The New Fusion Hive Innovation Centre at Northshore, Stockton-On-Tees, was part of a 56 acre and £300 million overall project. The 36,000 sq ft Innovation centre is a state-of- the-art, high-tech building that provides spaces for small and medium sized science and technology businesses. The building has space for 60 businesses ranging in size and some of the businesses that have already moved are award winning within their industry.

Having been identified as the preferred supplier, Artform offered a selection of site furniture elements which included Big Harris Benches, Word Bollards and Box Litter Bins. There were also bespoke signage plates incorporated into some of the bollards to identify disabled parking bays.

In order to allow staff & visitors to be able to travel by bicycle to this new building, Artform Urban Furniture were also asked to provide suitable cycle storage facilities in the form of a modern cycle shelter design.

The Fusion Hive building has become a part of a thriving science & tech business community. There are also now more opportunities for young people studying at Teesside University to build relationships with these businesses to improve innovation through collaboration.

Leader of Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, Councillor Bob Cook, said: "Stockton-on-Tees is fast developing its reputation as an incubator for new, exciting and growing digital, scientific and technology businesses and facilities like this will do much to help these sectors continue to flourish."

Artform were able to offer a design-led, high quality street furniture package that helped to reflect and emphasise the design and the use of the building. The project was successfully completed on time and within budget.
