Context

Planters were required for a left-over space between the Diamond building and the distinctive geometric Jessop West Humanities building at Sheffield University.

The brief was to create a space that could unite these building and add to the overall greening of the area, inspired by the Greening of Sheffield initiative.

Work undertaken

The overall scheme created a walkway between the building with planting around it, designed by Professor Nigel Dunnet and planted by the in-house landscape team.

Galvanised steel with a decorative lacquered finish was the chosen material for the edging and options were also created in wood and bronze.

The decking of the bridge sections consisted of a bound aggregate and the central area infilled with concrete and a bonded aggregate finish. A poem was carved in contrasting limestone.

The landform was created from a lightweight substrate often used on flat roofs, with good properties of water retention.

The steelwork was fabricated and installed by Chris Brammall Ltd.
