J.G.B Steelcraft (UK) Limited’s Commonwealth Entry “The Big G…”

The Big G… that’s the affectionate name that was given to the spectacular installation in Glasgow’s George Square. The laser cutting for this magnificent structure took place here at J.G.B Steelcraft (UK) Limited on behalf of JP Fabrications & Design Limited who constructed this landmark. We were also asked to be on call for a 2 week period during the games to repair it should any accidental damage occur. This gigantic, three-dimensional structure was designed to reflect the Games logo and is taller than a double decker bus, measuring a whopping 5.5m (18-feet) in height by 10.2m (33.5-feet) in circumference. At four tonnes, it also weighs the equivalent of an African elephant.
