Artform Urban Furniture supplied a range of street furniture for a £1bn waterside mixed-use development project at Middlewood Locks, Salford. The 24.5-acre regeneration scheme is set to deliver a brand new neighbourhood of 2,215 homes and 900,00sq ft of commercial and mixed-use developments including hotel, office, retail and leisure.
After extensive discussions, Artform was appointed by BCEGI Construction to supply a number street furniture elements to the scheme, taking into consideration the waterside environment and surrounding architecture.
Box litter bins featuring unique laser-cut patterns and a durable powder-coated finish are distributed across the canalside landscape.
Giada, a robust and hardwearing granite and timber bench was selected to line the edges of the canal path.
Two versions of the Inside cycle stand were also supplied, some with a hollow section and others with bespoke stainless steel laser-cut panels featuring the Middlewood Locks logo.
Heavy-duty telescopic bollards have been installed to provide access control with the option to lower, allowing access for maintenance vehicles.
The project is currently in the final stages of its second phase; Artform will be supplying further street furniture elements to the development. Phase 2 will deliver 4 new residential blocks and landscaped gardens adjoining the park by the canal.
Middlewood Locks received an award in 2019 for Insider North West's Large Apartment Development of the Year.
