Our onsite Fabrication Team have installed the Date Plaques to the North and South Abutment entrances on the Queensferry Crossing.

Numbers for the 3.5m x 1.5m plaques, were designed on 3D Solidworks, cut with our Swift Cut 3000 Plasma Table and will be our highest profile application of this capability to date. While perhaps a very small piece of the project endeavour, the Plaque installation marks a significant symbolic milestone towards the completion of this iconic engineering undertaking.
Andy O’Kane of FCBC commented:-
“These stainless steel plaques have been fabricated with great precision by The Blake Group and are a fitting addition to the bridge’s abutments marking the year this grand structure will open”
