In the last quarter, we have worked on some great projects, and we are feeling as proud as ever of our installation teams. As we head into the last quarter of the year, we thought it was about time for the quarterly review.

One project that got all of RTC excited, was the chance to install surfacing in London’s Olympic Park.

Working on behalf of The Outdoor Gym Company, we installed the safety surfacing for the first gym in the UK to be made from recycled aerosol bottles. The gym was created using 2,500 used aerosol cans, donated by the public as part of a sustainability initiative by Right Guard. Our team relished the challenge of recreating the famous Right Guard logo within the surfacing.

Another exciting project was Mayfield Park. We installed colourful wet pour, rubber mulch and Enviro-Pave, creating graphics and pathways throughout the play area. The park also boasted bespoke pieces of play equipment, including a large wooden plane.

Travel and modes of transport are always popular designs in play areas, and in keeping with the aviation theme, we went on to recreate the Queen Elizabeth Air Craft Carrier in wet pour!

We were asked by Proludic to install the surfacing for the new play area at the Fleet Air Arm Museum. The site was based near the busiest military air station in Europe and spanned over 15m² Along with the black background and line graphics, we also created a stealth fighter jet from wet pour, within the surface.

We also completed a small project at RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk, repairing their existing surfacing and helping them to maintain their safety standards.

Another smaller project we completed was at the New Invention Infant School, in Walsall. We installed just under 30m² of Enviro-Pave, our SUDS compliant surface, creating a small non-slip pathway for the school.

Over the years we have become known for working in restricted areas – whether that be installing a playground on a roof top, or even in a shopping centre! (You can learn more here)

This time round it was installing wet pour inside a building, at Big Rock Climbing Centre in Milton Keynes, to help keep the climbing enthusiasts safe. They were so happy with their new surface, they shared it on Facebook.

We also installed safety surfacing for another indoor climbing wall – this time in France! Along with an installing surfacing around an indoor swimming pool in Norfolk.

One project however, that was definitely not restricted was the playground at Rigby Hall School. We installed over 900m² of safety surfacing with a design that included lettering, multi-lane roadways, roundabouts and rivers in time for when the students returned for the new term.

Another larger project was the splash pad at Willen Lake in Milton Keynes. Our team spent seven days on the site installing over 900m² of wet pour safety surfacing in multiple colours and shapes. The new attraction is sure to be lots of fun for all of the visitors!

We’ve loved working on such a range of projects in the past few months and cannot wait to start work on our up and coming sites. If you need any advice on safety surfacing, or would like a quick quote, please just get in touch.
