    Just went up on Wednesday -
    10' tall, 10' wide, with 76" circle. Pushthrough acrylic letters and logo, brushed aluminum face for blockout.
    Had to reduce the size of "apartment homes" to get it past our town's draconian permitting laws... at least to pass inspection.

    very cool! you wouldn't happen to have a shop drawing showing how a sign like this is constructed do you? I'm always curious how some of these large monument signs with different elements are all structurally held together without any visible fasteners.

    tubular aluminum frame with crossmembers, aluminum skin riveted on, then rivets are painted.

    This one was two pieces - base and then copper and circle topper. We direct mounted them to the two 4" steel poles on the interior.

    If you zoom in on the picture, you can see the face returns have attachments. Remove them, and you can access the anything holding the sign together, or the attachments to the posts.

    Not a big fan of rivets, I would have plug weld and glued it together over a kerfed cut aluminum frame.
    I would also try as hard as I could not to have a seam running through the face of it.

    Nice design though... very clean.

    Circle face has 2" retainer, with break about 1/3 of the way up. Means we only have to lift the face about 6" to pull it out. It's a heavy sumbish, especially with the pushthroughs tacked on.

    Seam was unavoidable, unfortunately. Couldn't get a brushed aluminum piece large enough.
