IOTA was contracted to design, manufacture and supply large steel planters, clad in granite, as part of streetscape landscaping for One Victoria Street in Windsor.
The planter design, as conceptualised by architects Rolfe Judd, required bespoke 50mm thick granite slabs to be hewn to a complex pattern; and there was a further functional design requirement that the planters be movable via fork lift. To withstand these loadings and stresses, the planters were massively constructed from 3mm 1.4003-grade Stainless Steel, with a fully welded subframe of 50x50x3mm stainless steel SHS. The largest planter, of dims. L 1920 x W 1810 x H 1123mm, weighed 1,521kg once completed.
The bespoke granite was specially sourced from a quarry in Italy by Pomery Natural Stone. IOTA’s planters were commissioned by B&K Building Services on behalf of clients Bowmer & Kirkland and Legal & General.
An impressive 47,000 sq ft contemporary HQ office building located in the heart of this vibrant and thriving commercial centre steeped in royal heritage. One Victoria Street is the first newly developed office building in the town for over 20 years and will provide outstanding work space from Q4 2020.
