Building the Dinosaur

The World’s Largest Dinosaur is a unique groundbreaking project. As may be expected, an undertaking of this magnitude required the coordinated efforts of many different organizations. The primary organization contracted to oversee the design and construction of the project was Amusement Leisure Equipment Ltd. located in Calgary, Alberta. However, associated companies produced many of the components. Three Star Steel, also located in Calgary, produced the underlying steel structure that provides the strength for the dinosaur. The skin components (the fiberglass molding and painting) came from as far away as China and the Phillipines. As such, the World’s Largest Dinosaur may be seen as a project with a truly global perspective. It shows what can be accomplished with cooperation across borders.
