One of our largest bandstands to date, an impressive Edwardian-style structure commissioned by Mansfield District Council. The bandstand is located in the centre of Carr Bank Memorial Park, Mansfield which first opened to the public in 1924. The structure compliments the recently erected memorial in the park in honour of fallen military personnel.
The £98K order was for the design, manufacture and site installation of the 9.7 metre diameter 8.5 metre tall octagonal structure together with the supply of 20 cast iron park benches which were specially commissioned to match the bandstand railings.
The brief from Mansfield District Council was for Andy Thornton to design and tender for a bespoke bandstand. We were able to fulfill the design criteria with a 3d visual and accompanying CAD drawings, allowing the client to see exactly what would be manufactured.
The bandstand has been fabricated in prime quality structural steel and features cast aluminium support columns, pedestals, ornate floral capitals and spandrel brackets. Bespoke decorative balustrades to seven sides plus a double entry gate include integral handrail and exactly match old archive photographs supplied by the council.
