We always like to begin with a no-obligation ideation and planning meeting. Over the course of this meeting we will try to understand exactly what you are looking for in your new outdoor space or play area, and what the ideal outcome would be from your organisation’s point of view. We’ll then show you examples of different ways to achieve these goals, and give you the information you need to get your creative juices flowing.
Going forward, we keep the process heavily design-led, involving all of the project’s stake-holders (your own leadership, school governors, parent or local bodies, and even the children or intended users themselves) from the earliest stages.
By the end of the consultation stage, we will have developed a comprehensive brief of the project, and you will have a very good idea what the final result will be.
Based on the brief that was developed in the consultation stage, we can create a practical, efficient and beautiful design for the sports, fitness or play area that achieves all of your goals and conforms to your stated budget. We have many years of experience providing ideal outdoor spaces and facilities for a wide range of organisations and uses, so we will be able to create something perfect for you.
Of course, the design will also meet all relevant safety and quality standards as well.
This is the stage at which things visibly begin to happen to your new space. You will have a single point of contact with the build team – a dedicated project manager. Their job is to organise the entire build and installation phase, and to minimise any disruption the construction may impose on your other operations. As always, you will be kept ‘in the loop’ about every development.
It is possible to involve parent, student or local community groups at the build stage as well, which helps to inspire a real sense of community ownership and responsibility for the new site. Again, your dedicated project manager will co-ordinate everything and maintain the highest possible safety and quality standards throughout the entire process.
As part of officially opening the new play or leisure area, we will have a formal hand-over meeting to make sure we have met all of your goals for the project, and that you are happy with how it was delivered in every way. Once this is complete, the new outdoor activity area is all yours. However, we often arrange a formal opening event, which is a great way to celebrate all the hard work everyone has done, and to call attention to your new facility!
Maintenance and Refurbishment
Just because your outdoor area is now complete this does not mean we need to end our association with the project. We will be happy to advise you of any long-term maintenance and safety checks that may be advisable, and can again use our industry and business connections to help you find the ideal care and maintenance solutions.
