A range of bespoke steel planters was commissioned for Three Snowhill, a prestigious development within a £200 million scheme to enhance Birmingham's central business district.

Products supplied

  • Eight ‘Podium level planters’, integrated with recessed luminaire lighting, to form an outside meeting area next to the restaurant and metro line.
  • 23 large Queensway public realm planters to form a green protected walkway between the new office space at Three Snowhill and the extremely busy Queensway Road system. These created a total length of 55m and the largest section was 2536 (l) x 1624mm (w).

Work undertaken

The Queensway planters were constructed in massive sizes from 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0mm steel and include internal sub-frames, strengthened floors, and lifting eyes to enable safe lifting fully-loaded at a maximum weight of 6 tonnes (SWL tested and certificated).

The planters were fabricated from 3.0mm steel, zinc-primed and polyester powder coated to RAL 7040 [Window grey] using a durable matte, textured paint formulation from Interpon / Akzo Nobel's D1036 Textura range.

IOTA’s planters were commissioned by principal contractors BAM Construction, on the basis of design, manufacture and supply. IOTA also arranged for installation, under separate contract, via its strategic installation partner.

The installation programme took 2 weeks.
