What makes us different?

With our combined experience of designing, building, teaching and managing school grounds, we make sure we find the best solution for your site. We offer tailor-made, inspirational advice leading to pragmatic, cost effective solutions.

There is so much on offer when considering how to improve your outside space. If money is available but no plan, there is often an understandable decision to choose some kind of ‘equipment’.   Although well-designed open-ended use equipment can be of huge benefit and interest to the children, unfortunately so much on the market is not in this category. 

Improvements to grounds can be offered in so many other ways that are far more cost-effective and multi-dimensional.


By integrating all the knowledge and understanding about the outside space you have, and combining the opportunities available with what children and staff really need and want, you will achieve the most cost effective and rewarding design solution for your site.
