This project has been delivered by Shepherd Construction as part of the Telford BSF programme that escaped the worst of the cuts and continues, but in a cost effective format. We were originally specified by Colour Urban Landscape Architects and worked with them and the contractor to supply a range of street furniture. The emphasis being on cost certainty and hard wearing durable products. The courtyard shelter is functional and durable, and importantly provided at a sensible cost.
All other elements of the street furniture package, such as benches, concrete cylinders, timber cubes and picnic tables are free standing to give the college a flexible approach to furniture provision. It also meant that Shepherd could take delivery of the items and place them once the landscaping aspects were complete. This gave the site management team great flexibility.
