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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
