Porter Green Development – Community Playspace 2020


Client: Antrim Construction Company Limited

Completion Date: May 2020

Location: Porter Green Development, Ballyhampton Road, Larne

Comment: This Play space was provided for the residents of Porter Green. A new housing development built by Antrim Construction Company Ltd located at Ballyhampton Road, Larne BT40.  This community play space was welcomed by local children and members of the wider community, as a much needed recreational and leisure space. The design was in keeping with the spacious modern surroundings and needed to be visually appealing with its position as a focal point in the recreational area, as well as serving children from 2 years up to teenagers incorporating ‘an inclusiveness for all design’ and variety of play value. We introduced our Haffey Wetpour surfacing to the play items whilst ensuring no step nor level changes throughout the expanding space served by tarmac pathway network access into the space providing access for all. The entire site is enclosed with a mesh fence with heavy planting to ensure safety and security for users and carers. All play items have been certified and installed to EN1176 and play surfaces EN1177
