The Process

Whether you're renovating or building a new centre, the process is the same. The ultimate goal is to achieve an inspirational outdoor play space on time, and on budget. Playscape will help you to develop a space that suits the site and provides suitable challenges for each child's ability level.

Working towards the ultimate outdoor play area can be staged out so that each element works in conjunction with each other at the pace your budget allows.

It takes time to create your dream playscape. By getting us involved at the initial stages of planning we can design and build your playground vision with ease. So call us early in your planning process to make sure your dream becomes a reality.


We listen to your requirements and in combination with site-specific elements, formulate a master plan. Creating a master plan or vision for your playground will help to deliver the best possible learning environment and improve your centre's value.

A master plan is also helpful when preparing budgets or acquiring funding. If you are developing a new centre, we can provide assistance in obtaining resource consent, with financial projections and show you how to maximise your centre's potential for prospective families.

We understand that core curriculum activities need to be permanently available, yet integrated into a natural environment. Playscape can create a framework that encourages children to play freely, allowing them to explore and use their imaginations in safe surroundings.

The Playscape team will work with major stakeholders to initiate a custom design solution for your site. We adapt our design to respect your centre's individuality and cultural needs.

Project Management & Construction

Playscape's specialised construction teams work nationwide delivering superior playscapes on time and on budget. We are experienced in renovation, new builds and the construction of individual elements that complement existing outdoor play spaces.

Our construction teams are flexible and can cater to your centre's needs during business hours. While there may be some inconvenience, we aim for minimal disruption to your business while we make your playscape a reality. Children are still able to play outdoors in a safe area separate from the construction of your playscape.

After Care

No playground is maintenance-free. By developing a structured maintenance programme with low maintenance elements, we can achieve sustainable solutions, reducing long-term capital expenditure.

Our Warrant of Fitness (WOF) visits will provide you with an assessment and subsequent recommendations to resolve immediate problems, but also highlights potential issues, allowing them to be budgeted for in advance. Early identification and resolution of maintenance issues will help you to retain control over the exterior budget, and keep your playscape in excellent condition for your children.
