Specialists in architecturally exposed steelwork, Tubecon, were the contractor of choice to fabricate and install two Wayfinding Gantries.
Tubecon has received official BOA (British Olympic Association) Designation and a license under their Supplier Recognition Scheme as: Supplier of Architectural Structural Steelwork (Olympic Park) to the London 2012 games. Particular fabrication skill and precision were required for this exciting project, qualities which Tubecon have the knowledge and expertise to deliver. Tubecon used the latest laser profiling technology on these two overhead Wayfinding Gantries to form the complex cuts required to nest the tubular profiles together with millimetre accuracy. The complex tubular trusses spanned in excess of 30 metres and were located on the London Olympic Park that formed part of the Stratford Gateway, helping to direct visitors to various venues. The structures weighed approximately 16 tonnes each and were dismantled and removed from the Park after the Games.
