Stunning new look delivered for historic Prestonpans War Memorial
Rankin Fraser’s successful competition submission aims to improve the setting of the memorial by repairing the surrounding walls, renewing paving and improving seating, providing new space for commemoration and local heritage interpretation. The proposals also include the removal of the 1950s viewing platform in favour of new openings in the existing walls allowing access to views of the Forth .
Due to the manufacturing flexibility in our Exeter street furniture range we were able to provide a number of FSC hardwood benches and seats that satisfied the clients remit. This entailed alterations to key dimensions as well as a modified fixing details to suit the constraints of the site. The inclusion of backrests and arms at specific points where also allowed for.
With the large majority of our clients wanting something more bespoke we are able to manufacture most elements to meet individual project needs.
The durable FSC hardwood matched with the a hidden internal steel frameworks gives a timeless and robust finish.
