Glasgow Cuningar Boulder Park
Won Highly Commended at The Concrete Awards 2015
This is an excellent initiative and the overall impact of the constructed boulders is very impressive, with the different shapes being created to give a genuine interpretation of real rock formations. Sprayed concrete has been used to its full potential and was an ideal material fit for construction – a great promotion of the materials flexibility and sustainability. Concrete in its wet state was manipulated to great effect, allowing the boulders to be shaped, while still being able to consider the surface texture.
The concrete boulders complement the surroundings in terms of appearance and encouraging people to participate. The boulders are very striking due to their artistic intervention and are sculptures in their own right.
The quality and feel of the final product was pivotal in the overall choice of the successful tender and the client has been rewarded with a facility that not only integrates into the surroundings but also should stand the test of time and give years of enjoyment to the people of Glasgow. The workmanship and finish of the boulders is superb and a credit to all involved.”
The boulders have proved hugely popular at our public events to date, and our come and try sessions working with TCA at each have been oversubscribed each day!”
