Bristol-based graduate Tom Holmes set a new Guinness World Record after creating the structure that reached 5.275m at its peak. It took the record breaker 7.5 hours of gruelling concentration and 2,688 dominos to complete the towering task. The final result dwarfed the previous record holder by almost 20cm and would tower above the average double decker bus by over a metre. ‘As engineers, we’re constantly looking for creative solutions to solve problems so it’s great to put my skills to use in a fun task like this,’ he explained. ‘It’s not every day that you can say you’ve built the world’s largest domino tower.’ He spent months planning the project with Roland Trim, a colleague at design and engineering consultancy firm Arup.
