I suppose with a name like Monkey Puzzle Playgrounds it would be easy to assume that is all we do, well you’d be wrong. Of course the origins of the company were focused on installing safe playgrounds primarily to enhance our nationwide network of Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries. But with success came expansion into different sectors, one of those was sports surfacing.
Possibly our biggest contract in this field was with the Premier League’s Southampton FC.
In the close season before the 2012/13 season, we fully renovated the pitch side running track at the St Mary’s Stadium, home of the “Saints”.
UK Managing Director, Will Campbell recalls, “To succeed in winning the contract to regenerate the pitch perimeter at a Premier League football stadium is a major breakthrough for the company”.
Will, a lifelong Saints fan, began negotiations with the St. Mary’s outfit back in March 2011, with agreement to commence work in May of 2012 and had to be completed within a tight schedule, alongside other stadium improvements and scheduled pre-season friendlies.
“The area in question is very large and we would have preferred more time to complete the works, especially as it had to be carried out during one of the wettest summers on record. Even though the inclement weather caused delays we were determined to deliver the works on time and to our usual high standards”, added Campbell”.
But it didn’t stop there. We continue to install sports surfacing up and down the country, with golf courses and Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAS) in particular, keen to install our safety surfaces.
