DEVELOP AND REFINE
SUMMER 2016 I IN HOUSE ART PROJECT ” The Deserted Island!”
Every so often Arch needs to let loose a little, give back to our creative community and find a pet project to unleash our creativity and passion for art.
This year, the Arch team designed, fabricated and executed a super fun idea, The deserted island!
This floating deck features, custom steel “palm trees”, rocks with a sound system and lights hidden inside and a treasure chest full of all the things one could want with them while stranded alone at sea.We covered it with sand and it’s a pretty believable fun and interactive instillation. This project was built for the Gratitude Migration Arts Festival where it became the highlight of the water area! Now that it’s in the Arch arsenal of fun toys, you can have it at your event too!

Q: Why choose Arch?
A: To be honest, we’re not the cheapest firm out there, but we’re definitely not the most expensive either. What we are is hungry, dedicated, intelligent, and ready to work. We want to make a difference in this industry and we want to be proud of our work. We hold ourselves to a standard of “would we hire us?” and our answer is yes.
Q. What is your lead time?
A: We like as much time possible to thoroughly work through a job. That being said, this industry is usually in a rush! We require at least a 2 week lead time before rush charges apply to the pricing of a project.
Q: Is my project too small?
A: We understand that every project is not a blockbuster, but we do have needs to operate our team. A budget of $5,000 is a great starting point for our process. We will consider smaller projects at times, so don’t hesitate to ask.
Q: Do We Recycle Our Builds?
A: We do our best to recycle, upcycle and reuse as much material as possible. There are disposal fees for projects that have a one-time use and require disassembly and removal. We steward clients to use green products for building when possible, choose rental items instead of one-of-a-kind builds, and to take responsibility for the items that they wish to create.
