Why Virtual Site Visits? – More Than a Covid-19 Response
We could pretend that Virtual Site Visits are our response to the Covid-19 pandemic … but we have been doing them for years. In general, we do love to come out and meet you as our experienced playground designers can often notice opportunities for maximising play space, or issues that may make some items particularly expensive at your proposed site. A face to face discussion is also good for us to elicit the types of equipment you are most interested in.
However, there are frequently times when a site visit is not great use of your time, and nor is loads of unnecessary driving round good for the environment. For example when you know the particular piece of playground equipment you need or its something like outdoor gym equipment that needs to be installed onto tarmac.
Our playground and outdoor gym designers really are experts and they will know when a site visit is not necessary.
Of course, right now with an ongoing pandemic, a “virtual visit” is often the best option to get started.
What is a Virtual Site Visit?
Or perhaps more importantly, what do you need to do for us to be able to assess your site and playground or outdoor gym requirements:
Firstly, you don’t need to be a technology expert – we will guide you through the whole process.
We would like to see you, so will suggest using video conferencing – we are familiar with using Zoom, Google Hangouts, Skype and even WhatsApp. We have been working with these solutions for years, so can guide you through using them. BUT VIDEO CONFERENCING IS NOT ESSENTIAL.
We can usually do everything from a phone call, an exact location and some photos.

The Covid-19 Pandemic
Please see Our Coronovirus update for the latest situation regarding site visits, installation work.
Even though “virtual visits” are not new for us, the Coronavirus pandemic has definitely effected our thinking on how we should behave to keep you, our staff and the wider community safe.
That’s why at the present time Virtual Site Visits are usually our preferred option.
