Royaume-Uni : inauguration de la fontaine de la place Queen Victoria à Hull

[8/10/2017] United Kingdom: Hull Queen Victoria Square Fountain Opening Ceremony

Eurovia Contracting North proudly unveiled the Queen Victoria Square Fountain in Hull at a celebratory opening. The bespoke design, featuring 77 individually computer‐controlled jets, a first in Europe, was showcased at the event in the city centre. The fountain is a modern take on the original appearance, created by former Turner Prize nominee, Mel Chantrey.

The scheme unearthed an unknown basement of a building that was bombed in World War II. Eurovia worked closely with archaeologists so that recordings of the ruins could be taken.
The existing basement was utilised to house the fountain plant room. The Hull improvement works began in September 2015 when Eurovia Contracting North engaged in a community‐wide consultation regarding the city’s improvements. The majority of the work which involved over 40,000m² of new paving was completed in April with further water features yet to be unveiled.
