We were approached to manufacture a set of gates for the new Country Park being developed on the site of the old Betteshanger Colliery by SEEDA (South East England Development Agency). This project ended up being called Fowlmead Country Park in Deal, Kent. With this project being almost on our doorstep, we were keen to be involved!
Although a design concept for the gates had already been produced, we worked with the designers to develop this concept, and had to come up with solutions for how we could actually produce the parts, as well ashow they would be assembled. We then developed the original design concept into a fully detailed set of drawings which we were able to manufacture from.
The gates were manufactured and installed by us in time for the grand opening of the park (by David Bellamy OBE!) in May 2007, and take pride of place at its entrance!
