Due to delays because of the unseasonable weather, installation dates were put back twice, but, in November 2009, everything was ready to go.
With the help of a family friend, Sovereign was able to organise local accommodation for the installation team within the project budget. Sovereign then arranged the transport of the play equipment and the installers to Switzerland. Sovereign also dealt with the payment of import duties with Swiss customs.
The landscapers carried out all the pre-installation preparation of the ground area prior to Sovereign starting on-site.
An interpreter was on-hand to help ensure that all went smoothly. Fortunately, the autumn weather was good and Sovereign was able to complete the installation in just three days.
The bespoke design boasts two thumper towers. One of the towers has been redesigned into a mirror image of the original version, and has been positioned along side the original. The towers have been additionally enhanced with a set of monkey bars that link the two towers together.
The thumper tower combines many features seen in Sovereign’s tower model range. The slide, ladder, fireman’s pole and the rock climber, provide a range of challenges that inspires endless possibilities for imaginative play. In addition, the installation sports a further deck area that gives space and capacity to satisfy older and more active children – perfect for the James’s children as they grow.
Once Sovereign completed work, the landscapers finished off the area under the equipment with the addition of play grade bark and log edging.
