Amongst other jobs in January this week GLS have been installing Notts Sport NottsSward surfacing but not as a playground flooring, but as a surround for a discus circle. With some relatively wet weather around the North West, Bolton council noticed that the area around there discus circle had become waterlogged.
After another visit to Glasgow to carry out a large installation for Glasgow Housing/Glasgow Council, the Playground Surfaces (GLS) teams have been busy on a few smaller projects, which has ended up with us travelling a lot more miles!!!
The Wet Pour team have been busy in Worcester and Birmingham as well as handling another recycled bonded glass job in the North. The wet pour team are in Manchester next.
There has, as always, been a lot of ChildsPlay ordered throughout the UK.
Playground Surfaces teams remained busy right up until the Christmas holidays. Only one afternoon did the cold weather accompanied by snow/sleet effect one teams ability to work......a lot better than December 2010.
With the weather getting colder, Playground Surfaces teams have been glad to be super busy!!!
Teams have been working in Manchester, N.Wales and the West Midlands, and with a lot more work booked on in Hartlepool, Doncaster, Liverpool and Glasgow it is due to get even busier!!!
This was the first job of the autumn for the Sports Install Team here at Playground Surfaces.
Prestatyn High School is also the site of a medium sized sports centre. With the combined demand from both the schools P.E. department and the users of the sports centre a triple multi pitch facility was designed in conjunction with the local authority.
Due to technical difficulties, Playground Surfaces have been unable to keep this online blog up to date.
However with the difficulties resolved there should be a few updates over the coming days.....
This update relates to a job carried out this week for a local council near Rochdale.
This week Playground Surfaces have been in the West Midlands carrying out a number of cover over's for a local authority. The playgrounds are based in an area suffering from high levels of vandalism. The damaged wet pour had been pulled up and repaired a number of times and had numerous seams running throughout it. This simply left the wet pour open to continued vandalism so a better solution was desperately needed by the council.
With the summer here (in name at least) local children are off school for their holidays.
With this in mind the Playground Surfaces team have been very local, providing line markings for a school in Chester. The PTA had carried out a fund raising event and had decided to spend some of the proceeds on line marking for their playground.
After an initial site meeting to discuss the schools requirements, it was decided that the best use of the area would be to mark out a triple coloured, triple pitch court.
Recently a Playground Surfaces (GLS) team were carrying out some repair work on a kick about area for a local N.W. local authority. Whilst carrying out the Notts Sport repair, there was a play areas co-ordinator inspecting an existing multi unit with shrunken and damaged rubber playground tiles. The co-ordinator and her colleague were looking for a solution to this issue and luckily GLS had some ideas.
This week Playground Surfaces (GLS) carried out a Notts Sport cover over for a midlands local authority. The authority in question has not used Notts Sports play products before, but do have a lot of trouble with damaged wet pour being ripped up. As such they have agreed to give Notts Sport ChildsPlay a try.
