We were approached by the developers of a site in Cambourne and asked if it was possible to create some large 2 x 2 x 1.3m planters. These planters were to be clad in granite tiles. One requirement of the Cambourne brief was that it should be possible to move the planters, even when fully planted.

This meant designing a structure which would stay rigid, even when moved, whilst loaded with a gross weight of more than 5 tonnes. Working with our structural engineers we designed a planter very similar to our standard Tree planter with a stainless steel rim which complimented the Cornish granite surround and with the aid of a forklift could be repositioned, as required, if access was need for street services.
