Bench Numbers:
All
Estimated Hours Taken:
N/A
Materials:
Stainless steel and oak
Ground Preparation:
I anticipate that a discreet concrete/stone pad would be required at each end of the base to provide a level surface for installation.
Fixings / installation:
The bench is formed from two metal bases and six sections of timber so could be installed on site as a kit of parts to aid handling or manufactured off site and installed as one piece. The bench would be bolted down to a discreet concrete or stone pad. I anticipate that the final resolution would be reached during the detailed design phase when a fabricator has been selected and the final weight of the bench accurately calculated.
Maintenance:
The materials and specification have been chosen for their robustness and will age beautifully over time. The metal bases require no maintenance but it is suggested that a visual inspection is undertaken once a year to assess the timber and whether re-oiling may be required. The design is such that should a section of timber become damaged, it could be easily replaced.
Cost:
Total estimated cost: £1600. This cost could be reduced by altering the specification of the metal and timber e.g powder coated mild steel.
