Glass donor plaques, stainless steel letters, and LED lighting provide a unique donor wall for The Commonwealth Medical College.
TCMC was established through the grassroots efforts of visionary individuals who understood what a community based medical school would bring to a region – and worked to make it a reality. Their goal was to provide more physicians and improved healthcare resources for the people of northeastern Pennsylvania.
To show appreciate and gratitude to the donors whose funding made TCMC a reality, a donor wall was erected in the main lobby of the building. Impact Architectural Signs, working under Quandel Group, TCMC’s General Contractor, designed, produced, and installed a series of etched glass plaques on the donor wall, serving as a monument to the generous donors.
Each glass panel, representing various levels of donations, was sandblasted on the reverse side, and installed with stainless steel stand offs. In the center of the donor wall is a the college name, and thank you message in brushed stainless steel letters. The donor wall also serves as an inspiration to future donors. The wallcovering is a glass bead texture, and when lighting from underneath hits it, the glass beads produce a unique lighting effect. LED lighting from the top and sides also serve to illuminate the etched names in the glass plaques.
