    Whats Involved With Your New Playground?

    Playground Planning

    When planning your new playground there are certain considerations to be made from the outset, such as budget, timeframe, playground area and play equipment suitability for the appropriate age range.

    As the playground design and development process can take on average 3-6 months, it makes sense to start planning way ahead of time, to ensure your playground can be manufactured and built both to specification and within your set time frame.

    Creative Play is one of the leaders in Playground Equipment design, manufacture and installation and is perfectly positioned to consult and advise you on the most suitable options available to meet your requirements.

    Playground Design

    Creative Play has been designing playgrounds for over 30 years, perfecting outdoor play, testing and refining our playground equipment based on internal testing and feedback, to be the most engaging and fun-packed experience possible for your children. We are fully versed in maximising the space available,  whilst still producing amazing playground experiences.  

    Playground Equipment Manufacture

    We manufacture the majority of our playground equipment in-house to BSEN safety standards. Using only premium grade materials such as treated timber and durable plastics and components ensures the lifespan of your playground equipment. We have been refining our production processes for over 30 years and offer a 20-year guarantee on our timbers.

    Once you’re happy with your playground design, this is when we move into production and manufacture your playground equipment to order, to ensure it meets any special criteria required for your playground space.

    Playground Installation

    Once we have completed the manufacture of your playground equipment it is ready for installation. We work with you to choose an optimum time to start the building process. Depending on the range of equipment chosen will directly impact how much preparation we need to do, both on the land housing the equipment and for any footings and surfacing considerations that need to be in place before larger equipment is installed.

    On average the build can take anywhere from 1 to 10 weeks plus, depending on the size of the installation required. We again only use commercial grade materials to ensure the longevity of your playground ensuring it is stable and secure, ready for children to enjoy.

    To start the process, we discuss the playground options and what types of play equipment would be best suited to the age range. We then come out to your school or setting to conduct an on-site consultation to truly get a feel for how the composition of the playground should be. From there we put together design concepts for your new commercial or school playground so you can start to visualise how it would look once installed. It’s often easier at this stage to understand how the playground equipment fits together to create a unique and engaging experience.

    Playground Maintenance

    It’s important to maintain your equipment to ensure its safety ongoing, we provide a regular playground health check service, where we come out to your site and check timbers, fastenings, surfacing and the overall health of the playground equipment. This simple but essential service can ensure your playground can go on to be a source of entertainment for many years to come.

    Summary

    As you can tell Creative Play has been designing, manufacturing and installing playgrounds for many years and we are experts in our field. We are sure we can provide not only the best playground equipment infrastructure for your playground but also a 1st class service ensuring you get the best value for your budget.
