phases. "The first was to pour the concrete and install the
bracing that would secure the paddle boat," Moore said.
"The second phase was to install the paddle boat and the
archway." Delegating and dividing the installation kept the
project unrushed, to allow the best possible outcome. DBS
worked closely with the GC that was pouring the concrete,
as well as fabricating the pillars on which the shop's install
team would attach the archway. The concrete had to be
poured first with steel stanchions in place. Once the concrete
was set and dry, the boat was sleeved over the stanchions
and secured in place. "Same with the sign," Moore said.
She credits great communication among the contractors
for the accuracy.
For the arch itself, the signface cabinet featured flat-cut
scrollwork and letters attached to stand-offs, finished
in historical colors and carefully mounted between two
pre-engineered masonry and stonework columns, and
also a flat-cut aluminum sheet and tube finished with
Matthews Paint's acrylic polyurethane. DBS used their
MultiCam 3000 router, SAi's FlexiSign and EnRoute software,
RAS metal break form, Accurshear metal shear, JIH-24 D
cut-off saw and Roland SOLJET vinyl digital printer/cutter
for the fabrication. Everything was mechanically anchored
into pre-engineered masonry columns.
The vintage steamboat required considerable time to
create precise tool paths for its routing. The construction
materials and process used were similar to the arch, also
requiring the flat-cut aluminum sheet, tube and pipe

with a Matthews Paint finish. However, this attachment
necessitated a different anchor from the arch, Moore
said, so it was core-drilled and chemically anchored into
the concrete base. Chemical anchoring is a technique for
fastening to concrete and similar substrates that provides
more flexibility than mechanical anchoring. A resin is
applied into the concrete hole prior to the placement of
the stud. The chemical naturally fills in the gaps in the
hole, making it airtight and waterproof.
As for trends in monument signs, "We are beginning to
see more requests for sustainable signage materials such
as solar illumination for signs," Moore said. "Clients want a
durable product while minimizing their carbon footprint."
With monument signs of the near future, she sees the
industry moving into a more environmentally friendly place.
FOLLOW THAT SIGN
For a well-established childcare center, a sign that is
noticeable to both children and adults can draw in future
students and create an atmosphere filled with fond memories
for alumni. When New Horizon Academy (headquartered
in Plymouth, MN), opened a new location in Broomfield, CO,
they needed a new monument sign. The company reached
out to YESCO (Denver) to replicate the existing design.
New Horizon Academy has specialized in childcare
for over 45 years. Originally founded by Sue Dunkley,
the family-owned company has flourished across
multiple states for decades. Dunkley's first student and
