Laser expert Cutting Technologies (Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England) has been working alongside public arts and landscaping specialist Circling the Square. The two companies worked on a project to renovate an old pavilion on Old Heath Road in Colchester, Essex, England, as well as an intricate sculpture involving laser cutting for Jephson Gardens (Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England).

The sculpture is in commemoration of William de Normanville, a former engineer and inventor of the Borough. It was designed by Tim Ward of Circling the Square and laser-cut by Cutting Technologies.

The companies also joined forces to transform an old pavilion in Colchester, where Tim Ward designed five gates that reflect the heritage of the recreation and celebrate aspects of local culture. They were intricately laser-cut by Cutting Technologies.

"Both projects have significant importance to their local communities and it's been a pleasure seeing both come to life," Ward says. "We've worked with Cutting Technologies across various projects and they're always great to work with."
