The Owner of Lets Play Nursery in Hall Green had an under-developed garden area which they wanted us to view and to offer our professional ideas and solutions to transform it into a safe and fun place for the children to explore, role play and burn up some energy. They also wanted to have the ability for the children to use the outdoor area even when the weather was not so kind so a custom-made canopy solution was also required.
After our initial site survey, provided on a free-of-charge and no obligation basis, we met with Owner of Lets Play Nursery and discussed the various options they could consider to transform the garden area into the child-friendly and engaging environment they wanted to achieve.
To do this we started by completely clearing the garden of all the old equipment and a brick built sandpit and then levelling the surface all-round. We then constructed a new triple-wall polycarbonate roof canopy, spanning the rear of the building. This allowed the children to access the fresh air from the nursery patio doors even when the weather is not good. Next we constructed and installed a custom-made role play house with a front door, two shuttered windows, and a decking veranda with palisade fence to the sides. The role play house was topped with a feature brush reed roof which had external grade WBP plywood and waterproof membrane underneath.
In the centre of the new play area we constructed a custom-made multi-activity play tower which featured an infant slide, a rock wall ramp, steps with safety rails and a fireman’s pole. A new digging and growing planter with trellis attachment was installed against an old wall and activity play panels were mounted under the canopy. The project was completed with the laying of black EPDM wet pour safety surface giving an all-year-round play facility.
All of the equipment 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.
