We were appointed to design, manufacture and install modern shelters for the Promenade in Cheltenham town centre. We submitted a number of concept sketches to the client, who then asked us to quote on the preferred shelter design. The client felt this design offered both originality and functionality thanks to its distinctive roof and single point glazing coupled with easy fitting of RTPI screens and good visibility for bus users.
- Powder coated mild steel framework
- 10mm toughened glass panels
- Screen printed manifestations on glass
- Stainless steel point glazing system
- Rolled steel roof hoops
- Bronze solid polycarbonate roof glazing
- Wooden seating
- RTPI integration including bracket
- VIA LED lighting units
- Integral wiring
- DRU timetable Case
The shelters were designed, manufactured and installed to the agreed design and to programme and the installation was phased to meet the requirements of the contractor undertaking the specialist reinstatement to the footway. A further consideration was to minimise the inconvenience to the pedestrian traffic in this busy town centre.

The customer was happy with the final appearance of the shelters, and the shelters were well received by the bus users.
