Cheltenham Borough Council commissioned IOTA to manufacture steel tree planters for a scheme to green two prime retail locations in pedestrianised areas of Cheltenham High Street.
The 5 planters were manufactured from powder coated steel, with resin-bound gravel lids, measuring 1200 L x 1200 W x 850mm H. They were built with an internal frame in mild steel box section, and powder coated to RAL 600 [Grey olive].
The planter design concept was developed by the Public Realm Design Team at Cheltenham Borough Council, with constructional detailing by IOTA.
Bespoke design elements included:
The paint was specially originated for the project, with a finely-textured surface finish. The installation was carried out by IOTA via HIAB lorry.
