Centurion Sentius


We had the privilege to fabricate the Centurion Sentius Tectonicus designed by John O’Rourke which is now on display at the Segedunum Roman Fort located in Wallsend. Sentius Tectonics was constructed by Apprentices here at WD Close & Sons under the supervision of John O’Rourke himself and WD Close supervisors.

Sentius Tectonics stands an impressive 8.5ft tall and made up from 575 individual Corten components which is the same material as the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art also supplied and fitted by WD Close & Sons.
