Amspec at work: Space to Play!


Here at Amspec, we definitely believe in variety being the spice of life, which is part of the reason we never want to pigeonhole what we do. We love the diversity our clients bring to us with their bespoke design and build requirements and we thrive on the challenge that each different project presents.

Projects where the ‘end users’ of our design are destined to be children come with their own unique set of challenges, and are also a lot of fun creatively. Whereas an office refurbishment may be quite rigid in terms of what has to be included, a play area is generally much more flexible. From school classroom design to bespoke outdoor play areas, we have worked with a number of Manchester and Liverpool education sector design clients to provide building solutions that work the way children need them to.

We’ve also worked with Play Factore to fit out their fantastic play space at Trafford Park, located underneath the UK’s longest indoor ski & snowboard slope, the Chill Factore. The number one priority when designing such a space is safety, the well being of the children it’s designed for is obviously paramount. At the same time though, the finished product needed to be as colourful and attractive as it was functional and safe.

The completed design included laser tag, incorporated party rooms, a zipwire, a go-carting track, the largest play frame in Europe and the world’s tallest indoor slide. The result is a fantastic child friendly space that is fun, challenging, exciting, and innovative and of course, it looks great too.

The Play Factore project had to be completed to a very strict schedule in line with the facility’s opening day, and our team at Amspec worked to deliver exceptional results, on time and on budget. One of the benefits of having our own in house teams of both designers and manufacturers is that our ‘all under one roof’ style of business means we can streamline and more efficiently manage a project from start to finish.

We are proud to be an innovative provider of education sector design Manchester & Liverpool authorities need. We can design and build solutions for education sector refurbishment, for outdoor public play parks, for indoor play areas integrated into shopping centres and everything in between.

Whether the brief is for outdoor play areas or indoor school classroom design, our team can offer ideas, inspiration and of course their own expertise. Our in house design team have a wealth of experience in designing child friendly spaces and extensive technical knowledge to ensure that safety standards are always top priority.

When it’s school design Liverpool developers have on their mind, or any other education sector design Manchester councils need advice on, here at Amspec we want to be the first construction company you turn to. Whatever stage your project is at, we’d be delighted to hear from you and offer advice on how to move forward. Take a look at what our clients have to say, then please do get in touch.
