Commissioning Thrussells to create Community Public Art

Example of Thrussells public art project delivery process

  •  Project proposal – to create a vision for delivering a entire project from commissioning to installation. 
  • Community engagement – presentations of working concept design, meeting with community groups to gather feedback on what the local community wish to envisage and what heritage and culture they would like to draw pride from. We provide design workshops, practical copper beating workshops and presentations. 
  • Design development – developing working concept to present to stakeholders for review. Developing a design that suit location, community, planning, health and safety, durability and maintenance requirements.
  • Technical planning and negotiating with stakeholders – understanding site limitations and requirements of all stakeholders and building relationships with the design and construction teams. Working with designers / architects, council planners, construction and surveying professionals to bring a project to realty.
  • Fabrication – As trained metal fabricators and engineers we provide and can over see all aspects of creating our artwork. Either from our workshop here on Bodmin Moor or if required working with professional fabrication suppliers and engineers across the South West.
  • Installation – With installation we provide risk assessments, installation method statements and maintenance schedules to cover all aspects of installation and ongoing maintenance. We can carryout the installation of a sculpture ourselves and or can assist with installation.
