Proludic worked in partnership with North Northants Council to refurbish ten play areas located throughout the market town of Wellingborough.

With the council having over 30 play areas within the borough it was essential that the proposed playground equipment was low maintenance and manufactured with the most durable materials. Therefore, the play equipment chosen (from our DiaboloIXO and Biibox ranges) embraced robust galvanized stainless-steel structures and high-pressure laminate panels.

To ensure the children’s imaginations were ignited the designs used bright vibrant wetpour surfaces. The playground design also included different themes such as castles and bugs to ensure the children could go to each site and have a different play experience.

Proludic also ensured that at each site all children of all abilities were catered for, so inclusive trampolinesroundaboutsswings, and play panels we included. 65 items of inclusive play equipment were installed! This represented over 70% of all equipment delivered on the project, catering for users with physical and sensory impairment.

The client was extremely satisfied with the results, particularly as Proludic delivered all projects ahead of schedule and within the half a million-pound budget allocated. When the project was completed 90 pieces of playground equipment had been installed across the borough that could accommodate over 600 children at any one time!

North Northants Council (formally the Borough Council of Wellingborough) has worked with Proludic on various play area refurbishments in Wellingborough.  The parks have been refurbished to a very high standard and are now colourful and modern, with equipment for different ages in all parks to encourage children to be challenged and entice them to play. Proludic has been professional throughout the process on all projects keeping the Council informed of all timescales, issues, developments along the way. The general public has been very pleased with the new play areas and equipment.  Proludic dealt with any problems and issues promptly to ensure delivery of the play areas on time, it has been a pleasure to work with Proludic.
