As a playground designer, landscape architect or developer attempting to create an iconic play structure that stands apart, it is good to ask yourself: “Am I using the best method to create an iconic and unique playground?”.
Even if you haven’t thought about it, it’s a great question to consider to ensure you get the best outcome for all stakeholders.
Before you understand the best method, it’s important to understand the different ways of creating playgrounds. These include ‘off the shelf’, ‘custom’ and ‘bespoke’. Interestingly, all these terms hark back to business suit tailoring and the three main options: an off-the-shelf suit, a customised suit or a bespoke suit.
Just as businessmen make choices with the level of customisation in a suit, so do playground creators.
At adventure+ we believe the best method for playground construction is customisation, here’s why:
City of Burnside’s Landscape Architect, Claire Bottrall provided her initial pen sketches of the unique playground she wanted to create. (See figure 1 below.) Her vision was to inspire children’s imaginations with a series of connecting ‘rooms’ using existing vegetation plus structural elements.
The playground as sketched would not have been compliant with Australian Standards, would have been costly to construct, and maintenance would have been expensive, with spare parts needing to be bespoke.
At adventure+, we took Claire’s design and reworked it so it still had the look and feel that she wanted to achieve. (See figure 2 below.)
It is now compliant with Australian Standards, more cost effective because we used a modular solution, and maintenance will be easier because spare parts readily available should they be needed.
With our tried-and-tested systems and components, we can create a unique playground for you that reflects your playground site and community needs.
As a manufacturer of playground equipment, we have more flexibility in what we produce and create.
Our range of construction materials (both steel and timber) means you can create a playground that satisfies your needs, whether it’s robust steel, timber for a softer look and feel, or a combination of both.
When you choose adventure+, you have access to a team of designers with design flair and practical working knowledge of Australian Standards and conditions.
