Artform Urban Furniture has supplied its range of FGP Benches for a new seven storey building consisting of 40 apartments at Woden Street, in Salford. The mixed-use scheme, also called ‘The Gateway’ (due to its being located on a ‘Green Corridor’ as part of a local authority’s masterplan for the area), cost £6 million overall.
Artform Urban were asked to supply affordable and robust seating to be installed throughout the new building. Artform discussed with the client the challenges of a tight budget and a need for high quality design and a solid product at the end. After many conversations with the contractor and the architect, in which Artform proposed many variations to benches, The FGP Bench was chosen.
The FGP Bench was able to comply with the budget constraints, and was the perfect size for installing on site, whilst maintaining the aesthetic appeal of the overall project. The FGP Bench also requires little or no further maintenance, which was an important aspect for the client. The bench is manufactured using Sapele hardwood and cast aluminium supports that do not rust and show little or no scratch marks. The FGP Bench recommended by Artform met the client’s stringent criteria, by being both visually aesthetic, yet without the high “designer” price tag. The seating was also able to be produced on time and once installed, would require little maintenance.
