Will we be saving any money by building our playground as a community build?
Yes, you should expect to save approximately 30% or more on the total playground construction project. However, depending on how much of the installation, site preparation, etc. is competed by volunteers or professional installers, this percentage will vary.
What happens if it rains on the day we planned our community build installation?
In most cases, we build in the rain, as individuals have arranged their schedules to be available and may not be available if the event is postponed. So get out the mudders and get the rain gear ready. Lightning would certainly delay progress during a build.
How many people will we need?
This will vary depending on the size, design and scope for what is being built. Once you have a budget together and a design concept, your equipment representative will be able to guide you with goals for the number of construction volunteers you will need.
What tools are needed?
This will vary somewhat depending on the design and types of play components. Consult with you equipment representative to get your project and design specific list of tools. In general, digging equipment (bob cat or other machine), post hole diggers, shovels, ratchets, cordless drills, hammers, crescent wrenches and other standard tools you would find in a home owners tool box.
