Some of our recent work . . .
City of Grapevine- Oak Grove Softball Complex
Valley Quest Design was approached the City of Grapevine to help them master-plan the renovation of an aging softball complex. The plan includes replacement of the three existing fields and restroom facility with four brand-new fields and new restroom, concessions, maintenance and batting cage facilities, as well as additional parking. Design for the hardscape, softscape and structures will draw influence from the nearby, world-class baseball complex, which Andrew and Jeremy both worked on while employed elsewhere back in 2007.
Town of Argyle- Branding and Wayfinding Master Plan
Valley Quest joined Dallas-based environmental graphics design firm Focus EGD and branding experts BRIDGE Creative Studios, to provide the Town of Argyle, Texas with a Branding and Wayfinding Master Plan. The master plan addressed the various major TXDOT, Denton County and local thoroughfares traversing the Town and recommended signage and wayfinding elements to allow visitors to recognize the Town, guide them to its major destinations and encourage them to stay. Valley Quest was tasked with the design of landscape and hardscape gateway enhancements as well as developing designs for various monuments, markers and built gateway elements that capture the unique history and culture of the area.
Victory Temple Church
Victory Temple Ministries contacted Valley Quest Design regarding a desire to expand their growing church. They have already outgrown their current accommodations, a cozy little church building on the north side of Fort Worth and are currently meeting in a concert venue close to the Stockyards. They found a property in River Oaks, an old grocery store building, that will allow them to make meet the physical needs of their growing congregation. Valley Quest Design was consulted for recommendations on exterior façade improvements and even on the conceptual layout of the interior space. We are unable to determine who is more proud of this one, the church or our new company. This was our very first project and we are now happy to call Victory Temple Ministries one of our long-term ministry partners.
Leadership Grapevine Commemorative Plaza
Leadership Grapevine approached Valley Quest to design a plaza to commemorate their 25th graduating class. A paved plaza was designed for seating and gathering for workshops and classes. It features abstract shapes and themes from the Leadership Grapevine logo in a clean, modern interpretation. An area for a flag pole and a pedestal with donor engravings was also included. As Grapevine Chamber members, Valley Quest was happy to donate a large portion of the work required to create the concept marketing graphics, construction documents and bid documents to see this project to fruition.
Axis Realty Group Office Courtyard
Axis Realty Group is a leading commercial real estate brokerage in North Texas. They recently purchased and renovated an aging building in Denton's historic downtown right off the square. Valley Quest was tapped to design a small courtyard between the new building and its neighbor to the north. Playing off of the building's new, modern design and providing options to both complement and contrast that- the design team recommended paving, landscaping, decking and vertical treatments to enliven the space and make it functional. The resulting design meets the client's key desires for an outdoor space that functions for business, relaxation and entertainment, as well as solves ADA access, drainage and irrigation needs- all in a small package.
Cross Roads Green Ribbon
Using our principals' extensive experience in transportation enhancement combined with navigating the waters of state funding applications- the Town of Cross Roads, Texas requested our assistance in designing landscape enhancements at three key locations on state roadways within the Town limits. The master plan design was then packaged with cost estimates, project schedules and state forms as an application to the Texas Department of Transportation for an annual allotment of funding referred to as Green Ribbon Funding. This crucial program provides state funds to communities to beautify and improve the environment in TXDOT rights-of-way around the state.
