Urban Fountains and Furniture were approached to manufacture and supply the new bespoke bike racks/signage and coloured concrete stools for Park Rd Milton.
The bike racks were creatively designed by Formzoo for the Brisbane City Council Urban Design Team with fabrication and construction functionality advice from UrbanFF.
The bike racks were manufactured from 10mm steel that was left in an Architectural Galvanised finish. The feature inserts were manufactured from stainless steel and were powder coated in a variety of contrasting colours with an Anti-Graffiti protective shield.
Previous concrete stools have been manufactured from plain concrete which were painted after installation often resulting in fading colour and removal of the paint in parts with wear and tear. These stools were manufactured using concrete that had a special dye permeated through it to give it a rich even colour that will remain stable through the longevity of the stool itself. A customised lifting point was used for ease of installation and hidden by insertion of a stainless steel top cap once in place.
The end result is a stunning contemporary modern look to the upgrade of Park Road in Milton.
