Stainless Steel Statue

The Northampton Science Park was the brainchild of a local businessman who saw the need to offer business premises to local entrepreneurs and small businesses.

The Science Park is ideally located near to potential customers, easily accessible for suppliers and visitors and affordable. It offers a number of units covering 4 buildings with support services such as meeting rooms, reception services and technical assistance all included.

To assist with this exciting new business development, Reldale was commissioned to manufacture, assemble and install a 5 metre high stainless steel double helix shaped statue that was to become the central focal point of the development.

Reldale worked closely with the designers and developers to ensure that every detail was met to ensure that this centre piece was every bit as impressive as the development itself.

The central tube of the structure houses a number of cross support shafts that hold the two seperate spirals precisely in position. It was important that the spirals showed continuity throughout their length to which a number of jigs and fixtures were designed and manufactured to aid the assembly process of the spirals to the cross shafts.

Reldale were more than satisfied with the results of this very interesting and diverse project. More importantly, the customer was satisfied with the end product. This project tested the companies ability to produce free flowing shapes and also introduced new processes that will be adopted in future projects of this nature.
