Onslow Park & Ride Seating Case Study | Goose Foot

The Project

MCS Construction approached Goose Foot Street Furniture with an initial design by BBM Sustainable Design Architects, to determine if we could manufacture six bespoke outdoor benches for the new Onslow Park and Ride shelter in Guildford.

The new shelter consists of an indoor and outdoor waiting area, including external street furniture, which has improved the overall aesthetics of the area and provides a practical seating option for the public. 

The Outcome

We manufactured the six 1635mm x 450mm benches in-house using our laser cutting, fabrication and powder coating facilities. The benches comprise of a fully welded, mild steel frame which have been hot dip galvanised, fettled and polyester powder coated with timber slats fastened from underneath.

As an alternative to Iroko hardwood, the client chose to have Sweet Chestnut wood which we managed to source successfully and to budget.

Gary Henderson, Business Development Executive at Goose Foot said: “We were delighted to be asked by MCS to manufacture the bespoke benches for the outside waiting area of the new Onslow Park & Ride building.

“We are often required to work with a variety of materials, so the request to use Sweet Chestnut timber as opposed to some of the more popular hardwoods proved to be no problem at all.

“The result was six very durable, robust and stylish benches that enhance the project and provide the public with a comfortable seating option.”
