Recent Builds With several designers and three build teams, Wheelscape is constantly building some of the newest and most exciting skateparks. We have recently completed a £750,000 citywide project in Liverpool consisting of six facilities in total. These facilities were spread across three sites and included three skateparks, a mini wheels park and two BMX tracks. This amounted to over 2,200m² of finished concrete. One of the parks, ‘Evertro’ in Everton Park, was the UK’s first glow in the dark skatepark designed in collaboration with leading contemporary artist, Koo Jeong A. It has since received international media coverage from The Guardian, The Creators Project, Vice and more. Rivermead Skatepark in Swindon had several issues leading to more than one change of site. Wheelscape have stayed with them during this journey, re-designing where necessary to suit. The site for Hampson Park Skatepark in Stevenage was an old cycle track. We utilised the existing site falls to provide the most economical scheme for this project resulting in more skatepark for the end user.

Design Wheelscape are skilled and proficient at undertaking site visits/surveys, feasibility studies, drainage design and landscape planning, which all feed into us creating the right design for you. With community led consultation at the heart of our design process, Wheelscape make the effort to listen to all involved parties. We hold a range of different consultation workshops from presentations to the wider community, to focused design detail reviews with clients and the core user group. Taking on-board all perspectives and opinions and guiding them with our experience and expertise we aim to ensure the most economic site specific design that will be inclusive, engaging and enjoyable to all for years to come. Our experienced design team includes Architects, Designers, engineers and artists who are all keen skatepark users themselves. They will work closely and openly with you to provide initial sketch ideas, 3D models, photorealistic visualisations and full construction drawings that allow you to see what has been designed is what will be built.
Portfolio Wheelscape have produced some of the highest quality skateparks which are enjoyed by users from all around the globe. We have built the 1st capsuled full pipe in Europe, the biggest indoor concrete park in the UK and recently our design and build in Stockton on Tees was opened by Royalty. Wheelscape have designed and built some of the most unique and innovative skateparks around and are always looking to push the envelope using new and exciting features including the use of locally salvaged and recycled materials where possible to give skateparks their own individual character. Weâ€™ve built skateparks in schools both home and abroad and have enjoyed seeing them being included in regular lesson and exercise time. Wheelscape has designed and built over 100 projects worldwide and this is a brief look at some of our many projects. Please visit our website to see a more extensive list.

International Builds Designing and building abroad has given Wheelscape the opportunity to work in partnership with local companies from diverse locations. We have learnt and gained valuable knowledge from these experiences which has further developed our skills. This has given us an enhanced understanding of working in a wide range of climates, varying ground conditions and for a broad spectrum of clients. This is something we hope to continue to do and look forward to bringing Wheelscape skateparks, whether it is design, build or both to more countries around the world soon.

Construction Specialist concrete shaping, metalwork, formwork and finishing have led to us create some of the most well received skateparks from both clients and users alike. We combine skatepark users with construction backgrounds and experienced concrete professionals to create diversely skilled expert on site teams. These long serving highly specialised operatives work as in house teams to guarantee our quality control. They have experience working on a vast range of challenging designs and differing sites, from the green field hill sides of the Shetland isles to the humid urban building sites of Doha (Qatar) giving them the confidence and skills to deliver even the most demanding of projects to the highest standards. We strive to be as economical and efficient as possible, through sustainable design and encouraging the use of re-purposed material where we can. We have acted as CDM coordinators on dozens of occasions and all our sites are professionally run to current health and safety standards.
Added Value Wheelscape bring added value to every skatepark project. We can provide a number of additional opportunities; site visits/open days, an official opening day, promotional material and magazine/online coverage as well as tutorials. Many skatepark users are very passionate about they’re discipline and would love the opportunity to work within the industry. Site visits provide local users with an insight into the construction process of a skatepark. We work alongside local councils/user groups to organise an official opening day which consists of demonstrations, competitions or ‘jams’ and provide an opportunity for photographs/video of local users. With many links to skateboarding/BMX/Scooter magazines, we have had many of our parks feature within these giving great promotion to the facility and encouraging users to visit the local area. Wheelscape also have a close working relationship with organisations such as ‘Sk8Safe’ that visit skateparks around the country and educate users on how to safely use the facilities.
