Council Playground Surfacing.

A playground is always more than the equipment, the ground it’s on and the activities that take place upon this ground. It is a place to meet, to share, to strive and learn. There’s a good reason why these areas are called ‘community assets’.

To ensure a quality final result Numat provides a complete overview for every playground undertaking, with design, installation, landscaping, project management and maintenance expertise.

We begin each project with a ‘no assumptions’ mindset. We assess every possible element of the project including, but not limited to, budget, timing and usage requirements. We then ensure the entire process is run in a ‘no surprises’ manner, delivering exacting professionalism from the first concept through to compliance, construction and completion.

Case Studies

Featured case study

Margaret Mahy Family Playground

The Margaret Mahy Park in Christchurch was undoubtedly the most exciting and challenging project we have worked on in recent years. As a major development post earthquake in the Garden City, it has also been one of the most important ones.

The origins of this work started back in 2013, when the ideas from over 6,000 Canterbury children were evaluated as part of a citywide initiative to design and build a world-leading urban playground in Christchurch. The winning entry was based on the stories of Margaret Mahy, an esteemed local author whose books have enraptured generations of Kiwi kids.

Featured case study

Waterview Park Playground

In the SuperCity of Auckland it should come as no surprise that the suburb of Waterview is now home to what can only be described as a SuperPlayground.

The main feature of the playground is the water play area, which sits close to a sandpit. This mixed-use area needed to withstand the impact of an army of pint-sized jumpers – the climbers and splashers – and cope with the ongoing effects of water and sand moving around on the surface.

Featured case study

Turner’s Reserve Playground

Upgrading a tired community playground involves input from council, designers, builders, and most importantly, the locals who will use it. With such a wide range of perspectives to consider achieving the right result requires far more than a one-size-fits-all approach. For Mt Roskill’s Turners Reserve upgrade it was a ‘mix and match’ approach that delivered the goods.

As part of the Puketāpapa Local Board’s initiative to upgrade green spaces and playgrounds in the district Turners Reserve was flagged as a location in dire need of a refresh.
