Woodscape hardwood outdoor furniture chosen for Trafford Town Hall redevelopment
British manufacturing firm Woodscape has supplied a range of superb-quality, hardwood street furniture to Trafford Borough Council as part of renovation works that saw new council offices and a full refurbishment of an existing Grade 2 listed town hall at Old Trafford.
A landscaped space, located within the centre of both the old and new buildings, features Woodscape’s contemporary slatted seating alongside wall seat-tops to the sunken garden.
Woodscape’s furniture combines a simple, natural appearance and timeless quality with a robust construction for an elegant seating solution that blends perfectly with both the old and new buildings within the scheme. Woodscape worked with Grontmij, Adana Construction, 5plus Architects and Shepherd Construction to realise their street furniture requirements, supplying both standard and bespoke hardwood seating and bollards.
The teams chose Woodscape’s products as they make a much bigger contribution to the scheme than simply good looks. Hardwood is a construction material sourced from sustainable forests that renews itself naturally so it is in keeping with sustainable development. It is also extremely robust with a life expectancy of around 100 years in UK ground conditions, vandal and fire resistant and requires very little maintenance, making it the ideal long-term investment for the public sector.
