King’s Cross, London N1C

Posted 12.03.2018

Bespoke Corten Steel planters were commissioned for the iconic Gasholders London development, in the heart of the King’s Cross urban regeneration zone.

The planters are complex, asymmetrical cones in form; and they are massive in scale, with the largest being Dia. 4793 x H 2102mm and 1200kg in weight. Each planter was made from 12 sheets of 3.0mm Corten Steel, rolled to form, and welded to a sub-frame of rolled 50 x 50mm box section. The planters were each shipped in 4nr. sections, for on-site assembly; and lifting eyes were incorporated into the sub-frame structure, to facilitate installation via forklift.  

IOTA’s delivery was on the basis of design, manufacture, supply and installation; and IOTA also supplied the planters pre-weathered, with the characteristic patina of Corten already developed. IOTA’s planters were commissioned for this project by landscape contractors Maylim, for main contractor Carillion.
