1 Merchant Square, London

This eye catching scheme consisted of 14 powder coated curved planters surrounding the amphitheatre adjacent to the marketing suite at the prestigious 1 Merchant Square development, Paddington, London

About the project

This scheme featured arguably the most complicated planters we have fabricated to date.  Initially they appear quite simple with a constant radius, however every section is different, the heights varying from 1.1m to 0.1m. 

This was made more complicated with the back of the planter being 0.3m higher than the front of the planter.  In addition, the finished floor surface was sloped meaning each section sloped in multiple directions.  

The overall plan was divided into 14 manageable sections each measuring 2.4m long.  This fabrication would have been impossible to achieve without our ability to generate 3D models of every section ensuring all levels were maintained.

Our method of connected planters below the planting surface ensured the lip detail was continuous around the total radius.

The material used was galvanised steel.  Because of the degree of polishing it was decided that a zinc primer base layer was applied prior to final powder coating in Tiger Drylac 029/65650 Bronze effect finish.

This project was delivered on budget within just 3 weeks.
