Play Value Assessment offers you the opportunity to determine if your playspace meets current playground requirements and helps you plan for future development. CCEP can show you how.
Paradoxically, as the urban environment of our modern world continues to expand, the size of house blocks and the number of places where children can play at home is shrinking. Natural play areas are also becoming harder to find, and for many children, a community playground has become their only opportunity for play. As a result, there is an increasing need to maximise the play potential of individual community playspaces.
‘Play value’ is a relatively simple but far-reaching analytical concept. Loosely defined as “how much play you can get out of something”, play value becomes an invaluable aid when applied to the design and continuing development of playspaces, and can have a vital bearing on playground strategy.
In the experience of CCEP – premium provider of independent risk management, play safety and safety auditing services in the Asia-Pacific region - Play Value Assessment reveals a considerable variation between existing playgrounds, and in particular highlights what is needed to upgrade a playground to meet the minimum requirements at the local, district or regional level.
Play Value Assessment is also applicable when planning new playgrounds as it provides a guide to maximise play outcomes and avoid expensive retrofits.
ASSESSING PLAY VALUE: IS YOUR PLAY FACILITY UP TO SCRATCH?
Using long-established protocols, CCEP’s experienced inspectors can carry out a visual audit of your playspace and calculate the play value that your facility offers to its end-users. The result can greatly assist planning for future development of your facility and help provide the most attractive and suitable venue for the intended age group.
