A jumbo-sized prize!

Our project at Elephant Park has been awarded the New London Award for Placemaking in 2021! The development was particularly praised for the use of water and our very own Mel Chantrey was given a special mention for his contribution.

The jury said “This project should be lauded and awarded as a peacemaker. It is original, unique and daring.”

Read more about the project here. Congratulations to all of our colleagues and collaborators for their fantastic work on the space!

New Footage from International Quarter

International Quarter is a stylish and refreshing public space just moments away from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The Fountain Workshop provided water features for the space, comprising of three shallow pools out of which spring rows of tall, rhythmic jets.

We can now share this footage of the water feature, taken by our Managing Director David Bracey.

Coventry Plantroom Takes Shape

Coventry Plantroom Takes Shape

The plantroom for one of our Coventry projects is beginning to take shape. The plantroom roof was installed this week, meaning that the project is now well under way. The plantroom is a vital part of all our water feature projects as this is where the feature is controlled and monitored, and where the water treated.

The Fountain Workshop is providing two water features for Coventry City Centre a part of the Coventry City of Culture 2021 regeneration project. You can read more about the project here.

Fountain Workshop COVID-19 Update

Fountain Workshop COVID-19 Update

As a direct response to the Government guidelines, we temporarily stepped back from maintenance of our water features in March as many of them are located in publicly accessible spaces. Our decision was based on doing what we as, a responsible business, believed to be morally right at the time.

We have now begun to return to work. Although it may be some time yet before our water features are able to reopen to the public, we are excited to be returning to site and to our projects. We appreciate your continued support throughout this extraordinary time.
