Overview

Duncan & Grove manufactured bespoke play equipment for Jellicoe Water Gardens, situated on the River Gade in Hemel Hempstead town centre.

Work undertaken

Erect Architecture, working in collaboration with project landscape architects HTA, designed a bespoke steel and timber play scape for the gardens. Erect provided conceptual designs, initial construction drawings, and a series of connection details engineered by Entuitive Engineers. From these Duncan & Grove created a 3D model and detailed construction drawings.

The build consisted of a mix of items manufactured in the company's workshop and then installed on site, and larger structures that were built around a CHS steel subframe on site.

Duncan & Grove managed the steel fabrication, installation, and on-site welding; installed the timber elements, the nets and ropes; and liaised with the independent play inspector for the structure to be passed as EN 1176 compliant.
