This pedestrian signage plan provides guidance on wayfinding components within the designated Multi-Modal Spine and shared-use path networks for the rebuild and reconstruction of Tyndall Air Force Base (AFB).
Assorted sign types are used on Tyndall AFB to provide direction, information, traffic control, and facility identification. Most of these signs were built and installed in accordance to the Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) sign standards; however, many designs do not conform with current criteria. This Landscape Master Plan and pedestrian signage section provide an opportunity to create a unified aesthetic for the pedestrian signage used throughout the base.
Commercial Tenant & Marquee Signs
Various non-military commercial tenants with new and legacy facilities are located throughout Tyndall AFB. Signs are unregulated and fall outside UFC 3-120-01, Design: Sign Standards. This pedestrian sign plan provides tenants with additional guidance to achieve consistency in sign design. Design and construction of all commercial tenant signs, whether part of the Facility Sustainment, Restoration, and Maintenance program or MILCON program, will be coordinated with the Tyndall AFB Civil Engineer Squadron.
The technical requirements for the pedestrian signage on Tyndall AFB are governed by UFC 3-120-01, Design: Sign Standards, and the IFS. Both documents provide specific guidance regarding sign dimensions, design colors, and placement.
This signage plan expands on the requirements of the UFC and the IFS to provide additional sustainability and resiliency guidance for the signage installed on Tyndall AFB.
This document applies to signage proposed or implemented for pedestrian wayfinding and mobility. The included design guidance provides specific requirements to achieve functional and aesthetic consideration.
Coordination of design and construction with Tyndall AFB staff, agencies, service providers and third-party contractors is critical to the successful implementation of planned improvements. All work is required to be warrantied regarding location and installation of materials in a manner consistent with the intent of the Landscape Master Plan and IFS, and to not create a conflict for installation of adjacent improvements by others. All potential conflicts will be identified by designers/contractors in respective sections of the Compliance Checklist and reviewed by Tyndall AFB Staff.
