Overview

Barrell Sculpture supplied three Pico Pebble Seats to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital for the new 8-bed Exeter Mother & Baby Unit (MBU), due to open in 2019. The Pebble Seats feature a new textured matt finish, introduced for 2019.

Requirement

Barrell Sculpture was contacted in November 2018 to see if they could help with some sculptural seating to sit outside the unit. The original plans had involved beautiful but very expensive seating. The landscape contractors wanted to offer an equally beautiful but less expensive alternative.

Products supplied

Barrell Sculpture proposed three Pebble Seats: a round Pendeen in soft white; an oval Pendeen in mid-grey; and a large Pico in soft white. They were looking for as cost-effective a solution as possible without losing quality or the integrity of the landscape design.

Barrell Sculpture proposed the new matt textured finish Pebble Seat as opposed to the highly polished option, which is a bit more budget-friendly. The company is always pleased to assist the NHS (or charities), so agreed a favourable price and waived the usual delivery charges.

Delivery and installation

Ben delivered the Pebble Seats personally and assisted with the installation. This involved swinging the individual seats by crane over the building and into the courtyard. Ben’s had a lot of experience with manoeuvring the heavy, solid concrete Pebble Seats into position. He is always willing to help with installation if its feasible, or give guidance over the phone.

Outcome

The Exeter Mother & Baby unit will provide much needed facilities for mothers and their poorly children, and Barrell Sculpture was delighted to be a small part of such a valuable resource.
