MORE ABOUT THIS PROJECT

This memorial project, funded exclusively through the donations of Canadians, presented a number of logistical challenges, including a tight timeline leading up to Remembrance Day. The design consisted of a series of large granite leaves, which we procured from quarries in India. After the shaped and polished granite arrived in our facility, the customer remarked at the quality of the material and beauty of the craftsmanship. To ensure a smooth process, we remained in close contact with the customer throughout, providing regular updates on the status of fabrication and delivery.

Due to the size of the pieces, we built a much larger sandblast booth to accommodate the sandblast design work, which was to be engraved on the leaves. Members of the media visited our facility during this process and documented the work because of public interest in the memorial. Once the pieces were complete we facilitated their delivery and installation, which took place in Quinte West’s Bain Park, a short distance from the start of the Highway of Heroes.

This project was truly special for everyone at HGH, and we are honoured to have been entrusted with creating a national icon.


Thank you for contacting us at HGH. We'll will be in contact with you shortly.
