Holmer Green First School
What was needed?
Holmer Green First School invited the Red Monkey team back after a previous successful project completion. There were two areas in which the school wanted the design team to take a look at.
In the main area, the school wanted a climbing unit, road track, sand pit & nature zone.
In the other area the school was looking for a space where the children could garden, tend to chickens and go about quiet activities.
The challenge was that the school wanted to fit a lot into a small space without compromising what activities the children could use the equipment for.
What we did
Red Monkey designers chose to create a bespoke Climb & Play Tower for the main area. The unit needed to be dynamic enough to create a challenge for the children while also remaining small enough to fit an EPDM Road track around it.
Within this same area a nature zone was created using Wooden Planters, a Bug Table & Stools & a Mini Explorers Den. EPDM Wetpour was used throughout to create a safe & vibrant environment.
In the other area, the team included smaller zones within the space to designate different activities. The surface chosen for this area was a mixture of brown bonded mulch and play bark. Using these two surfaces not only kept the cost down, but also provided different textures. A Bug City, Magnify Table, various planters, and Bug Table & Stools were included in the design to create a nature school type feel.
From the customer
Red Monkey took two very run down outside areas and turned them into bright, inspiring places for our children to learn.
