Bradford Refurbishment Underway

Final work to refurbish the City Park water feature in Bradford has got underway following a burst pipe last year. The damage from this burst pipe was extensive, requiring repairs throughout the plantroom.

The Fountain Workshop managed to provide emergency repairs to the Mirror Pool plantroom immediately following the incident, meaning that the water feature was able to be partly operational throughout its most popular period over the Summer, and we are now delighted to share that we are now in the process of undertaking full refurbishment work.

We’re happy to announce that the plantrooms for our projects at International Square, Stratford and Southbank Place, London have been completely fitted out! The plantroom is the centre of any of our projects as it is from here that the water is cleaned, the jets are controlled, and the feature as a whole is managed.

International Square is just around the corner from a number of our existing projects, at the North and South Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
