Aberfeldy Installation

About a month ago, at the end of August/start of September, we installed a massive wetpour playground on a Willmott Dixon home development site in Aberfeldy, London.

The whole area took 11 days to install, however the project as a whole lasted for a couple of weeks. Unfortunately, the team came up against a number of set backs. The main two were to do with wetpour and weather.

  • Midway through installation, our supplier sent us some additional top layer wet pour, however it was the wrong colour!
  • The weather has a big impact on installations and unfortunately it impacted on this project – the issues with the weather forced us to cancel and move the project on a couple of occasions. 

However, the team powered through and managed to do an excellent job of the wetpour playground installation, and took some brilliant step-by-step photos along the way.

Photo 1 – The base wet pour has been installed across the whole area, and lines have been drawn out for the shapes and colours of the top layer design.

Photo 2 – The red and orange top layer wet pour has been installed and cut to shape. It was midway through this stage that we required additional materials.

Photo 3 – This photo was taken mid-way through installation of the yellow-cream colour.

Photo 4 – Finished project! At this point, other contractors had fitted the wooden ramp onto the area and planted some shrubbery for the finishing touches of the play area.
