Brief Hill House School were looking to replace their existing equipment with something to promote outdoor fitness for the pupils. They also wanted to incorporate a bright and exciting roadway to really add the wow factor and stimulate their SEN students.
Design We installed a number of swings, including our round Basket Swing, which we felt were perfect for Hill House. They are great for children with special needs or who need that little bit more assistance; with the size & design allowing them to be accompanied during play if necessary and the materials being able to withstand even the most enthusiastic play . To ensure all of the needs of Hill House were met, we worked with an external supplier who provided specialised fitness equipment and we decided to make it a real feature of the playground and highlight the area with our colourful and hardwearing Wetpour Safety Surfacing. As well as being able to integrate intricate designs into the surfacing, Wetpour provides an all-weather playground surface that is suitable for wheelchair and less mobile users. We decided to incorporate a large roadway design into the Wetpour safety surfacing at Hill House, and provide design details such as stop signs, zebra crossings, roundabout signs and parking bays to provide hours of fun for the children whilst also teaching the importance of road safety.
Installation Planning and preparation were paramount on this project due to the scale and complexity of the Wetpour design. Spending so much time meticulously prepping the area was daunting, but necessary, and the outcome was incredible. The skill of our installers and the quality of the material used has produced an outstanding vibrant all-weather play area that will last for years. It was a pleasure to be involved with such an impressive project and its a testament to our installers.
