In preparation for the Chicago Cubs’ 2017 season, Wrigley Field was looking for custom-shaped light poles to decorate its new “The Park at Wrigley” plaza area just outside the stadium. Although their first attempt with another pole manufacturer fell short due to structural and budget concerns, Valmont proved yet again the only one capable of taking on the challenge.
The new plaza was to feature three different size custom steel poles, which would resemble the I-beams used on the stadium structures. The customer also needed the poles to be strong enough to enable them to mount light fixtures, speakers, screens and cameras. In order to imitate the shape and ensure structural soundness, Valmont welded together square-shaped tubes and angle irons.
