A larger than life experience

We approached Trinity Shopping Centre with a monster of an idea. An installation for summer 2018 that was unlike anything seen in Leeds before.

We suggested bringing a Jurassic adventure to life by installing a life-size T-Rex dinosaur. We wanted to engage and excite visitors throughout the summer.

The Trinity team loved the idea.

Now the work began

We set to, sourcing a 16 metre long and 8 metre high T-Rex to be built and shipped from China. After a long journey tucked up in a 40ft shipping container, he arrived in Leeds for his big reveal.

A lot of heavy lifting

We project managed this installation of enormous proportions. We sourced, delivered and installed the dinosaur in Trinity Leeds, just in time for the beginning of the school holidays.

After an intense two night build, the Trinity T-Rex was born, standing proudly atop Trinity’s Apple store. He roared, shook his head and wagged his tail. Weighing in at over 5 tonnes, some seriously major machinery was drafted in to help lift the beast. A 12 tonne JCB tele-handler working through the night to lift him into position.

He even had an eventful trip up Briggate, Leeds’ main shopping street, turning quite a few heads.

The event of the summer

The dinosaur was in place for 6 weeks at the end of summer. He drew in a family audience to the centre, encouraged engagement, interaction and social sharing and brought a summer of activity to life.

Take home your own dinosaur

Not only were visitors able to see the spectacle of this impressive monster, we also ran a merchandise unit alongside the dinosaur. This gave everyone the opportunity to take home a little piece of Jurassic excitement to remember their Trinity T-Rex experience.
