Like much of this year, the final quarter of 2019 has flown by with our 12 installation teams working all over the UK and beyond on a variety of projects big and small.

One of the largest projects we worked on this quarter was in Edgware, London. The project included over 1,380m² of wet pour safety surfacing in a bright and colourful design.

Our account managers were involved in this project from conception to completion, advising the architects and eventually overseeing the install. As such it was great for them to see the play area finally come to life, knowing that it will be such a great addition to the local area.

Another one of our install teams were also busy in London, this time in Hillingdon working on behalf of Kompan. Our team installed over 440m² of wet pour, which included bright colourful areas that would undoubtedly catch the eye of passers-by.

Another project we worked on in London included creating a red wet pour surface with 260 linear metre line markings laid over mounds. The play area had been designed for children up to six years old, which would serve a high proportion of the local families.  Local councillor Olu Babatola said: “We are thrilled with the new toddler play area, and all the fun and laughter it will bring to Moorings toddlers and youngsters.”

We’ve also had a number of teams working on MOD sites across Winchester in recent months. In total our teams installed over 1,040m² across three sites, each with bespoke graphics ranging from fairy-tale forest themes to ancient Aztecs and intergalactic escapades.

We train all of our installation teams in-house, as such they were able to hand draw and cut every graphic on site to ensure it mirrored the design provided by our customer.

Further afield, we also returned to the Isle of Man on behalf of Kompan. We installed over 360m² of green wet pour at Athol Park. Athol Park was refurbished following a consultation between Port Erin Commissioners and local people, with Kompan creating a new inclusive play area ensuring children of all abilities are able to enjoy the facilities.

One team travelled even further afield, to carry out an install at an indoor climbing centre, this time in Sens, France. As we are the only UK based safety surfacing company to regularly carry out installs abroad, our Operations team were about to ensure the project ran smoothly and efficiently.

In the meantime, we also had a team working in Mcjerrow Park, Lockerbie. They installed over 500m² of wet pour and Enviro-Pave. Our Enviro-Pave is hardwearing and non-slip, as well as SUDS complaint, making it the perfect choice for pathways in a busy park.

In Wales, one of our teams was busy creating a roman themed play area in wet pour. Working on behalf of Playdale we installed over 250m² of surfacing that included graphics such as helmets, olive wreaths and a temple.

Finally, what would the approach to Christmas be, without the mention of chocolate! One of our teams headed to Birmingham to install almost 300m² of wet pour safety surfacing at Cadbury World. Cadbury World is Birmingham’s largest leisure attraction, with over 500,000 visitors each year – so it is great to think all of visiting children will now have a brand new play area to enjoy as well.

As we head into a new year, and a new decade, we would like to thank all of our customers for their continued support over the last 12 months. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year!
