Driving economic regeneration and improving the point of arrival in Harwich were key factors behind a streetscape design project involving Broxap Street Furniture.
Tendring District Council wanted to revamp the quayside in Harwich and improve the setting through high design standards.
It aimed to enhance first impressions of the area with a quality quayside experience and a gateway into the town which recognised the character and history of Harwich.
The solution included replacing its existing suite of street furniture with contemporary, stylish seating which was sensitive to the surrounding historical architecture.
It also wanted to install better public seating along routes linking the quayside and town centre to encourage pedestrian use and provide a viewing area over the quay.
Harwich's links to maritime activities and the freight movement were celebrated throughout the scheme.
Broxap's Tiptree Seats and Tiptree Benches were therefore chosen for the project with their chunky timber slats representing railway sleepers as well as providing an attractive finish to the refurbishment of the area.
The £1.2 million project, which also included the widening of footpaths and road resurfacing, called for high quality materials to reflect the importance of the town's waterfront.
As well as the heavy duty Tiptree street furniture range, Broxap manufactured and supplied a series of Square Standard Cast Iron Bins, which are popular in heritage schemes.
Sheffield Cycle Parking Stands completed the order.
