Project Scope

This high profile project included the design & manufacture, delivery & offloading, setting out & installation of 13 large bespoke tree planters and 12 bespoke movable planters from a concept design provided by the landscape architect. The tree planters provide low level accent lighting via recessed LED panels and the movable planters were designed with lockable and retractable wheels allowing them to be safely relocated as and when required. Both products were constructed with very complex fabrications in stainless steel and patinated phosphor bronze cladding.

Our project team was set up to deliver this contract and included design engineers, structural engineers (to carry out finite element analysis), project managers and a fully qualified installation team.
