Wheelchair Accessible Ramp

A school near Guildford required a wheelchair access ramp to get to the play area. We had to design the ramp to achieve this so that it complied with all regulations regarding gradients and turning platforms. Nine inch wide walls were built, the ramps were block paved and powder coated rails installed. We also built some concrete steps running up to the same play area.

Astro Turf

Large courtyard garden within a school which has been transformed into an all weather Astro area.  This area is open to all school children and previously was covered in bark but when it rained all the mud and bark was trampled into the corridors of the school.  The permanent maintenance free solution was to put down Astro Turf and subsequently the school has become much cleaner and tideland we have now been contacted to undertake further Astro transformations within the school.

Hinchley Wood Scool – New Outdoor Eating Area

Our remit was to create an outdoor area for the kids to eat their lunch using a Brindle Block paved area. We worked around the canopy plus we laid the turf and the result has added a new dimension to the luchtime dining experience. This has allowed the kids to eat their lunch on benches placed on a hard surface rather than a grass area. It also has allowed the school to provide a further entertainment area for parents and pupils alike.

School Bumps

Hinchley Wood School in Esher requested a ramp to slow down traffic and it also needed to allow disabled access. Therefore the ramp needed to be at threshold level and hence the ramp is quite a statement, which effectively slows down the traffic!

Long Jump Runways for Secondary School

Our remit was to refurbish the long jump runways which were in a state of disrepair. The pit had been refurbished the year before but the runways were not fit for purpose. After a weeks worth of hard work we restored them to their former glory and seed the the soil to eventually create a lovely grass area between the two runways.

Avenue of Astro Turf Plus Block Paving

This avenue between 2 classroom blocks used to be a mud ridden dust bowl as the tables were set on the grass which due to their weight could never be moved and hence no grass grew. We transformed that by installing a really good quality Astro turf throughout this area, achieving a lush green finish throughout the year. This not only looks great for the school and encourages the children outside but it also reduces the amount of mud and soil from being traipsed around the school thus reducing cleaning costs.

We are also block paving specialists and have installed numerous pathways and seating areas throughout the school and this is one such an example.

Sixth Form Courtyard Area

We have laid thousands of square metres of Astro turf throughout schools and in this example we have transformed a sixth form courtyard garden from a dark concrete jungle into a clean vibrant area with a number of tables and chairs where the students can chat and relax in downtime. The area becomes maintenance free allowing furniture to remain there without killing off any grass underneath.

Nursery School Playground

We updated the existing Astro turf which had become tired, worn out and dangerous for the Primary school kids. The drainage was always an issue and therefore we installed a channel drainage system which alleviated any flooding as it was linked in to the main drains and soakaways.

Large Playground and Play Equipment

This large play area was constructed over the summer of 2021 and due to the apparatus, we had to adhere to a strict health and safety policy of having the correct safety matting for the fall heights. Special rubberised matting was installed around the apparatus and under the Astro and the result is a fantastic play area for the primary school kids.
