Challenge

A project to regenerate Bexhill-on-Sea seafront required seating so that people could have somewhere to sit, relax and enjoy the views.

Solution

Benchmark's Norfolk and Chico benches were supplied for this project as the furniture complemented the distinct character and identity of the site.

In addition to the standard product designs, the project involved extensive bespoke elements including wall-top benches and huge flagpole storage boxes, all made from FSC iroko hardwood and cast and die aluminuium.

Norfolk and Chico benches are part of Benchmark's collection of street furniture designed by Wales & Wales. A bespoke design service is offered for large projects.

Outcome

The use of high-quality materials ensures that the benches will exist for many years in this harsh saline environment.
