Playscape Creations establishes new aquatics division

Playscape Creations establishes new aquatics division
September 27, 2017

With its 10 year history in delivering aquatic playgrounds (splashpads/spraygrounds), Playscape Creations has announced the establishment of a new Aquatic Division, with a totally new product line to complement its design and construction capability.

Able to cite several industry leading projects, including, most recently, the Keppel Kraken at Yeppoon and the Splash N Play area at Providence in the Ipswich suburb of Ripley, Playscape Creations created the new division to meet increased demand for aquatic playgrounds from property developers, councils, and commercial operators.

Playscape Creations’ long term manufacturing partners, Landscape Structures, recently released their Aquatix brand after acquiring the established firm ARC (Aquatic Recreation Company) and have investing heavily in product development and re-branding.

With a range of unique water features and sprays offering a complete line up of modern interactive components never seen before in the Australian market, the Aquatix range has a host of new features such as the Verso Splash and Water Limbo, offering cool aquatic activity with architectural aesthetics.

Heading Playscape Creations’ new division is Project Development Manager Shane Vardy.

Vardy is has a significant history with Playscape Creations having been instrumental as a playground consultant with the company from 2009 to 2014.

Commenting on his new role, Vardy explained “the transition into the aquatic portfolio with Playscape Creations is an exciting progression for me.

“It’s a great career move for me allowing all my skills in previous roles come together - my background in fabrication and construction, as well as over 10 years in commercial design and sales consultation is perfect for this technical project development position.”

Vardy joins Nick Veraart (Mechanical Engineer) and Peter Koch (Industrial Designer) in the Aquatic Division, providing a strong skill set across all facets of design and construction.
