École des Pionniers, Terrebonne, QC. Dimensions: 5435 sq ft. Product: Carpell Eco System
Carpell rises to the challenge with the successful installation of this colourful and intricate playground surface, located at the recently constructed École des Pionniers in Terrebonne, QC. Landscape - Architect (AECOM Inc.) Alexandre Gresset's design combines green spaces, rest and play areas with fun activities that promote learning and encourage social development for the neighbourhood children.
The 505 square metre ( 5435 sq. ft.) outdoor area incorporates play surfaces marked with interactive games such as alphabets grids, snakes and ladders, number serpents, hopscotch, and tic-tac-toe pads. A large area is reserved for team sports: basketball, mini-soccer, dodge ball, four corners, and a running track. Rope bridges, hoops, blocks, and beams link a range of innovative play modules suitable for toddlers aged , 2 to 5 years, and for older children, aged 6 to 12 years.
An attractive canopy structure and the planting of trees make it possible to offer shaded areas for play. A designated music area and a wall with drawing boards will encourage our young artists.
The project's requirement for durable and eco-friendly surfaces comprised of low impact materials that can tolerate the stresses of an active playground made Carpell Eco System the product of choice. Head installer Éric St-Germain and his team, installed this large and beautifully designed surface over a 12 day period.
