Jefferson Elementary

July 7, 2022

We revitalized a 30 year old elementary school playground by incorporating modern play designs. One playground features a focus on physical play and climbing components. The other focuses on sustainability with recycled plastic material.

The Challenge

The biggest obstacle that we overcame with the project was working within a constrained timeline as the school approached its end of fiscal year funding deadline. This required us to finalize an official proposal in a very small window.

Our Solution

The Zoom Recreation team worked together with Superior's engineering, design and purchasing teams to accomplish this goal. We walked the site with the client to create a vision and determine their goals for the play environment. We then worked with our manufacturer to develop a site plan that worked within their space while staying within budget. We bypassed the traditional bidding process utilizing a Buyboard Purchasing Cooperative contract. This allowed us to expedite the bid with the added benefit of an additional 10% discount.

Project Manager

As a project manager, I love the creativity and freedom to build out a vision from scratch. I grew up climbing everything. Looking back, this contributed towards my development as a child. When designing a play space, I believe some of the most important aspects are imaginative, creative, and physical play. When I'm not working, I'm immersed in sports, especially football, golf, and snowboarding!
