Thank you to DP Associates for their sponsorship of a new category for 2018.

DP Associates GB Ltd is a home grown Milton Keynes leisure consultancy business specialising in master planning for visitor attractions.

Managing Director Duncan Phillips set up the company in 2008 and in the early stages of growth offered his master planning services to Bletchley Park to assist in their Heritage Lottery application. Duncan still sits on the executive board that steers the parks future.

Whilst executing other designs Duncan began to see a gap in the leisure market between day trips to theme parks and local short leisure visits for families and began to work up a design for a midpoint Family Entertainment centre with rides, a play frame, messy play area and role play street to meet the needs of today’s families and enable them to play together for a few hours on their doorstep.

360 Play was born and the opportunity to test the product arose when a local play centre came up for sale.

This year 360 Play opened its 6th centre having built and opened 2 centres in 2017

The design and master planning of these latest projects has once again been carried out by DP Associates (DPA), while sister company DPL project manages the build on site.
