Creative Designs for a School
The Good Shepherd Nativity Mission School Inc. helps low-income, urban youth realize their fullest potential as productive members of society. The school provides students with an extended-day, year-round quality education. The school’s primary focus is on integrated personal, moral and spiritual development, and continued guidance during each student’s further education.
In May of 2016, land was purchased for the development and design of a new 39,000 square foot school house. A groundbreaking ceremony was held on April 5, 2017, and after almost a year of construction, the new campus opened in August 2018. In addition to the interior and exterior signage for the school, the school requested that ASI provide a Donor Recognition Wall to honor the Donors and Founders of the school. The client required the wall to be installed in preparation for a Dedication Ceremony on September 28, 2018.
About the Solution
The Recognition System consisted of four wall collages. Three walls honored donors to the school. The left and right walls consisted of clear acrylic panels, 18”x18”x 1/4” and 12”x 12x 1/4”, with flat, polished edges. The acrylic panels were covered with second surface digital prints. The center wall consisted of clear acrylic panels, 24”x 24”x 1/4”, with flat polished edges and covered with second surface digital prints. The acrylic panels were mounted using 1” diameter clear anodized caps and 1/2″ deep spacers.
The Founder’s Wall consisted of one wall collage, using 12’ x 84”x 1/4”, 12”x 12”x 1/4” and 24”x 24”x 1/4” clear acrylic panels with flat, polished edges and covered with second surface digital prints. The acrylic panels were mounted using 1” diameter clear anodized caps and 1/2″ deep spacers.
A donor name bar was installed using 2”x 8” ASI InTouch™ flat printed panel, second surface painted and tape mounted to wall under the existing sign.
ASI also provided a 30”x 20” Cast Aluminum Plaque, with one standard color background, satin aluminum finish, stud-mounted to brick and cut acrylic letters, using ASI LPP Series painted one color and tape-mounted to the wall.
