Custom Wooden Signage for Brisbane City Council
In 2020, one of our regular clients, Forge Bros Engineering, reached out and asked our technicians to help with a project for the Brisbane City Council.
The task was to cut two (2) “Queen Street Mall” signs out of soild timber; one for the Edward Street end of the mall and one for the section closest to George Street.
Our team meticulously crafted the lettering for the two signs out of hardwood timber.
The team at Australian Waterjet Cutting, headed by Ross, was an obvious choice for this project, with extensive experience in the process as well as a comprehensive understanding of the machines capabilities their ability to deliver a successful outcome was assured.
The capabilities of their machines were easily able to provide a cost effective and highly accurate outcome with minimal setup and processing costs. Compared to other processes considered and evaluated for this part of the project the Water Jet Cutting option won out by a considerable margin.
The accuracy that could be achieved by the use of Waterjet Cutting further improved the overall project costs by reducing labour requirements for post cutting finishing. This was also apparent during the installation as the tolerances achieved meant that each component fitted perfectly each time.
The service and capabilities of Australian Waterjet Cutting was a key element in the success of this project.
