RBC Vancouver Olympics Torch Relay Vehicles

RBC Vancouver Olympics Torch Relay Lead Vehicle

 Fabrication Highlights:

• Fully licensed tour vehicle • 20 foot computer-controlled message board
• Integrated sound system • Custom fabricated from the frame on up


As one of the two Presenting Sponsors of the Vancouver Olympic Games, the Royal Bank of Canada wanted a lead Olympic Torch Relay Vehicle that was both captivating and capable. Great Lakes Scenic Studios custom fabricated "Loonie", RBC's lead truck, as well as other smaller support vehicles, as part of the touring team that made the longest Olympic Torch Relay trek in history, banking 45,000+ kms in all.

Winter weather in Canada varies from the somewhat mild temperatures in BC to the downright cold, snowy and windy weather in most other parts of the country. As a Presenting Sponsor of the games, RBC knew it needed a caravan of vehicles built to handle both the crowds and the climate. Starting with a cab and a frame, our welders went to work to build a dynamic scenic structure that was both rugged and inviting. Platforms were built to house the Bank's touring Olympic staff as they made their trek across the Canadian landscape.  A giant programmable pixel board banner was used for the Bank's messaging that was visible from near and afar both day and night. By the time the Olympic cauldron was lit, the truck had been on the road for 106 days and toured through over 1000 communities.

Holt Renfrew Square One Nail Bar

HR Nail Polish Bottle

We had the pleasure of parterning again with our long time client Holt Renfrew to produce massive oversized nail polish bottles for the grand opening of their newest store in Square One. Each piece was hand carved from styrofoam and finished in Holt Renfrew's glossy trademark magenta. Thia unit was over 7' tall by 4' wide and was showcased in their main atrium. When a client calls with a seemingly impossible request, we find a way to make it happen!
