Site Inspections and Safety Audits
Site inspections and safety audits are proven tools in maintaining a safer playground. Summit Recreation can provide a Certified Playground Safety Inspector to evaluate your playground. The playground will be evaluated with the prevailing guidelines issued by the American Society for the Testing Materials (ASTM) and the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission’s (CPSC) “Handbook for Public Playground Safety”. Our playground inspectors examine every piece of equipment, your playground surfacing, the playground borders, and any other item found in the play area. A written report of the findings and the recommendations of measures to be taken for areas of concern on the playground can be provided. If you want to meet with our inspector before or during the audit, we are more than happy to meet with you!
Budget Projections, Financing, Grants & Fundraising
Because several factors go into determining the cost of a new playground—whether or not the playground is new or is a replacement for an older structure, the size of the site, how many children the new equipment must accommodate, the age of the intended users, the safety surfacing material and the installation of the equipment, Summit Recreation can assist in working with you in budgeting and budget projections.
Alternative purchasing programs such as phasing or equipment financing can be explored for the best suited option for your organization. Fundraising ideas and grants information is also available to assist you in finding funding sources.
It is so important to consider the Total Cost of Ownership, when often times obtaining funds for playground equipment can be challenging. The value added benefits of owning a Burke Built playground become essential. Summit Recreation can explore with you the value added benefits of Burke Built.
