New Eco Sculpture unveiled at Lower Precinct Shopping Centre

Coventry Editorial 28th Sep, 2021   0

LOWER Precinct Shopping Centre has unveiled a nine foot sculpture made entirely from recyclable materials, which will be displayed in the heart of the shopping centre over the coming months to demonstrate the importance of recycling.

The sculpture was commissioned by Lower Precinct but was delivered in partnership with the shopping centre, local artist Ildikó Nagy who designed and built the sculpture, the pupils of Eastern Green Junior School who worked with the artist to create many of the stunning ‘glass like’ panels from recycled bottles and facilities management company Mitie who facilitated the collection, cleaning and delivery of the recycled plastics used in the project.

Centre manager, Nicola Cormell said: “We are really pleased to have been able to commission this wonderful sculpture, which acknowledges the importance of nature and protecting our environment.

“The sculpture is a perfect symbol of the Centre’s respect of the environment, our collaboration with the community and our endeavours to ensure future generations benefit from our sustainability values.”




Daniel England, key account manager for waste & environmental services for Mitie added: “ Mitie were delighted to partner with Lower Precinct on this project as the ethos of the sculpture fits perfectly with our unique corporate ‘resource not waste’ philosophy.

“We work with businesses like Lower Precinct to increase recycle rates but also to prevent waste in the first place.”
