Helping you design a playground…
End to End Service
We can provide you with a host of children’s outdoor playground designs. As the experts in play, we offer a wide range of services, which you can dip into or use from start to finish. Many of our business processes focus on product innovation, design, engineering, testing, fabrication and the supply of play equipment. However when we are asked to design a play space, many more services come into action.
We Research and Consult
For us to deliver the best play spaces that will be used well, we need to fully understand and engage with whole communities, young and old, to find out what is important to them and their children and what they want to do in their play environment. We will then interpret this into concrete, fully costed proposals.
We Help with Funding
Funding is all too hard to come by. Hearing about funding pots all the time, we can advise on what is available, and how to apply, helping with guideline quotations to help funding applications.
We Design the Playspace
We have a dedicated team of play space designers and graphic artists, led by a qualified landscape architect. Following a site visit, when we will listen to your thoughts and requirements, we will provide comprehensive proposals, designs and costings, for not just equipment but the whole landscaped playspace. These may be 2D, 3D, large scale drawings or even live walk-through presentations and video footage of similar existing installations.
Having our own manufacturing base, with skilled engineers and experienced fabricators means we can design and produce bespoke solutions. One example of this is the design and build of a play forest, in Castleford, West Yorkshire. Part of an extensive regeneration scheme, we worked to the specification of the project’s architect, which included innovative features such as solar lighting on top of each ‘tree’. And with our factory to hand, we are more than happy for community groups to visit us and see their own products being manufactured, helping with ownership.
Not all equipment needs replacing at the same time and it is pure waste to replace a well loved piece in a playground that still has years of life in it. We can inspect and advise on whether it is best to refurb or replace and are happy to do both.
We Build and Install
We can take care of the installation and landscaping, providing onsite project management as required.
We Inspect and Maintain
Your brand new playground will last much longer if it is well maintained. We are happy to provide a quote for maintenance and annual packages and regular technical inspections.
