This project comprises the construction of 328 student accommodation flats, in 3 high rise linked blocks (7 to 12 storeys) on an island site within the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne.
The site was formerly used as a nightclub, part of which remains as site accommodation, and will be redeveloped at a later stage.
The current site accommodation is drab and cheerless, but due to the tight nature of the site, is the only area which can be used.
We have introduced vertical plastic menu holders (similar to those used in café’s and take away food establishments) which are used to display copies of the ‘spotlight on…’ campaign flyers and reduced size Healthy Life posters on the canteen tables.
The information is rotated and changed weekly to keep it varied and current.
This form of display brings the information to the workforce at a time when they are taking their break and at lunch time when they are more likely to read it than on a poster displayed on a notice board they see in passing by and which rapidly becomes “wallpaper”.
The feedback from the operatives has been extremely positive.
