Standing at an impressive 21 meters, this newly modified pylon is a testament to engineering prowess and innovative design.

Located in Townsville, this towering structure demanded precise craftsmanship and strategic planning to ensure a seamless integration with the existing pylon. With sleek lines, high-quality materials, and a commanding presence, this pylon stands as a landmark, visible from afar and poised to serve its purpose with reliability and style.

Challenge

Modifying an existing pylon to a 21m high structure with complex logistics

The main challenge was to modify the existing on-site pylon to achieve a towering height of 21 meters. This required meticulous planning, precision engineering, and overcoming significant logistical hurdles.

Creating 20 different sections in our Brisbane warehouse and shipping them to Townsville was a complex process. Each section needed to be perfectly crafted and transported safely. On-site, maneuvering 30 tons of materials into place using a 100-ton crane presented its own set of challenges. Moreover, 100 sheets of cladding needed to be meticulously assembled on site to achieve the desired result. Additionally, we were tasked with manufacturing two new large 12m pylons.

Planning

We are extremely proud of the finished result. The successful completion of this project was no accident; it was the result of extensive planning and careful consideration.

Positioning, design finishes, and materials were all meticulously planned and coordinated through our construction design department. Every detail was scrutinised to ensure the final product would be both timeless and practical.

Solution

Client Testimonial

" We’re blown away by the signage it looks phenomenal.

For us this has been a 4 year journey that stalled multiple times for various reasons, since our meeting late last year onsite Signsite have exceeded our delivery expectations and closed it out well.

Thanks for your efforts personally to support / assist us to deliver this for the asset, tenants and customers. "
