The Lawrenceville Arts Center, Gwinnett County’s newest performance facility, opened its doors to the public in 2021. Developed through the combined efforts of Aurora Theatre and the City of Lawrenceville, the complex is located at the corner of East Pike and North Clayton streets in the heart of the city’s historic downtown area. The architect wanted to provide an area to host both indoor and outdoor performances, but heavy traffic on East Pike Street posed planning and security challenges for outdoor events. A solution was needed to provide for the efficient movement of outdoor seating and the necessary blocking of unrestricted entry of wayward vehicles. Hence, the owner reached out to Georgia Precast Solutions (GPS) to see if we could provide them with precast concrete planters that could be easily moved, with plantings, with a pallet hand truck.
GPS provided our Alpine moveable planter with stainless steel embeds at the base with notches for a standard 48” long x 27” wide opening for movement with a pallet hand truck. The planters were 48” square x 36” high with light sandblast finish. Planters were placed in key places to assist with access control and can be moved when necessary for venue access.
