Landstruct Landscape Construction, Glen Waverley (VIC)
CATEGORY: Commercial Construction up to $500,000
Landstruct Landscape Construction was engaged by Wesley College, Early Leaning Centre, to transform their existing school playground into a new nature-based playspace. Combining bespoke and natural elements the playspace comprises of an abundance of soft and hard landscaping.
Including custom built play structures, coloured and exposed concrete paving, rockwork, log and stump supply and installation, play towers, raised decking, plantings and synthetic turf installation, water pump and trickle fountain, bridge and many more elements. The Landstruct team was hard at work delivering a high-use, nature-based playground that fit the brief and achieved a high-quality and exciting playspace for the students.
“This playground uses natural materials cleverly mixed with the more constructed forms of playground equipment. The overall appearance is one of a clearing in a bush setting offering natural stimulation that is hard to find in other playgrounds. The attention to detail is admirable, considering the difficulties presented when working with natural materials: from the consistent grouting between the rocks preventing entrapment of little fingers to the seamless blending of 50-year old trees on the site with the newly constructed recycled materials. For small humans, this is a happy place created by clever use of simple materials well designed and constructed.”
