Batmans Hill PRU Tipton gallery.
Like many of our customers, Batmans Hill PRU in Tipton had a relatively small budget available to develop their outdoor play area but needed something which was more accommodating and flexible for the children to use, even at times when the weather was not very good. In particular they wanted the ability to let the children go outside for fresh air and play under cover throughout the year but the existing outdoor garden area did not offer any such facility.
We undertook a preliminary ‘no obligation’ site visit to assess the scope of the Batmans Hill PRU garden area and discussed our proposals with the Headteacher and her staff. By offering a bespoke, tailor-made service, Martell Play and Leisure were able to accommodate their budget and commenced with the installation of a 4m hexagonal outdoor classroom, complete with half shiplap timber sides, internal smooth-faced decking floor and a feature brush reed roof covering with heavy-duty external grade plywood and waterproof membrane underneath.
To complete the project we installed a decking ‘easy access’ ramp leading across the grass from the outdoor classroom to the adjacent pathway. This meant the outdoor classroom could be used at anytime during the year, irrespective of the weather conditions, come rain or shine.
The outdoor classroom we supplied to Batmans Hill PRU was constructed using only the best Scandinavian 5ths kiln dried redwood, with radius corners to prevent splinter hazards, and pressure treated with Tanalith® E, giving a 15 year guarantee against fungal decay and insect attack.
If you have an outside play area that is not giving you the all-year-round facilities you need for your children then contact Martell Play and Leisure today, your local supplier and installer.
