In August 2011 WFBD was awarded a contract to design and construct a water playground for the Forbes Shire Council in New South Wales.
The client specified that all the features including the pump house be designed and manufactured to reflect the natural surrounds, in view of which we chose a complementary colour scheme and included a custom-made dragonfly feature, bull rushes and spraying daisies in keeping with the lake-side locality.
We arrived on site on November 24th and handed the project over on the 5th of December.
WFBD Director, Tony Jones, and two other full-time personnel remained on site for the project’s duration, with earthworks, crane hire and concreting trades subcontracted while on site. The contract was completed in under two weeks.
We were able to complete the project in such a short time by employing a system whereby the majority of work is prefabricated in Perth and installed with minimal fuss on site. The result is significant cost savings to clients and substantially reduced lead times.
