This 400ft-tall flagpole has been engineered to welcome the Sheboygan, Wisconsin community for the next 50 years.
Arup served as the technical advisor for this 400ft-tall, free-standing flagpole owned by the ACUITY Insurance Company. The pole, which is currently the largest in the United States, was dedicated in June.
“ACUITY erected its first flagpole after 9/11 as a tribute to our Nation’s soldiers, and from there its meaning, intent and symbolism have grown to mean many different things to many different people. During this latest installation we knew this was much bigger than a construction project and we were committed to doing it right in order to provide our community with a beacon of hope and patriotism well into the future. It brought a great sense of comfort and confidence to our team knowing we had Arup’s experience and expertise guiding all aspects of the project on our behalf. They helped us stay focused and the end result is exactly what we were striving for. It was wonderful to have them by our side.”
