PROJECT: Campus seating replacementCLIENT: Hilliard State SchoolSCOPE OF WORKS: New outdoor furniture for school area

Hilliard State School is a Coeducation primary school which is nestled in the vibrant and large suburb of Alexandra Hills on South Brisbane’s Bayside.

The time had come for some new outdoor furniture at Hilliard State School which sparked the P & C into action to raise some funds to procure some new benches and sunbeds for the students to utilise.

A short google search led them to Park Furniture Australia where they were pleased to see the range of recycled plastic furniture on offer. Some time ago the school implemented their School Environment Management Plan which aims to reduce the footprint made by the school. By choosing recycled plastic furniture they see this as a win in two parts:

The raw product is sustainably sourced, in fact it is remade plastic bags, something that the primary aged kids at school can relate to.

The ongoing maintenance of these benches and sunbeds is minimal which means that we do not have to use chemicals or manpower to maintain the product in the playground.

A school representative spoke with Park Furniture Australia. “Our kids really enjoy these seats and we see them playing in and around the area where all nine seats are situated. They really get a lot of use out of them every day.”

The process behind selecting the product, working out the customisations and then placing the order all the way through to installation was really smooth. We did hit a road bump with the powder coating lead time but Park Furniture Australia kept us in the loop for the entire duration and they could not have been more helpful.
