When it was time to re-brand the home of the Seattle Mariners from to Safeco Field to T-Mobile Park, Jones was selected to complete the engineering, fabricating, and installing the two most complex components of the signage scope: the rooftop illuminated letters and the iconic left field clock tower and sign.
This project had a very tight timeline of just 10 weeks from bid award to installation. It required quick action on our part. The iconic left field clock tower with neon tubing and working analog hands were especially delicate pieces that would require extra care and attention during installation.
Jones immediately deployed a team to survey the location and site conditions. We used our Faro laser scanner to gather fast and exact measurements in three dimensions. This strategy enabled us to quickly and accurately compile engineered construction drawings. Those drawings were sent to the fabrication team along with three-dimensional images for reference. The team was able to quickly move the signs through production using this detailed information.
We used modular construction to fabricate and ship the fully-assembled sign components and delicate clock tower elements. This allowed our installers to protect the integrity of the clocktower components, complete their work on-site quickly, and use less space on the project site.
Jones' contribution to the T-Mobile Park rebranding project was completed with more than a week to spare before the Mariners were scheduled to open the 2019 Season in their newly branded ballpark.
