Sculpture and Steel
Shufflebottom is delighted to announce that one of its steel-framed agricultural buildings now sits proudly on the fields of a Surrey farm, owned by world-famous creative artist, the sculptor, Nic Fiddian-Green.
It is a real accolade that our building was selected by someone with a fine eye for beauty to stand alongside his famed sculptures on his own land. Nic Fiddian-Green is known globally for his sculpture – including the striking horses’ heads – which grace indoor and outdoor locations across London and the wider world. His work is stated as being, “deeply traditional and strikingly modern” and both “simple and spiritually calming.”
Whilst Shuflebottom’s steel-framed agricultural buildings might not be referenced in the same artistic terms, they are deemed by our many satisfied agricultural clients to be both beautiful and fit for purpose, which all good design should be. And the 23m x 18m x 7m (to eaves) building, with its timber clad walls and grey roof cladding, is practical and aesthetically pleasing, and makes for a lovely marriage of shed and sculpture in the Surrey landscape.
The building, manufactured to a detailed specification on site at our Cross Hands factory, was supplied, erected and project managed by our regular Kent customer, Brett Shortland, of www.shortlandstructures.com . This company has years of experience in customer management and offers its customers a “pain and hassle-free transition from idea to completion”, a mission that has been proved on the ground, in the Nic Fiddian-Green application.
We thank Brett for commissioning Shufflebottom – again – for the supply of the building, and we thank too, our very own salesperson, Rosemarie Jones, who negotiated this prestigious project of scale and scope.
