We were approached by Christine Rolfe in the Autumn of 2011, she has a beautiful new school building that was crying out for an equally stunning play space. Across the tarmac playground was a large expanse of grass, unfortunately the ground was poor, with rubble close to the surface and the grass was having difficulty growing.
Christine was sure this was the ideal situation for the play area so we set about designing her an outdoor play space. She outlined her brief specification; it had to have a natural feel & be used all year round. The designer got straight into it and with very little revisions required the play area design was soon agreed on. It incorporated bonded rubber mulch surfacing, leading all the way from the tarmac of the playground under all the equipment, allowing it to be used no matter what the weather.
The design manages in only a handful of products to meet the needs of a wide range of ages and abilities. Challenging Climbing and Adventure equipment for all ages. An exciting Decked Stage area for quiet reading, climbing, outdoor teaching and den making. As well as Musical Instruments and Blackboards for the creative children.
