bespoke playground equipment hever castle 00

Project Description

Hever Castle is the Grade 1 listed childhood home of Anne Boleyn located in Hever, Kent.

FRLA produced the initial concept design for this large oak framed play castle. Duncan and Grove used this as the basis for our designs. We appointed an engineer, building consultant, play inspector and archaeologist to ensure the castle was structurally sound, complied with building regulations, was play safe, and the foundation works were conduct in a manner that protected any potential historical artefacts.

The traditional oak frame was manufactured in bays in our workshop and then erected on site. Oak floors, wall panels, stainless steel slides, tunnels, musical instruments, fabric panels, fireman’s poles, and a series of nets and tunnels were then installed.
