Product Development Project Manager - Co-Innovate (co-innovateprogramme.eu)


Environmental Street Furniture (ESF) is a family owned business established in 1998, and under current ownership since 2012. ESF are a global designer and supplier offering beautifully designed furniture for outdoor spaces. ESF strive to deliver exceptional products and quality, offering excellence in design integrating technology, innovation and modern materials and currently export to over 26 counties worldwide. ESF carries our approximately 40% of its work in the UK and 60% of its work in Ireland.




Part of the company’s vision and strategic plan is to increase their market share in the rapidly expanding market of hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM), which will ensure future growth of the company. To this end, and to complement the current core activities of the company, ESF aims to amend existing HVM solutions and develop new products that will address the HVM control standards set by the Centre for the protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), the UK government’s national technical authority for physical and personnel protective security.


With the increasing risk of attacks on private and public infrastructure such as government buildings, data centres, stadia, and arenas, private clients, local and highway authorities, architects, landscape architects and engineers are looking for a greater suite of blended and dual use barriers that integrate into the urban landscape and public realm more sympathetically.


Therefore, affordable functional street furniture products that provide a level of vehicle impact resistance within the streetscape can help save lives. ESF will develop a design service for clients to achieve customised designs, in addition to standardised solutions for large scale HVM projects.
