Gaelite makes a point by producing the tallest sign in Ireland

The tallest sign in Ireland has been erected in Dublin’s Point Village Shopping Centre by local company Gealite...

The Point Village Shopping Centre is part of a multi-million euro development in the docklands area of Dublin.

Comprising a Hotel, Shopping Centre and Office space focussed on the media industry, proves that this is a vibrant and exciting prospect for Dublin creating new jobs and boosting the economy.

As part of the development of the shopping area, Gaelite was approached by the Internationally renowned architects ‘Scott Tallon Walker’ to produce a sign that will be sure to catch peoples attention – a 15 metre tall totem making it the tallest free standing sign in Ireland!

Construction and installation of such a large sign requires thorough planning both for production and logistics, not to mention it passing the scrutiny of local authority planning approval.

With the green light given to the project, the team at Gaelite excelled themselves in creating and delivering this monumental landmark sign on time and on budget – much to the delight of the client.

It took a team of 10 men to install with a tandem lift of two cranes and a hiab loader crane with qualified banksman and a traffic management company to erect it.

“The goal was to make a totem sign of elegant proportions that would act as an Urban Marker for the Point Village Development. The completed design that we developed with Gaelite delivers a carefully detailed sign with a slender structure while maintaining the flexibility to accommodate change over time.” said Ronan Phelan of Scott Tallon Walker Architects

Employing a team of 75 people, Gaelite operates from a state of the art 30,000 sq ft premises in Sandyford, Co. Dublin and a 20,000 sq ft factory in Clondalkin.
