Following on from our previous victories for schemes such as Kew Gardens and Dalby Forest, eibe Play is thrilled to scoop a Silver Prize at this year’s annual Green Apple Awards, as well as a 2015 International CSR Excellence Award.
The ceremony, held at the Empire Casino in London on June 29th, was attended by Paul Redden, managing director and David Hibberd, head of design; it was Dave’s unique 3D designs that were a crucial factor in our integral involvement in the initial Primary Spaces development. As a result if his intuitive design, eibe created a bespoke product – a purpose-built MUGA that met the specification criteria of the client.
Sport England had invested £18 million of National Lottery funding to improve P.E. and sport facilities in primary schools around the country. eibe were a preferred supplier and undertook many projects across the country, including that all-important first one at Woodhill School in Greenwich, where Olympic heroine Christine Ohuruogu was the star guest. Recognition of our Primary Spaces partnership is a tribute to the entire team. Paul Redden says that winning never gets boring,
“We are absolutely chuffed to win another Green Apple Award. We have been entering for many years now and our success rate is very high. The Primary Spaces Project was very different from other entries, so it’s a testimony to our diversity and play offering versatility that we can win awards for a variety of reasons.”
Adding to our gloriously successful day, eibe also won an International CSR Excellence Award, an honour that is bestowed upon companies that are “Responsible and caring and work to help their colleagues, communities, customers and the environment.” This is eibe’s second victory in this increasingly important event.
