IOTA was contracted to supply, install and plant bespoke stainless steel tree planters at University College Hospital [UCH], as part of a major expansion of the Accident and Emergency Department.

The 2nr. planters were fabricated from 3mm thick 316-grade Stainless Steel; and they are large planters of complex, asymmetrical form, with footprints up to 4m x 6m (see plan drawing in gallery). The original design conception was for the planters to be of double-skin construction, and to sit on top of pre-laid concrete foundations; but IOTA proposed a value-engineered solution based around a reinforced, single-skin construction, with integral steel plinths. The plinths were powder coated black, and were designed to include a 25 x 55mm vertical recess to house LED lighting.
