ParticipACTION – Toronto, 2017
For Canada’s 150th anniversary, ParticipACTION selected 150 activities that define Canadian culture. For the reveal at Nathan Philips Square, the non-profit organization that promotes healthy living and physical fitness sought to create an interactive environment, where the public could try some of the activities it was promoting. Based on ParticpACTION’s original design, PNH Solutions produced a custom-made 150-shaped activity course, made of modular, aluminum pieces, that was covered in printed, dye-sublimated tension fabric panels and that was rested on a printed graphic floor (‘ShowFloor’).
- Project consultation and management
- Product development
- Printing and hardware construction
- PNH Solutions successfully completed a fully-custom branded area, on time, and to ParticipACTION's entire satisfaction
- With ParticpACTION’s distinctive colors, orange and purple, and demarcations on the graphic flooring for different activities, including curling, stick pull and wheelchair racing, PNH Solutions helped the organization could promote its activities while engaging the public.
I've had the pleasure of working with PNH most recently on the ParticipACTION 150 Play List. They helped us build numerous custom elements, the most complex being the 150 activity course that was featured at the launch event in Nathan Phillips Square on January 6th, 2017. The activity course started out as a 3D rendering but they really helped my team bring it to life! They were very accommodating when it came budget constraints and dealing with tight timelines. Their customer service is excellent. Their R&D Director Claude in Montreal was very helpful when it came to building the activity course. He kept my team informed throughout the process and was always available to answer questions. Both Court and Carrie were there throughout the planning phase to answer any questions that came up. They also joined us for meetings with the City of Toronto and worked closely with us during the set up of the event. Working with PNH has been a great experience and the results have been phenomenal! The 150 activity course turned out really well even though it had to be set up outdoors in cold January temperatures. I look forward to continuing to work with them in the future!
