Palmer Gateway Arch | Frankenmuth, MI

William A. Kibbe & Associates provided architectural and engineering design services for the City of Frankenmuth, Michigan, in the process of constructing a new landmark gateway arch to welcome visitors to the city. The Palmer Gateway Arch, named after the Palmer Foundation that funded the project, is a unique and substantial symbol for the city of Frankenmuth that visitors will pass under upon entering and exiting the city.

BIM was used to orient the structure to the existing topography and site constraints, and to provide drawings and renderings of the design development progress for the city to use to gain public support and funding.
