Playground packages – Now even more inclusive!

In 2017, Timber Creations built a lot of full playground packages, mainly for schools and councils, which were specially designed for the space, constructed and installed to the playground standards. Along the way, we learned a lot about what people need – not only in their final playground, but also throughout the process of designing and building a unique space.

 

In 2018, we are now offering a full range of services standard in our packages, to make the process of getting a fully unique natural playground easier.

  • Concept brainstorming to hone in on what is needed in the space
  • Full design with fallzones and sizes
  • Pre-certification of designs to ensure there are no unseen potential hazards
  • Custom handmade timber play elements and sculptures
  • Provision of retaining walls and softfall
  • Delivery to local areas (and agreed non-local!) and full installation to the Australian Standards (AS4685)
  • Play safety report and certification
  • Warranty and Guarantee
  • Maintenance schedule, to keep it looking great for years to come!

Process – Building a beautiful timber creature

Why are our timber creatures so visually appealing?


What many people don’t realise is that the team at Timber Creations spend a lot of time looking at timber.
… Well, that might seem obvious actually, but I mean before we even think about the building part!

The right piece for the right project can be hard to find. Amongst all the durable recycled timber we collect from discarded trees, each piece has a unique shape, pattern and texture.
The artists at Timber Creations consider these unique features of every piece, until the vision becomes clear.

 

This is what gives Timber Creations our unique aesthetic appeal – a huge amount of time and effort goes into simply selecting the right piece of timber, so that the final creation is a cohesive, stunningly original artwork.
Once the timber has been selected, the artists take note of all the distinctive elements and imperfections that make the timber perfect for the sculpture, and use them as features in the work, to create an organic, natural and visually appealing piece that appeals to our biological senses.
The result is an exquisitely unique creature, just brimming with its own character – looking like it was biologically grown from a child’s imagination!

You won’t get that from a manufacturing assembly line!
