At Groundwork and Leisure Services (GLS) we offer a complete playground supply and construct service from the conception and planning stage through to completion. The following list highlights the majority of the tasks we undertake for our clients:
GLS offer prices for the supply of materials (both Play Equipment and Playground Surfaces), for the supply and installation of equipment and playground surfaces, and labour only prices for the installation of client supplied equipment and surfacing.
- Site Plans
If you require playground equipment to be supplied and installed we can get plans of the finished site drawn up by our landscape architect, which help you visualise how the playground will look upon completion. This can be useful as changes can easily be made for free at this stage, where as once works commences changes can still be accommodated, but can result in charges.
GLS work as both the main contractor of a project and on a sub contractual basis. We are experienced in all aspects of playground construction and can work to time constrained contracts.
- Health & Safety
As with all accountable, reliable firms, GLS takes Health & Safety very seriously. GLS have had no reportable injuries since it started trading. We complete Risk Assessments and Method Statements for all contracts and as such these are always available to main contractors upon request. GLS employees are all CSCS registered and membership cards are also available upon request. Regular tool box talks ensure Health & Safety issues are addressed on a daily basis.
- Themed Playground Surfacing
As GLS offer a wide choice of the play area surfaces available on the market, we are also able to accommodate requests for themed playground flooring. Whether this is colour themes to compliment equipment, such as ocre and blue thoughtfully laid to represent sand islands in the sea or games such as hop scotch and snakes and ladders or characters such as butterflies, lions etc., we can usually find a solution to your request.
- Hard & Soft Landscaping
Complimentary works such as tarmaccing, hard and soft landscaping, are also offered in house by GLS, so you are guaranteed the same high standard of service and finish for these services as well as for playground surfaces.
- Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGAs)
GLS offer a very sturdy but competitive range of MUGAs in both steel and Plaswood (recycled plastic). These can also be offered with a synthetic sports surfacing that is very unique, as it is the only surface available on the market that allows realistic ball bounce for football, hockey and basketball.
