Stockton-on-Tees Town Centre, TS18


Bespoke steel tree planters were commissioned for public realm improvements in Stockton-on-Tees town centre.

The L 1200 x W 1200 x H 700mm planters were manufactured from 2.0mm thick Zintec Steel, Polyester Powder Coated to Mars 2525 Sablé [YX355F] from Interpon's Collection Futura range. Designed to be both moveable and suitable for tree planting, the planter design included attachment points for a rootball anchoring system; plus W 120 x H 95mm channels in the base, for movement via forklift or pallet truck.

IOTA’s planters formed part of extensive public realm improvements in the areas of Bishop Street / Silver Street [the Cultural Quarter]. These improvements provide enhanced connections to the Town Centre from the new hotel site and North Shore area; plus the pedestrianisation of Silver Street, to create an attractive, safe, family-friendly environment benefiting from minimal vehicle movement.
