Project Planning

Superior Playgrounds offers a comprehensive start- to-finish playground planning program designed to make planning your playground easy, every step of the way. Our turnkey planning is a seven-step process that will ensure a successful and hassle-free playground project.

1.   PLAYGROUND NEEDS ASSESSMENT

We start by sitting down with you at your location or ours to discuss your current situation. A Certified Playground Safety Inspector will evaluate your existing playground or make recommendations for your new playground based on CPSC/ASTM and ADA Guidelines.

2.   EQUIPMENT SELECTION

Once the evaluation is complete, we will help you select the right equipment for your playground based on the amount of space available, the number of children and their ages. We will recommend only products that are age appropriate, safe, long lasting and promote both physical and social development

3.   SAFETY SURFACING SOLUTIONS

There are many important factors to consider in choosing the right safety surfacing material for your playground. The types of surfacing material you choose will directly influence the safety, cost and ADA compliance issues. We can help you choose what is needed to meet your budget and safety requirements.

4.   DELIVERY OPTIONS

We know that receiving large quantities of playground equipment can be intimidating. There are unloading, storage and installation issues that you must deal with. Many of our customers have the facility and manpower to handle the receiving process and we can ship by common carrier direct to your warehouse or site. Some customers are not equipped to handle the receiving process, in those situations we can arrange for delivery by one of our own delivery trucks. This method must be scheduled in advance and meet minimum order requirements

5.    INSTALLATION OPTIONS

There are four basic options. Our consultant can help you select, which of the four options is right for your organization. You can: hire a professional yourself to do the complete job, hire a professional to supervise volunteers, do it yourself using volunteers, or Superior Playgrounds can provide certified playground installers to do the job for you.   

6.    PAYMENT AND PURCHASING OPTIONS

Quality playgrounds, installation and surfacing material can be a large investment. Superior Playgrounds offer payment options for everyone. Payment Options range from cash incentives, short and long term payment plans, in addition to Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover.

7.    RISK MANAGEMENT

Every organization should have a risk management program in place! As part of our service, Superior Playgrounds offer an economical way for your organization to set up an effective risk management plan. Contact your local sales rep for details!
