The cathedral in York is recognised as one of the most beautiful medieval buildings in Europe and was constructed between 1220 and 1470. The area around the cathedral was renovated in 2012 and 2013, during which time remnants of an old Roman fortress and road were uncovered.
Kent Stainless tailored the design of their In-ground units, and matched this with recessed stainless steel Kent Solo Paver manholes to ensure the beautiful yorkstone paving remained prominent and unbroken. The bench edges were protected with Kent Swoosh studs, and the site perimeter was delineated with Kent demaracation studs. Kent Heelmesh ventilation grilles were used to cover underground basements - these were a special commission - support on 3 sides only with tapered sides.
The project was delivered on time and within budget.
