Project Description

DCM have carried out a number of rooftop installations, none more spectacular then the roof installation at this site in London. Split over 4 levels, inducing the ground floor and with playdecks on all floors (allowing children on these floors to go straight out to play), this site is a stunning example of the skill that goes into creating our playground safety surfacing and our particular expertise in the area of the roof top installations.

This design was quite complex due to the number of graphics that required installations across the different levels. This included a range of different games to engage the children in active and educational play, including spell jump, turn hopscotch, mirror moves, hop and skip games as well as Dinner Time Mr Wolf. The end result is a stunning looking site, with welcoming, attractive and consistent designs across all the playground areas.

It's been tremendous having the opportunity to shape the environment in which the children will learn. The building has so many great features - how many schools can offer a roof terrace with stunning views across the Thames, which children can use as an outdoor play and learning area
