Stockton High Street
As part of the regeneration of Stockton city centre, The Fountain Workshop has designed and built a water feature for Stockton High Street. A series of individual jets erupt from the paved flooring, drawing locals and tourists alike toward this energetic high street centrepiece.
The stonework itself is subtly dished, meaning that the space can be flooded to create a more defined water feature should the client so wish. During these times the jets are short and frothy, providing a calm background to the hustle and bustle of busy high street life. At other times, however, the jet become tall and clear.
Similar to our Queen Victoria Square feature in Hull, each jet in the water feature has its own individual pump and under water lighting, all or which can be controlled but our web-based control system that we have developed in-house.

This feature consists of 43 jets, which together form a crescent shape, mimicking the new stonework inlaid at ground-level. These jets exists in a series of arcs and circles, 18 and 12 jets in the outer arcs, 12 jets in the inner circle, and a single jet as the centrepiece.
