Yorkminster

Location:  York, England
Project: Manufacture and Supply of a range of stainless steel Manhole Covers
Architect: Aroll & Snell
Main Contractor: William Annaley
Value: €300, 000

The cathedral in York is recognized as one of the most beautiful medieval  buildings in Europe and was constructed between 1220 and 1470.  The area around the cathedral was renovated in 2012 and 2013, during which time remnants of an old Roman fortress and road were uncovered.
Kent Stainless tailored the design of their In Ground Power Units, and matched this with recessed stainless steel Kent Solo Paver manholes to ensure the beautiful york stone paving remained prominent and unbroken.  The bench edges were protected with the Kent Swoosh Studs, and the site perimeter was delineated with Kent Demarcation Studs.
Kent Heelmesh Ventilation Grilles were used to cover underground basements – these were a special commission – support on 3 sides only and with tapered sides.
