City of Glasgow College Signs – A Landmark Project, Article 2

June 1, 2015

Our landmark City of Glasgow College project has now reached a major milestone point. The manufacturing of the 16 metre long external roof signs has been completed and we are now preparing for installation.

The sheer scale of these signs, along with the location and environment they must survive has thrown up many design and manufacturing challenges that we, as a team, have enjoyed tackling. However, the process of installing them and their galvanised steel framework brings a fresh set of challenges.

The 16m by 1.5m external roof signs, that weigh 1.4 tonnes each, are soon to be installed on the roof of the 45 metre high Riverside Campus building, located in the Gorbals area of Glasgow. This will be both a momentous and Impressive occasion that we will be sure to record and publish.

Here is some of the manufacturing work that has been carried out over the past few weeks:

  • "First class job done by all the team at Centurion after the recent install of our Princess Royal Event Centre Large format backdrop and signage panels. The weather was very challenging on the day of install but the finish was outstanding and I speak for all at Ayr Racecourse in saying thank you!"
