Firing Up Brookfield Scouts
Atco Steel Developments & United Steel helping out Brookfield Scouts
Apr 14, 2021
The Corten Plate was provided to Atco Steel Developments, who fabricated the plate into Braziers. Atco Steel Developments has been part of the Wellington Structural Steel Fabrication scene since 1939. This job was just a tad smaller that Atco Steel’s usual projects, but it was all done for a good cause.
The Braziers allow the Brookfield Outdoor Education Centre users to continue to enjoy the pleasures of sitting around an open fire, while remaining safe with the logs now unable to roll out of the fire.
The Brookfield Outdoor Education Centre has a long history of providing New Zealanders with various outdoor experiences. The land was bequeathed to Scouting NZ in 1958, following the death of Mary Crowther. Mary befriended the Nelson brothers, who just after WW1 could often be found maintaining the property or bringing their Scout Troop across the Wainuiomata Hill to camp on the property. This began a long association between the property and Scouts Aotearoa.
