Interchange, Croydon


Bespoke granite benches and tree planters were commissioned by McLaren Construction, for a project to refurbish the Interchange office building in Croydon.

The contractor’s requirement was for a cost-effective, practical seating solution for a public area, in a simple and contemporary style, which could be easily assembled on-site. The seating also needed to be supplied with matching tree planters, as part of the same scheme.

The benches were fabricated in lengths of 2000mm, in grey granite stone with a honed finish. All edges were rounded-off and chamfered. The benches were supplied disassembled, and were fabricated with mortise and tenon joints between the legs and seats which were resin-bonded on-site.

Matching tree planters were also supplied of dimension L 1200 x W 1200 x H 700mm. The tree planters included granite feet, and steel eye bolts in the base for lifting and tree anchor attachment.
