We have, over recent months, significantly strengthened our all of our services and reviewed our pricing as a positive response to the squeeze on public finances and Public Sector cut-backs. We are sure that your Council play team is no exception to the pressure on the staff that remains to deliver the same quality, often with less resource, but we can help;
Capital budgets are scarcer than ever, but we can help through our funding support service and consultation process, to identify the real needs, which funders to go to and how to make sure your bids are successful.
Once projects are agreed and monies are in place from capital budgets, section 106 and external funders, we will help to maximise your play value through very competitive product pricing, good levels of discount together with on-going free of charge support from our design teams who know how to get the most out whatever budget you have.
Sometimes what is needed is a different approach that we offer from our inspection & maintenance team, so rather than buy all new play equipment, perhaps a combination of new and refurbishment of items that are both expensive to replace and well loved by the local community. Find out more about our Inspection & Maintenance services.
Revenue budgets are stretched to breaking point, so our products are built to last! We offer the best warranties in the play industry, for example our Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) has a lifetime warranty. Our inspection and maintenance teams are on hand to meet with you to discuss how to extend the lifetime of your play spaces and where you can save time and money in operating and maintain them.
We want to help you to engage with communities so that they have a sense of pride and ownership of their new play space. Our Area Sales Manager can work with you from the start to meet with the local community, the users of the park and those that will operate and maintain it to ensure the project is a success, not just on the opening day but for many years to come.
Our product range is the broadest on the market, so whether it be play, sport, fitness, skate, parkour or landscaping we know that by working together with our designers we will meet and surpass the needs of the community for a given budget. If you are looking for something unique, either tailor our standard products through choices in material, colours and textures or ask us to create something bespoke for you.
Inclusivity to us means something for everyone of all ages, ability and gender so we offer not just a wide range of equipment suitable for all users but also in the design of the play area as a whole such as of access, pathways, landscaping and planting.
Our design teams are a free of charge resource based locally to you, so please contact us to talk through whatever ideas that you have and our creative teams will help to turn these ideas into reality.
