playground design Case Studies

If you can imagine it, we can probably build it! Because we design, install and manufacture playgrounds, we have examples of every kind of project you can imagine. To help you hone in on case studies of relevance to you, please select a sector focus across retail, leisure and tourism, schools, parks and public spaces. Look at some of our tried and tested designs to inspire and shape your playscape. Here you can find examples of playgrounds we’ve created since 2000 – forgive some of the image quality – technology has moved on since then!
