This involved the strategic reveal of a 175’ w x 30’ h banner from behind the stands of BMO field during the opening ceremonies. We worked with the engineer’s requirements for a high-wind action plan. Ultra-mesh vinyl with air flow allowance was printed, cut and zip tied to soccer netting and then rigged to a 200’ x ½” steel cable. Two 80 ton cranes were used to achieve the lift.
