MultipliCITY Bins, MultipliCITY Benches
A multi-million pound Waitrose store opened in Worcester in summer 2016. The 40,000 sq ft flagship shop, includes a coffee shop with outside seating and 285 parking spaces, and created over 200 jobs.
Artform Urban Furniture was specified by the architect to supply outdoor bench seating and litter bins to match the rest of the scheme.
Multiplicity backless benches and Multiplicity litter bins were selected, both of which form part of the award-winning Multiplicity collection of integrated street furniture.
The sleek finish of the contemporary litter bin along with the versatile wide benches supported on bold, seamlessly formed aluminium castings were the ideal visual match to complement the high quality finish and modern feel of this new store.
Benches were interspersed between planters facing the vehicle drop off point, allowing shoppers to take a well-earned rest and put down their shopping while waiting to be picked up. Seating was also introduced on the approach path to the store to again providing an interim rest point and allowing an opportunity for people to meet and sit down.
Litter bins were positioned at strategic points on site to take care of any waste from shoppers.
The technical sales team at Artform also assisted the appointed contractor by supplying comprehensive installation instructions and detailing, as provided with all products from the Landscape Forms range.
The end result for the project was a newly completed store that reflected the attention to detail in the landscaping and visually reinforces the brand promise that the Waitrose name represents in the retail food marketplace – namely one of high quality and good taste.
