The new sports centre in Colchester provides top class facilities for both high level performance athletes as well as recreational users from the university. Aggregate-filled gabion mesh baskets define the borders between the soft and hard landscape areas to protect the planting and to also provide informal seating walls. Gabions themselves can be uncomfortable to sit on, but with the addition of Furnitubes’ Lapa benches they provide an economic seating solution used to provide short term perch seating for people meeting before using the sports centre facilities, or a place to briefly rest afterwards.
