The Project

Plaque Frames for the Honour Roll Wall at the Children’s Medical Research Institute

The Challenge

Manufacture multiple double helix frames to represent DNA strands with consistency for public display. The complex frames required high operator skill for the overall finish to be aesthetically pleasing from all angles, sourcing of colours to meet the clients style guide and arrange for safe interstate delivery of the finished frames ready to install.

The Solution

From the initial enquiry, Bendpro was eager to work with the client to achieve their concept through multiple phone calls to assist design and clarify requirements, producing samples and also personally meeting with the client to ensure all details were covered before commencing the project.

Initially requested in SHS, Bendpro worked with different materials to meet the dimensions required and get the right look in the coil using quality controlled CNC rolling methods which produced the coils consistent in appearance. The client emphasised the welds had to be neat, and with an expert’s attention to all requirements, Bendpro created a flawless product fit for display at the Institute.

The colours were also an important part of the brief and aesthetics, and Bendpro was able to assist the client to match the Pantone colours of the Research Institute’s style guide to the Australian Standard Colours AS2700 for Industrial Coatings which ensured availability and ease of coating for the 2-pac system requirement.

To guarantee the frames were delivered safely to site, Bendpro constructed a custom stillage in which the frames were bolted down to keep them from moving. Each frame was individually foam wrapped as an additional safeguard.

The success of the project was attributed to the information attained during quoting stage, Bendpro’s ability to produce a prototype that could be replicated with consistency and the attention to every detail through fabrication and delivery. We were very proud to be part of such a project.

Client Testimonial

“I would like to thank you once again for the all the fantastic work you put in for us on the helix sculptures – from working together during concepting to prototyping, logistics and of course all the detailing in the final product.

It’s been quite a journey since our first interaction during the converting stage, but the day has finally come and the helix’s have been installed!

Our clients and onlookers today were over the moon with the finished product, as I’m sure the donors will be also.

Please find attached a few snaps from today’s install.

Looking forward to working together again on future projects!”
