Context

Working on behalf of Kompan, RTC Safety Surfaces was tasked with creating a new play area at Westfield Shopping Centre. The company has worked at a number of shopping centres in recent years including creating a ‘biodiversity themed play area’ at Westfield Stratford, and a temporary indoor display at another Westfield site.

Challenge

Unlike previous Westfield projects, this play area was to follow a Marvel Avengers theme, with a wet pour design that included masks, logos and items belonging to the famous superheroes. The safety surfacing design put forward by Kompan had been officially approved by members of the Marvel Avengers franchise, and so it was critical that the RTC Safety Surfaces team was able to replicate the graphics as closely as possible.

Solution

Drawing upon its previous experience, RTC's operations team easily organised all of the logistics needed to carry out the project within the strict deadline. All of the wet pour graphics were hand-drawn and cut by the team on site. Some of the graphics within this project presented an extra challenge as they were positioned under pieces of play equipment. The team had to work carefully to ensure that not only were the graphics completed to a high standard but also that the play equipment was not affected by the install.

Outcome

By working carefully but steadily, the team managed to complete its install after spending 12 days on site. The Avengers themed playground is now a popular new attraction at the shopping centre, and the client is thrilled with the overall finish.
