Capita plc approached Factory Furniture to provide street furniture for Colmore Square, Birmingham – a public realm enhancement project in the heart of the city funded by Colmore Business District.
The brief included the design and manufacture of a number of large curved bespoke planters, some feature seating, litter bins, wall-mounted seating and furniture for a chess garden ‘pocket park’.
The planters were designed around the company's popular tree planter design, and were so large they had to be manufactured in sections that could be bolted together on site.
Factory Furniture also provided the concrete plinth for the feature seat, the concrete retaining wall and the concrete furniture for the chess garden.
The material pallet for the Colmore Square project included honed limestone-effect concrete, FSC® timber and stainless steel.
