NBP is committed to embedding Sustainability into our core business and providing products and services that contribute positively to local communities. We have an in-house qualified Sustainability Manager who sets out our policies and oversees our Sustainability initiatives and ongoing performance.
Our main Sustainability Objectives are:
Collaborative Design and delivery process
Nature Based Play prides itself on working collaboratively with clients and the local community. An inclusive process allows for the Nature Based Play design to be reflective of the local site and community needs, whilst providing community ‘ownership’ of the constructed Nature Space.
Collaboration and partnerships are very important to NBP, as the process of developing these Nature Scape projects is fundamental in delivering quality products and outcomes for the client and local community.
The Nature Based Play spaces we create bring many benefits to the local community and the kids (and carers) that enjoy them. As a business, we support local communities through providing in-kind and collaborative support to their projects, helping them to realise their vision of Nature Play for their community.
Research into Outdoor Nature Play and Learning has shown many benefits to kids’ overall wellbeing when enjoying these quality designed spaces. Because of these benefits there is a definite movement into providing more of these quality natures play spaces into local communities and schools. Plus, the kids just love them!!!!
We like to think our Nature Based Play Spaces are “NICE” places for kids to enjoy and explore:
Created using natural timbers, features, forms, reflecting the natural environment.
Designs encourage and enable kids to play and co-operate together.
Provide free flowing play spaces to explore, imagine and shape.
Allow for subtle learning of the natural environment, and their own capabilities.
NBPs proven quality designs, with the use of natural materials, educational and learning elements can and do improve:
Interactive Social Skills
Positive Risk Taking
Kids confidence and capabilities
Kids Creativity and Educational learning skills
Respect and knowledge of the Natural Environment
Respect and knowledge for Aboriginal Cultural (with Aboriginal Design elements)
Improved mood and happiness
