Southwark Council contacted Playcubed as they had a large unused cobbled mound which was part of one of the estates. As a result, they wanted to improve the outdoor playground in the area. So, they asked if we could make this into a play mound!
 
We came up with some great ideas and designs. These included a bespoke slide, safety climbing feature with grip handles and ropes. Also, we made specially moulded mounds to use as stepping stones to get to the top. The complete mound was then covered in a coloured soft play surface with a mountain feature design.
 
Southwark loved the design but needed checking with an independent outdoor playground inspector. They happily signed the project off and for Playcubed to have the go ahead.
 
We completed the project in the middle of the first National Lockdown due to the Coronavirus. Understandably this was an added challenge. However it was one that Playcubed was more than up to. As a result we completed the project safely and on time whilst keeping to all safety guidelines and precautions.


“I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you and the rest of the Play Cubed team for all of your hard work and professionalism over the past year.

In what has been the most challenging of times for everyone you have all been a great help to me, Southwark Council and our residents. The numerous excellent play improvement projects that you have delivered for us have been so well received by residents and have brought joy and fun during this difficult time.

We feel really proud of the new facilities that you have created and I’m sure these will really make a difference to the lives of young people (and parents) in those areas you have worked in – especially on the Brandon estate where residents have been through some particularly sad and shocking events in recent times.

You and your team have worked very hard to deliver exactly what we wanted and have done so with minimal fuss or disruption.

We all really appreciate your efforts and hope that we will get the opportunity to work with you again in the future.”
