1. We Listen

When it comes to understanding your needs, we prioritise effective communication. If a site visit is suitable, we’ll coordinate a meeting at a time that suits you. During this visit, we’ll actively listen to your goals, engage in discussions, and conduct a comprehensive site survey. Whether you’re envisioning a complete playground transformation or seeking enhancements for a specific play area, we’re eager to visit you and truly understand your vision.

2. We Design

We recognize the importance of taking the learning experience outdoors. Embracing a collaborative design approach, we work closely with you to create innovative solutions, even within constraints of space or budget. If off-the-shelf equipment doesn’t fit your requirements, we’re committed to designing customised solutions tailored to your needs.

3. We Make

We take pride in turning conceptual designs into enduring realities through quality craftsmanship. We use premium materials sourced exclusively from reputable UK-based companies. This commitment ensures durability, safety, and support for local industries, creating outdoor spaces that stand the test of time.

4. We Transform

We solidify our commitment to customer satisfaction. Once installation dates are agreed upon, we coordinate access arrangements with you. Our experienced installers, equipped with DBS certificates, bring our designs to life. Upon completion, you’ll receive a comprehensive Customer Manual, inclusive of guarantees and advice on inspecting and maintaining the equipment. Going forward, we offer maintenance services to ensure the longevity of your investment.

5. You Enjoy!

Our ultimate goal is to bring joy to the end-users—children. Picture the delight on their faces as they explore and utilise their new playground. It’s not just about creating spaces; it’s about cultivating environments where children can learn, play, and thrive. With our customer-focused approach, we aim to bring smiles and enjoyment to the forefront of every playground experience.

Yes, all our products are guaranteed. The length of the guarantee varies depending on the composition of the product e.g. the rope items in our Fitness and Adventure Trails are guaranteed for 3yrs, while the timber elements are guaranteed for 15yrs against insect infestation and rot.  We can provide full details of all the guarantees on request.

The speed at which we can initiate work depends on the type of product you order. Lead times vary for different items, but generally, we can turn around projects within a range of 1 week to 6 weeks. It’s important to note that school holidays are our busiest periods, and these slots tend to get booked up sooner. If your project requires installation during school holidays, we recommend booking as early as possible to secure your preferred dates.

It’s worth mentioning that all our teams are DBS checked, ensuring the safety and security of working in educational environments. Additionally, our teams are capable of working on-site during term time if the school permits. We understand the importance of minimising disruptions to the learning environment, and we work in collaboration with the school to plan and execute installations in a way that is least disruptive to daily activities.

In summary, the timeline for starting work depends on the specific product and scheduling constraints, but we are committed to accommodating your needs and working closely with you to ensure a smooth and efficient installation process.

It will depend on the product and the skills of the people who will be doing the installation. You should also consider who will be responsible if something  goes wrong at a later date e.g. the item breaks or someone hurts themselves while playing on it.  Please do call to discuss and we will advise whether we think it’s appropriate depending on the particular product you want to purchase.
