BRIEF A two stage development, staff at Northumbria University Nursery wanted to create two play spaces, each with its own play tower as the focal point, that focused on the development of fundamental movement skills and encouraged physical play. As always, we were happy to assist.
DESIGN As the first area was smaller, we were really able to make the most out of the space by custom creating their Jigsaw Play Tower to pack in lots of exciting play features into a compact design. Again for the second area, a Jigsaw Play Tower acted as the main focal point, this time without roofed platforms, whilst additional play equipment was added to utilise the larger area available. Items such as our Timber Playhouse is great for den-making but can also be used to store trikes when not in use. A number of our Toddle Town play items were also added, such as our Balance Bar, Timber Bridge and Balance Beam, to allow the children to develop their balance and co-ordination skills.
Across both areas, green and black fleck Wetpour was used to ensure all BSEN 1176 & 1177 safety requirements were met.
INSTALLATION A two part playground development, it was incredibly rewarding to see the final result once the second stage was completed.
Overall, each play space is impressive on its own and the combination of the two spaces is a fantastic resource for Northumbria University Nursery.
With play items of varying difficulty, children can progress through the play spaces as they grow and develop. What a great development to be a part of!
