We design and build many other structures that don’t fall easily into
categories. We bring the same intelligent approach and creative execution to
these objects that we bring to all of our construction projects.
Sandpits are very popular with children
but can be a headache for the school
concerned. Our sandpits are site specific,
visually attractive and have integral
covers to keep the local wildlife out when
not in use. We often add functioning
cranes or decorative surrounds enhancing
usability. For another example see the
We make Bug Towers to provide habitats for insects whilst
allowing students to investigate and examine them.
Ball or water runs are also very useful playing and learning
installations, often making use of height changes in the site.
Planters feature widely in our work as a way of introducing
trees and shrubs into areas otherwise devoid of soft
landscaping. The striking Gaudi-esque planter shown at the
bottom right is a great example of this. It has a shaped
rendered finish on which we have applied mouldings and
mosaic complemented by bold planting.
