WW1 Memorial Arch Kent

WW1 Memorial Arch

Folkestone, Kent

Architect: Foster Gearing

As one of the leading stainless steel fabricators, m-tec was commissioned by the educational charity Step Short to manufacture the iconic stainless-steel arch and bespoke seating that was unveiled by Prince Harry.

Designed by specialist architectural company Foster Gearing, the memorial arch overlooks the harbour where ships waited to take millions of soldiers to France during the course of the war. This project marks the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1.

Prince Harry Unveils Iconic Stainless-Steel Arch Crafted by m-tec.

Thousands of people turned out for the ceremony to commemorate the millions of men and women who travelled to and from the Western Front during the 1914-18 conflict, and the project was delivered to international property company Lend Lease ahead of schedule.

Together, the projects create a timeless feature integrated to complete the renovation of the Road of Remembrance.

A Timeless Tribute.

The associated seating made from marine grade 316 stainless steel and Iroko slats were designed and manufactured by sister company, Goose Foot Street Furniture to fit seamlessly into the recesses. They create a timeless feature within the town centre and blend into the surrounding area perfectly.
