Olympic Rings

Tyne Bridge, Newcastle

Installation of fabricated logo

This is one of our proudest Installations, more involved than just Installing the large built up Aluminium Rings.

It involved part of the Bridge closure and Traffic Management.

Weather conditions were bad during the full Installation, and towards the end of the contract we couldn’t complete for a couple of days due to the high winds, which was a worry as the Olympic torch was due in a couple of days and the Installation had to be completed.

The Olympic Rings were 25m wide and 12m high, making them the largest set of metal Olympic Rings in the UK.
