Internal and External Upgrade

How simple upgrades can make a huge impact to your centre

Location: Loganholme, QLD, AUS

Size: Approx 200 m²

Timeframe: 2 weeks

 

We recently were given the opportunity to upgrade this Loganholme centre's playground and bathrooms. This was completed over a two week period and included new AstroTurf in the preschool area, new vinyl, toilets and basins in the toddler and preschool bathrooms. You can see the transformation here.

External - Playground Upgrade

 

     -  Install new timber border around sandpit

     -  Remove and relay new Astroturf in back yard

     -  Upgrade steps by slide to make safe

     -  Repaint Sail shade poles

     -  Upgrade shade sail and post with new 

        (remove and replace)

     -  Sandpit top up in back and front

     -  Fix damage drain and install new water pits

 

 

 -  Remove large tyres

 -  Repaint old tyres from black to white

And as a bonus the boys fixed up the stepping stone area:

 -  removing and fixing any logs that had chips or that were

    rotten - to make safe,

 -  re-stained stepping logs, placed them a way so they could

    race each other in two straight rows

 -  Added new sand

Fresh Paint

We can't stress enough how painting something can freshen up even the oldest looking part of your back yard

Sand/Bark Top Up

A fresh refill or top up of your bark and sand pit can make all the difference to the eye of the beholder - not to mention is safer for the children

Refresh & Rearrange

Our job is to make your area safe, so removing the chipped logs, sanding down the others and a coat of varnish made this area look fresh.
