Puddler & Welder, Middlesbrough

This was the third of a number of gateway features in Redcar & Cleveland at the entrance to a new industrial estate development.

Each feature was designed to reflect the industrial heritage of the area with the steel making and manufacturing industry being the focus of this installation.

The lighting mimics the natural illumination of the two oversized mannequins. The Puddler appears to stoke a furnace and using the mix of orange shades to white he is bathed in light whilst the Welder is illuminated with blue fading to white emulating a weld flash.

The scheme also included the illumination of the gateway walls.

The lighting scheme was commended as part of the Redcar and Cleveland Design Awards.
