International Square and Southbank Place Projects Reach Milestone

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.

The London Design Festival has returned to King’s Cross for another year, this time bigger and better than ever before!

For LDF 2019, however, the involvement of King’s Cross in the Festival has expanded, with King’s Cross becoming the LDF’s very first Design District. Through this, the area has hosted a number of exhibits and events, including displays as part of London Fashion Week.

Bradford Mirror Pool Reopens

Thanks to the fantastic work of our Maintenance team, the Bradford Mirror Pool fountains have been turned back on after a water flow problem cause them to be nonoperational throughout July. The repair has been completed ahead of schedule, with only the central jet remaining to be tackled.

While the Mirror Pool was turned off, Bradford Council turned the City Park into a beach and used the space for events as part of their summer science festival. While these were both hugely popular, the people of Bradford have made their delight at the return of the water very much known through social media! Thank you, Bradford, for your patience and enthusiasm!

The feature consists of a number of jets, fog, and a large space that can be flooded or left dry as required. It is estimated that the Mirror Pool will be reopened in August, with the fountain jets being turned back on in November.
