Context

Large bespoke steel planters were commissioned for the residential redevelopment of Edinburgh Gate, Harlow.

Project details

The main planters are located within three full-height atria, which form the central heart of the building.

The largest planters were 6496 (l) x 2500 (w) x 1050mm (h). All planters are of complex form, and fabricated from 2.0mm zintec steel, with a polyester powder coat finish.

The designs for the atrium planters also included provision for LED under lighting (supplied by IOTA pre-assembled), and associated electrical service connection. The planters also include hinged doors, opening to a set of electrical sockets for utility use – such as cleaning. Finally, all planters are sealed watertight internally, given their use in an interior space.

In addition to the atrium planters, IOTA also designed, supplied and installed 16 steel planters which form a safety barrier around the viewing platforms at each level. The solution is simple, low-cost, yet effective, based on a 40 x 40 x 2.5mm SHS frame within the planters, fastened into structural concrete floor beams via 12 resin anchors per planter. The solution was structural engineer certified as part of IOTA’s delivery.
