BRIEF With the merger of Ashdell Prep with Sheffield High School, it was agreed between the sites that two play areas at Ashdell Prep should be completely rejuvenated before the new school year starts in September. The brief was simple: to introduce a lot more colour through the incorporation of play equipment & safety surfacing.

DESIGN For this project we knew the customers wanted to add some serious colour to their outdoor play spaces so we really went for it! Vibrant play pieces such as our First Mate pirate ship and Carousel Mini not only have a lot of colour, but they also provide lots of play features such as slides, climbing panels and crawling tunnels; ideal for promoting physical play and developing fundamental movement skills. Smaller items such as Playboards, a storytelling area, Sandbox, Water Wall and bespoke playhouse were also added to provide a wider variety of play opportunities. Our Wetpour Safety Surfacing was used throughout both areas to again add colour but to also ensure all British and European safety standards would be met. We used a number of bright colours and even integrated designs such as hopscotches, mirror me stations and roadways to provide even more play opportunities.

INSTALLATION With the amount of play equipment and complexity of safety surfacing required for this project it was incredibly important that we worked closely with both Sheffield High School and Ashdell Prep to ensure a smooth installation and successful final outcome.
Everyone collaborated and worked well together on this development and it definitely shows!
Well done to all involved!
