Signage: RBG Signage

This depressing sight greeted me when I walked up to the Royal Botanical Gardens Building in Burlington.
The last one isn’t so bad, but those other three words.... Did anyone who takes any sort of pride in their work think any of that was acceptable? Did someone who spent 4 years and a huge chunk of money at a college produce this? What did they learn in that time? Kerning obviously wasn’t emphasized. Clearly it’s Frutiger, which has good kerning tables. Was it a cheap knockoff? If that is the case, all the more reason to correct odd, and very glaring gaps before allowing it to be unveiled in public.
