Watauga Wayfinding Sign Foundation
Areté Engineers provided design services for forty one (41) proposed sign structures consisting of up to four (4) different sign types. Signs to be installed across Watauga County to give directions to different points of interest within the county. Drafting and visual design completed by Destination by Design. Structural design includes: thickness of main vertical post, design of horizontal members, design of connections, and footing/foundation design.
We worked with the manufacturer to switch the main vertical post from steel to aluminum. We inspected the foundation holes and rebar to ensure proper installation.
