A World Heritage Symbol for the City of Bath

We are lucky enough to be based in the beautiful City of Bath, a World Heritage City, UNESCO added Bath as a cultural site to its World Heritage List 25 years ago in 1987. To commemorate this anniversary we were commissioned by Stephen Bird, Head of Heritage Services at Bath and North East Somerset District Council (BANES) to create a large-scale World Heritage Symbol. We were delighted to be asked to make this prestigious piece, an unusual metalwork commission for the Ironart team. The brand new World Heritage Symbol is located high up in the entrance to the Roman Baths in the Pump Rooms in the centre of Bath – you really cannot miss it!

The impressive large-scale sculpture was fabricated from 2.5mm sheet steel which had been plasma cut to shape using a wooden mock-up of the finished article. We constructed it in a hollow box section and it was finished in our sprayshop in a satin gold paint before being carefully transported to site by the Ironart team.  Let us know if you visit the Roman Baths and spot it, we’d love to hear what you think!
