These arches were created by Franko Design and staff of the FD affiliate divisions. They are produced and installed by Building Impressions and US Signcrafters.
Vista Academy is located in Red Bluff, California. William McCoy is the Superintendent. They underwent a complete school make-over in 2012-2013 and a new arch was a primary component.
“For me, an archway is a formal entrance. We were seeking a symbolic new entrance to the school, and an arch seemed most appropriate. Through the design process, your team was incredibly responsive and understood the importance of this new branding and re-visioning effort. We are incredibly pleased with the result, and feel that the arch sets the correct tone for each individual that goes under it each day. The climate and culture of the school are greatly improved, and I firmly believe that the new signage, paint, logos, and arch are pivotal to that cultural shift. The arch is a symbolic commitment that our school is different, and we have high expectations.” – William McCoy
The Queen of Peace Catholic Church finished off their new sports fields with an arch titled Fathers’ Fields.
“Queen of Peace Parish started a year ago to develop athletic fields on our campus. The layout of the grounds gave us the ability to have soccer, baseball, basketball, and general open areas amidst the aquaponics and outdoor education area. The main entry to these areas included a concrete walkway and brick extension. Our vision was to have a striking gateway into these areas. You and your staff gave us options from our ideas and renderings to secure the deal. Queen of Peace is extremely thankful for your great design and professionalism throughout the entire process.” – Mike Nate, Facilities Manager
