4 Things to consider when building a playground at a school

There are many times that individual investors want to build playgrounds for schools, churches or even for commercial use. These people sometimes encounter problems when it comes to the planning of the playground. They do not know how to go about the project and have it delivered at the right time. Well, it need not be rocket science! In this article, we shall discuss how to go about building a playground for a school.


You can also get other ideas on school playgrounds and how to plan for these at http://pdplay.com/ website.



Here are 4 things to consider as you plan to build a playground at a school:


1. Budget and financial implications


As with all other projects you will ever undertake, the budgeting stage is one of the most important. You need to know how much your playground will cost. The size of the playground will definitely determine the cost. The same case applies to the play items and installations. Does your school playground need any themed designs? This will definitely add to the cost. You will need to plan for installations and this should be done by certified playground installation experts. Since the playground will be used by children, safety is of paramount importance. The cost of safety will, therefore, have to be factored in. Basically, do your research before you start the project.


2. Space for play


How much space does your school playground need? Well, you could consult the authorities on the issue of school playground space and other issues related to it. However, you will work with the amount of space you have. You could install the playground for a space of 25 feet by 30 feet. This will be the space where the installations will be placed. However, you could work   with a bigger size playground if space allows. This is what is known as the “use zone”
The type of play activities that the children will be engaged in is also another factor that you need to consider. Your budget will again determine the kind of installations that you can have.


3. Installing the Playground


After you have planned for your finances and space for the playground, it is time to have the playground installed. How do you go about this? Will you be able to install the playground on your own? Definitely, this would be a daunting task. Well, you can have playground experts do the installation for you. All you need to do is ensure that they are certified installers and that they have the right installation equipment required for this exercise.


You could involve your community to piece the items together. You can have all the playground installations done on a Saturday. The fact that the playground installation parts are safety compliant means that you will only need to have these easily pieced together. Involving your community will save you money.


4. Warranty and maintenance of the installations


How long will your playground last? Well, the type of materials used for the installation will determine the length of time the playground installations can last. With proper maintenance, your playground should last years and years. You see, most of the installations are made of steel. As such, you can be assured of longevity and safety of the playground items. Always ask your installers and your suppliers for warranty and maintenance.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
