Day and Night of The Event

Overall the Event was a huge success with plenty of positive feedback

Transportation To The Viaduct

The Structure was transported on a 6.5 meter long trailer with the use of the buckets to rise it off the floor so the polypropylene wasn't crushed.

Trial Run

With the use of the Hi ab attached at the lowest side of the structure (5 Meters High) and support at the base from our team members we were able to have a successful trial run, with the structure standing just over 8 meters.

Lighting Test

Our chosen Lighting system, a flood light with a blue filter over the top.
Fairy lights which was our original lighting plan fell through due the lights standing out more than the frame work, also the blacks leads that were placed in the structure looked tacky.

Applying Modules

Modules applied to the for sides of our steel frame, with the use of cable ties
