Paultons Park, an attraction set in one of the South of Englands largest family theme parks, is the UK home of Peppa Pig, the popular young children's cartoon character who is very socially and environmentally focussed.

Peppa Pig World forms part of a £6 million facility HPW have masterplanned for the Park.

The building, which houses a fully themed indoor play area, Daddy Pig's Big Tummy Cafe and Peppa Pig's Toy Shop, features a wildflower roof, windcatchers and SUD System. The total footprint of the building is just below 10,000ft2.

With wind catchers, a striking 10,000ft2 wildflower roof, rainwater harvesting irrigation system, full Sustainable Urban Drainage System, hybrid Glulam frame, locally sourced timber rain screen cladding, under floor heating and super-insulated shell, the building pioneers sustainable design and development. The wind-catchers have PV built into the South facing tops, enabling fans to kick in if wind movement is too low.

Locally sourced indigenous timber rain screen cladding has been used on the building and its wildflower roof has been planted with a variety of native vegetation and flowers from the surrounding New Forest National Park.

Peppa Pig World was featured in the November 2016 issue of Hampshire Business News.  The article states:

'Since its £11m investment in Peppa World the Park has seen its annual visitor numbers double to a million.

Last year Paultons received visitors from 36 different countries and it was rated the number one theme park in the UK by tripAdvisor, number 6 in Europe and number 22 worldwide.

"It was a calculated risk" said Richard (Mancey, Managing Director of Paultons Park).

Paultons now has an annual turnover of around £24m and employs around 110 full time staff and a further 650 seasonal workers.'
