Construction & Surfacing Contractors - Company Message
 
The Log Cabin
Special Needs Centre
 

This contract was originally to resurface an old playground after a new facility was built on the old site, by the end of the job we had not only resurfaced the playground but installed new play equipment, including a wet play area and a log wall enclosed sand pit, a multi use ball court, disabled ramp and a large log cabin which can be used as an external class room, basically the area was empty with just building waste from the new building, with the carefully chosen planting from our landscapes department and the sleeper raised beds and steps I think you would agree the site looks remarkable....... look out for our hand carved oak lion!
