Jupiter Play and Inclusive Play worked together with Chelmsford City Council, Essex County Council and FACE (Families Acting for Change in Essex) to create a WOW play space that was completely wheelchair accessible as part of their vision to provide more quality and equal play opportunities for children.
The requirement from the families was to give children with special needs a chance to access really high points and have a feeling of elevation and risk that they may not ordinarily get to feel.
The client was keen to create a unit that would allow children to be elvated 2.5 meters off the ground. A tall order when meeting the regulations of a 1:12 slope for accessibility. This was a challenge Jupiter Play could meet, as our partners at FHS have the expertise and knowledge in creating bespoke products that meet all regulations and this allows Jupiter Play to focus on the creative design work.
