Jones Sign was contracted to manufacture and install six high-profile internally illuminated logo badges surrounding the stadium bowl. Each badge sign measured 36' in diameter and was 54' long. We also manufactured and installed two supersized specialty fabrication 3D electrical guitars, measuring 32' tall each, in an "X" pattern over freestanding entry.
The biggest challenge to this project was the tight timeline. The massive logos had to be installed in time for the first Miami Dolphins game of the season. This gave us six weeks to complete the project from start to finish. Another challenge was managing the site logistics of the finished stadium during installation.
Given the timeline, the decision was made to undertake design and fabrication simultaneously. Jones self-performed installation both to ensure installation safety and quality and to meet the deadline. The installation team used a 600-ton, 300’ lifting jig to install the interior badges from the outside.
The Miami Dolphins Hard Rock Stadium project is evidence of Jones' reliability and horsepower to complete a package in only six weeks. Our ability to design and fabricate at the same time and strategize an installation plan that would work in a finished stadium setting was instrumental to the success of this project.
