MCB Pylon in Mauritius

The magnificent Mauritius Commercial Bank pylon was recently installed at the new MCB Ebene Building outside Port Louis in Mauritius.

The pylon measures 7m wide by 5m high, and has a rather complex shape. On top of that, the client required very small gaps between the three different sections of the sign.

 From date of order to final installation in Mauritius took 12 weeks, including 4 weeks spent on design, 6 weeks on manufacture, and 2 weeks on shipping and installation.
