The office team is installing a playspace!

Building a playground

The team at Playco understand the business of creating a dynamic playground, through to putting it in the ground.

Here we are at Northcote Primary School in Auckland building their awesome new playspace ready for next term. Playco are one of the only playground companies around where our reps are the designers. This means from start to finish we understand the whole process.

To help us understand, we spent the week building the playspace! From footings to hammering in the nails, this one is all due to the Playco office team.

After this week we might even get out there and install some more playgrounds!

Long Bay Primary Playground

Long Bay Primary School had a large space to work with and Playco wanted to maximize the space available by packing it full of play!

The original playground used a traditional rectangle shape, but we saw room for growth. Utilising the extra space, Playco created a new L shaped design to maximize area. Using a wooden structure, ropes and overhead equipment and a fun colour palette, we spend a long time envisioning what it would be like for the kids of all ages to flow through the entire structure, creating one large space for all age groups that the students could all enjoy at the same time.
