Create Partnerships

Create Partnerships brings a unique portfolio

Although operating as autonomous, self-determined businesses, all companies within the portfolio have their common hub Paul Collings, who has been working within the external environment since 2000 when he set up Timberplay – one of the most respected names within the play industry.

Representing German play specialists Richter Spielgeräte within the UK, Paul submerged himself within the play culture, learning about the value of risk within play and promoting a new approach to play which was radically different to that currently on offer within the UK. The company grew from strength to strength, operating throughout England and Wales and working on several prestigious play developments.

From this foundation Paul then established Playgarden, to work specifically within the Early Years Education Sector, a natural progression from Timberplay.

All Urban were established to provide high quality street furniture and lighting, predominately from Santa & Cole, hailing from Barcelona and innovators of products of the highest design and manufacturing credentials.

Lightmain offer sports and skate installations, with a range of solutions to suit the budget and requirements of each individual projects. With a proven track record for delivering high quality installations, they were well suited to join the Create Partnerships family.
