"Within a children's outdoor playground design we can specify playground equipment from a range of
manufacturers, carefully selecting products which we think deliver the
best balance of play value, quality, and cost in today's market.
"Finally, our fully employed, uniformed and CRB checked child's outdoor playground
installation teams deliver a first class service and our team leaders
are all qualified RPII inspectors, so they have a complete
understanding of the installation requirements. We don't use
subcontractors for our installations. And we offer a full, post
installation care and maintenance service.
"This is what makes us different; we integrate landscape and play
area design, natural features and equipment supply, and our own
installation and maintenance operation."
Along with the new product range, Admiral has also launched a new
website, which gives details of all its products – with a difference.
The price is clearly shown, including the cost of delivery and
installation. The only extras are any safer surfacing that may be
required and VAT. Simon Cashmore explains, "Having listened to our
customers, we found a degree of frustration in that they find it hard
to get prices easily. Prices that are given are frequently for the cost
of the equipment only. We therefore decided to quote a fully installed
price on our website to help their budgeting process." The website also
includes useful information including a guide to funding, intended to
help schools and community groups with their fundraising efforts and a
section on linking outdoor activities and play with the requirements of
the national curriculum.
"We hope our new website proves informative and helpful to those
making decisions on play projects," says Mr Cashmore, "and we are
always happy to hear from users on ways in which we can improve it."
