 Kent Stainless worked with Volker Highways on their contract to upgrade the hard landscaping around the famous “Cutty Sark” ship. The area was identified by Greenwich Council as being underdeveloped with huge potential for tourism in the area.  Kent Stainless had previously worked with Volker and Greenwich council in the very successful “Woolwich town centre redevelopment” project.  With this in mind Kent Stainless were asked to design and manufacture a range of custom made “in ground units” and recessed access covers.  The covers were designed to be as invisible as possible to add to the aesthetics of the stone paving and the general area.  All covers were designed and manufactured to D400 loading in case of emergency vehicle access.
The “in ground units” were required to allow outdoor events and public speaking to be held in the area without the need for generators.  The In ground units were custom designed for secure access, so that only permitted users can access the units.  

Kent Spherical Anti Skateboard Studs were used extensively also on the edges of all planters and stone seating.
