University of Minnesota: Custom Concrete Spells School Pride

No one said making letters in school could be made to look easy or cool, but it’s true. To help commemorate the opening of its brand-new Athlete’s Village, now one of the nation’s preeminent collegiate athletics complexes, the University of Minnesota Athletics Department tapped Tectura Designs to create a gigantic new custom concrete sign. The golden result, which required nine uniquely cast molds and anchor inserts, is earning top marks among the university’s approximately 750 student-athletes and countless fans. See how the process played out, from project kickoff to victory.
