The project was a real team effort which lasted over 3 years. Not only was there many complex design challenges to overcome to create the 10 meter high play towers there were also complex manufacturing elements that our welders had to manage. The design process started with an initial site visit and concept sketches, through to 3D modelling and design for manufacture. 3D modelling is where you can see a project begin to come to life, it gives you a better understanding of scale and allows the designers to assess the feasibility of certain elements. Accessibility was something we felt was important within the project, so that all children felt welcome at Mayfield. Key elements were included in the design of the play equipment to ensure there was wheelchair accessibility, most notably a bridge directly into the towers, leading to an accessible slide.
