This intricate pattern was made of 500 of the HB logos with each of these individually welded from 6 pieces of 1/2” x 1/2” solid square steel stock. Each of these were then manipulated in a 90 degree rotational pattern in 3 different layers to create the screen.The most challenging part of this project was the assembly of this complex pattern. A full scale printed template was created to translate the pattern for assembly. Each layer had a different color code to guide the team.
The overall arched entrance screen was 80 feet wide by 8 feet high and complied with all the stringent ADA regulations.
