Welcoming the Commonwealth Games to Queen Street Station. To celebrate the 2014 Commonwealth Games, TPA were asked to produce and install a bespoke 27 meter long design for Glasgow’s Queen Street station. Our dramatic panel build (we call it a shield) combined Glasgow buildings such as The Glasgow School of Art, Armadillo, City Chambers and Kelvingrove Art Gallery with ‘Games’ sports such as swimming, diving, gymnastics and wrestling. It even included day trip destinations that can be reached from Queen Street station such as the Wallace Monument, Edinburgh Castle and the Falkirk Wheel.
Working to a very tight deadline, TPA’s expertise with rapid production turnaround, from receipt of artwork to delivery and installation of finished product, was crucial to meeting our client’s expectations. And our experience of working within a station environment – being attentive to health and safety, coordinating around night shifts and drawing on the skills of our specialist fitters – ensured a smooth and hassle-free installation.
