Project: Huncote Primary School - Leicestershire

The Brief...

 

The existing tarmac playground was used for playtimes, netball and football. The tarmac had become quite slippery and needed regular cleaning and line marking carried out on a regular basis. The entire area was prepped and drainage holes were punctured into the surface to remove any standing water and improve drainage. A multi-coloured needle-punched sand-filled carpet was installed over the entire area. The new surface outlined the netball court and also incorporated bespoke graphics including hopscotch, number turtle and a 1-100 multi coloured number grid.

The Feedback...
 

The children are thrilled with their new interactive surface, it has revitalised playtime. The number of accidents and bumps and scrapes reported has decreased since the new safety surface was installed. The ongoing maintenance costs have decreased and a simple leaf blower keeps the area looking great all year round.
