Silas Street Art Installation - Call for EOI

Published: Monday, 14 October 2019 at 4:01:31 PM

Purpose:  to install a unique entry statement for the East Fremantle Town Centre.

Considerations:  the final piece should;

  • be fabricated from durable materials, but be sufficiently frangible so as to not withstand a significant vehicle impact;
  • have no entrapment areas or sharp edges;
  • be accompanied by relevant engineering certification provided by a suitably qualified engineer and meet relevant Australian Standards;
  • have a minimum lifespan of twenty years and incorporate an anti-graffiti coating to its finish, noting that it should avoid being ‘glary’ in sunny conditions;
  • be sufficiently robust to withstand general wind loading, noting that due to its proximity to residences there should be no noise (including wind) associated with the piece;
  • have a narrow base which is able to be mounted with bolts (of the type that shear on impact) to a concrete foundation; and
  • be of a slim design that does not extend past inner kerbing to ensure critical sight lines are not compromised and that the installation is unlikely to be damaged by passing traffic.

 Site:  the installation will be located centrally in the roundabout situated at the intersection of Silas Street and St Peters Road, East Fremantle.
