Chelsea 'Super-Prime’ Residential Development


Bespoke steel planters were commissioned for one of London’s most prestigious ‘super-prime’ residential developments in Chelsea, London SW1.

A total of 75 linear metres of planters were supplied, in a variety of configurations: including a continuous, L-shaped planter of L 25770 x W 1300 x H 700mm, in addition to a number of large rectangular trough planters of various lengths and profiles.

All planters were manufactured from 3.0mm thick Zintec Steel, polyester powder coated to either RAL 8014 [Sepia brown] or RAL 7005 [Mouse grey]. To meet stringent client expectations, a 3-layer paint system was applied, to guarantee a Design Life Performance in excess of 20 years.

The planters included IOTA’s standard design solution for LED under-lighting: based on a plinth, to create a 50 x 50mm shadow gap; plus a hidden, 20 x 20mm recess in the top face of the plinth, to house the LED light strips. Planters were also supplied with adjustable feet, and with 25mm Celotex thermal insulation to all internal planter sides and bases.    

IOTA’s planters were commissioned for this project by the leading landscape management services company, Gavin Jones Ltd. IOTA’s delivery was on the basis of design, manufacture, supply and installation.
