The Head Teacher approached us as he was embarking on a playground project for KS2. They wanted equipment that would physically challenge the children and encourage them to develop their skills. The playground faced onto a main road so it was important to them to establish an area that had the added wow factor! We recommended a Zenith Max tower system as well as our one of our popular Jungle Climbers.
DESIGN To add the wow factor at Layton, we opted for the Fort Apache in a rustic design to compliment the natural surroundings of the rest of the playground. With a variety of challenging play features on multi levels it ticked all the boxes. In addition we added in our Jungle Climber Maxi, with its rounded timbers and natural colours fitted perfectly with the design. Rubber mulch surfacing was placed to create separate play zones and add to the overall attraction of the playground. We lay a pathway in green mulch and created a blue splash design around the Jungle Climber and Fort Apache to add an extra element of fun.
INSTALLATION The grounds at Layton Primary offered a large grassed space to create the new playground, primarily for the Key Stage 2 pupils. Our sales and design team worked closely with the school to produce an innovative, practical and exciting playground proposal, consisting of new equipment as well as an intricate surfacing design.
All the teams involved in this project worked extremely hard to ensure a smooth installation that provided no disruption to the day to day running of the school. The end result was fantastic.
The colours of the equipment and the surfacing complimented the school build perfectly, definitely delivering the wow factor they were looking for! I was very proud to be a part of this project a big well done to all involved.
