Seesawing into Wood Wharf

Wood Wharf is a new neighbourhood in Canary Wharf, London. When the exciting development work completes in 2023 it will include offices, residential homes, community space, leisure and entertainment sites, and retail space.

As the neighbourhood will contain 3,300 homes, a new children’s play area has recently been designed and built by Willerby Landscapes, based in Edenbridge, Kent.

As part of the project, Willerby Landscapes engaged Crest Engineering Ltd to fabricate some of the play equipment, and Crest engaged Joseph Ash Medway to protect the steel.

You can see some of the photos here:

There were many elements to the play area, including bridges, a climbing frame, seating and a seesaw.

Joseph Ash Galvanizing collected the steel from Crest Engineering. It was taken to the Joseph Ash Medway plant so that our team could protect it for many years to come with a hot dip galvanized and powder coated finish. The powder coating elements alone amounted to about 200kg of mild steel and the client chose pink and pearl violet RAL 4011 as the colours. The steel was then delivered back to Crest Engineering’s site in Marden, Kent, by our delivery team.

Tim Palmer at Joseph Ash Medway said: “We were very proud to treat the steel for this wonderful project and it will be great to see the playground in use when the first residents of Wood Wharf begin to move in this Summer (COVID allowing of course). It was also great to work on a project for Crest Engineering Ltd, and we look forward to working with them again should another project arise.”
