Child's Play

There are tough customers, and then there are brutal ones: Kids.

They can be a tough crowd. Creating a fun, bright and indestructible space for the rough-and-tumble set was Tyler 2 Construction’s task for Kidz Play Here, just across the street from Concord Mills Mall. Merriman-Schmitt Architects, Inc. designed the imaginative 4,355 SF fun zone. We helped bring it to life.

The challenge:

Upfit a new shell building with a break room, classrooms, play area for kids and restrooms. The upfit included HVAC units, lights, plumbing fixtures, new carpet, vinyl composition tile, and paint throughout. And get it done in three months.

We coordinated with a fixture contractor to install an indoor tree house, playhouses and a climbing structure.

Inspectors had a lot on their plate at the time, and opening day was non-negotiable. Tyler 2 scheduled inspections four to five days in advance instead of the usual one to two days to ensure opening day happened as planned.  We certainly didn't want to keep the kids waiting.

The end result:

Designing an exciting space for kids that will also be an enjoyable spot for parents to spend time is not all fun and games. We began work in late June, and turned the indoor play extravaganza over, on time, to excited kids in late September.

This wonderful space is now in full use for birthday parties, play dates, and all sorts of fun and adventure.
