What was the challenge you were hoping to overcome?

We were looking for more a more challenging playground structure for our students. A playground consultant completed an audit of our current playground and suggested that we needed more equipment that would build upper body strength.

What was the outcome or goal you were hoping to achieve?

We were after a playground that provided challenge for all of the students at our school and in particular, one that had a range of activities that would build upper body strength and agility. We also wanted a structure with challenges that students would take time to master. Most importantly the playground had to be safe, attractive, durable and good value for money.

How did Playground Centre help to achieve that desired outcome & goal?

Playground Centre designed a unique structure that took our needs into consideration. They then listened to feedback about the initial design from our students and staff to come up with the perfect plan. The playground was quickly and efficiently installed and our students love it. It is used extensively throughout the day for fitness and recreation activities. We couldn't be happier with the process and the outcome.
