m-tec has manufactured a stunning 12 metre high sculptural water feature which now stands proud in the private gardens adjacent to the Royal Opera House in Muscat, Oman.

m-tec and the wider WEC Group won the contract to fabricate a replacement bridge for the village of Pooley Bridge. The Pooley Bridge, which dates back to 1764, was destroyed during the floods of Storm Desmond in December 2015, and the new stainless-steel bridge has replaced the crucial transport link for the local area.

Working in collaboration with network rail and artist Anu Paten, m-tec have fabricated and installed the poignant trees in memory of the victims of the Birmingham Pub Bombings on the 44th anniversary of the attack.

The sculpture was fabricated using 12mm thick grade 316 stainless steel sheets which were then welded together to form the unique shape. There is granite text lain into the ground below which is written in reverse, but when you read it using the mirror finish on the sculpture you are able to read the text which is based on the history of the town.
