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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
