s Installation of the Future strategy.
Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART): Support the use of connected and SMART systems to enhance two-way communications.
Sustainable and Resilient: Incorporate sustainable and resilient designs as well as a creative use of form to mitigate climate-related and geographical challenges.
This pedestrian signage design approach expands on the existing signage criteria and addresses the unique conditions of the multi-modal corridors, and that supports the distinctive pedestrian signage aesthetic of Tyndall AFB. Examples of the signage prototypes are shown in Exhibit C08-1.
For select locations at Tyndall AFB such as the Community Commons, an enhanced Level 2 signage design offers a unique architectural form that is influenced by the UFC standard. The use and construction of a Level 2 sign requires coordination with and approval from Tyndall AFB Civil Engineer Squadron. Level 2 signs are recommended for future developments outside of the base’s mission and operational districts. See Exhibit C08-21 for the area where Level 2 signage would be applicable.
Exhibit C08-21 illustrates approximate locations for the typical Level 1 signs described in this section. Potential locations for Level 2 signage are also shown.
