The interior phase of the new USFSM Labs at Mote Marine has been completed with the installation of the signature Logo Wall. Having completed the finishing touches on the interior build out of the approximately 4,000 square foot project with the installation of ADA signs for two teaching labs, a preparation lab and an additional mixed-use space earlier this summer, all that remained was the Logo Wall.
Designed by Fawley Bryant Architects as a focal point for the 6′-8″ x 18′-6″ northeast wall of the mixed-use space Gulf Coast Signs this week installed Bellagard Sculpted Wall panels manufactured by the Korogard Interior Products Group that invoke a rippling water feel and serves as a backdrop for a large truncated university seal and USFSM copy. We fabricated the seal and copy by laser cutting ½” Acriglas® Metallic Bronze acrylic. The seal was completed by bonding the many pieces to a ½” clear acrylic substrate. The seal and copy were then field installed with blind 1″ standoffs through the sculpted panels with construction adhesive.
The results are a prominent floating bronze seal and copy on a shimmering wall that immediately identifies this new facility to all who enter.
