The Team General Contractor: Skanska USA Building Inc. Playground Contractor: Exterior Concepts, Inc. Electrical Engineer: Conway & Owen Civil Engineer: Eberly & Associates Structural Engineer: PES Structural Engineers Top, Right: This is the view from inside the main, tree house styled, play structure. Two 5' blue '850 Chameleon' slides (Miracle) allow children to descend to the ground. The whole structure is about 5' above the ground and stands roughly 12' tall. Four toy boxes can be seen hanging below the left side of the table. The side paneling is cleverly transparent to allow faculty and parents line-of-sight at all times and from all angles. Bottom, Right: The small cuts of tree in the foreground are 'Tree Cookies.' They are slices of real northern hardwood trees cut from a sustainable forest in New Hampshire. There are a total of 16 moving around throughout the school. Artificial turf surrounds safety surfaced pathways to limit injuries. A 'Hanging Amadindas' is seen dangling from the central playhouse.
