Pebble Seats for Exeter Mother and Baby Unit
The Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital is due to open a new 8-bed Mother and Baby Unit in 2019 (MBU). Barrell Sculpture were contacted in November 2018 to see if we could help with some beautiful sculptural seating to sit outside the unit. The original plans had involved beautiful but very expensive seating. The landscape contractors wanted to offer an equally beautiful but less expensive alternative.
Matt textured Pebble Seats
Barrell Sculpture were delighted to propose three Pebble Seats, a round Pendeen in soft white, an oval Pendeen in mid-grey, and a large Pico in soft white. They were looking for as cost-effective a solution as possible without losing quality or the integrity of the landscape design. We proposed the new matt textured finish Pebble Seat as opposed to the highly polished option. This option is a little bit more budget friendly. And we’re always pleased to assist the NHS, (or charities,) so we gave them a good price and waived the usual delivery charges.
Delivery and Installation
Ben actually delivered the Pebble Seats personally and assisted with the installation. This involved swinging the individual seats by crane over the building and into the courtyard. He’s had a lot of experience with maneuvering the heavy solid concrete Pebble Seats into position. He is always to either willing to help with installation if its feasible, or give guidance over the telephone.
The Exeter Mother & Baby unit will provide much needed facilities for mothers and their poorly children. We are delighted to be a small part of such a valuable resource.
