PLAYGROUND PROJECTS IN CONNECTICUT

Trassig Corp, based in Connecticut, has completed hundreds of commercial Playground Projects in the state. The following are some of our recent projects:

  • Christ Church Nursery School, Greenwich, CT. We spent a lot of time on this project to make it look the best it possibly could. We added poured in surfacing to the entire space, creating a track around our custom natural playground. The natural playground features balance beams, stepping pods, and monkey bars. We also added a rock climbing wall and fixed their sandboxes, complete with weighted sandbox covers. See pictures here.
  • Barlow Mountain Elementary School, Ridgefield, CT The Trassig team just completed a playground project in Ridgefield CT. Our goal was to make the playground as accessible as possible to people of all abilities. There was an existing playground that we installed a large hip shade over to protect the children from UV rays. We installed playground panels that were ground-level and interactive. The team created a large sandbox with an ADA ramp that was shaded with a sail shade. We also installed a 4-bay swing set that included both belt and full-bodied seats. Lastly, we installed a spring rider that has a special mechanism that stores the child’s kinetic energy to light up the seat as the child rocks back and forth. See pictures here
  • Pumpkin Preschool, Fairfield, CT. The install team completed a surfacing and shade project in Fairfield, CT. They first used shredded rubber bonded with glue to create a base layer for poured in place rubber. From there, they installed blue and black poured in place rubber as a safety surface. The team also installed synthetic turf in another area, as well as a sail shade structure and other independent events. See pictures here
  • Beacon Hill Church, Monroe CT. The church had a large grassy area behind the church building. We constructed a composite playset for 5-12 year olds that included a mountain climbing wall, double slide, climbing arch, a tunnel, interactive play panels, swings, a spring rider, and a double helix climbing wall.We placed borders around the play site and filled the area with engineered wood fiber safety surfacing.

  • First Step Preschool, New Fairfield, CT We installed a new playground for a preschool in New Fairfield, CT. We installed a modified TR-0003GS with a fire pole and two HDPE climbing walls. For surfacing, we took advantage of the existing yet damaged rubber tiles. We filled in the gaps between tiles then installed synthetic turf on top  See pictures here
  • Boys and Girls Village, Milford, CT The Trassig team moved an existing playground to another nearby location. The crew dismantled the playground, transported it to the new location, dug new cement footings and re-built the playground. They also installed engineered wood fibers as a new safety surfacing, which are enclosed with plastic borders. See pictures here
  • Long Lots Elementary School, Westport, CT We recently completed a project in Westport, CT for a local elementary school. We installed a Gaga Ball Pit Court, a popular new game similar to dodgeball, with synthetic turf as surfacing. We decided it was wise to remove the organic grass inside the court so as the students could play after it rains. We also installed a tetherball, 3 adjustable basketball systems and painted the basketball keys. See pictures here
  • Annunciation Greek Church, Stamford, CT We installed a playground, picnic table and benches for a church in Stamford, CT. We modified the TR-0009 to meet the client’s specifications and installed benches surrounding the playground to allow parents/ teachers to observe the children See pictures here
  • Valley Hospital, Prospect, CT The team installed a 15′ x 25′ shade structure. The client chose a hip shade (4 posts) with blue fabric for protection from the sun. See pictures here
  • Pumpkin Preschool, Westport, CT   Trassig completed a surfacing and shade project for a preschool in Westport, CT. The team installed a 16′ x 16′ x 21′ sail shade to protect the play area from harsh UV rays. In addition, the team replaced the playground safety surfacing. There was an existing rubber mulch surface that was mixed with glue to create a unitary, impact attenuating base layer for poured in place rubber. Once the base layer had been prepared, the team installed beige and black poured in place rubber as a safety surface. See pictures here
  • Action Early Learning Center, Danbury, CT We recently installed a new playground for a daycare in Danbury, CT. We first had to prepare the site by removing the grass and leveling the play area. We replaced the original surface with toddler-friendly synthetic turf with 2″ padding for impact attenuation. Next, the team installed the TR-00030S, which is an interactive toddler play set that features integrated shade. See pictures here
  • Daisy Ingraham School, Westbrook, CT The team installed synthetic turf and rejuvenated an old swing set at a daycare in Watertown, CT. They installed 2″ padding for impact attenuation and a toddler-friendly grade of synthetic turf. With some priming and coating we were able to make the wooden swing set look as good as new.

  • Jewish Community Center, Stamford, CT The Trassig team finished an install in Stamford, CT for a community center. It had an existing playground, but the safety surfacing (tiles) were damaged. To remedy the situation, the install crew cleaned and primed the tiles. They added 2″ of black and green poured in place rubber for an impact-attenuating surface. To prevent any tripping hazards and to ensure ADA accessibility, the team beveled the edges of the surface. We also replaced the swing chains to ensure the playground is as safe as possible. See pictures here
  • St. Thomas Aquinas, Fairfield CT. The school had a large area full of engineered wood fiber and wanted to move from this loose surfacing to a unitary safety surface. The school had one of the parents remove all the mulch for us. We filled the area with aggregate, compacted it and installed padding and synthetic turf. We then constructed a playset for 2-5 year olds and an active play/ropes set for 5-12 year olds. See pictures here
  • Hospital for Special Care, New Britain, CT. For this project we installed safety surfacing for an existing play set. We installed poured in place rubber on top of a layer of crushed stone.

  • The Laurel School, Trumbull CT. We built two commercial playgrounds and two water play areas for the school. One of the playgrounds is for 2-5 year olds and the other is for toddlers. The pre-school set had existing gravel as surfacing. We supplied the owner of the school with rubber tiles so they can do the install themselves and save money. See pictures here
  • Landmark Academy, Westport CT. The school wanted a playset for 2-5 year olds with appropriate surfacing for the area. They already had a poured in place rubber surface but the critical fall height had to be increased to meet the fall height of the playset. After installing the set, we installed an extra 1″ of buffings on top of the rubber surface and used our playground liquid rubber to top it off. We created a polka dot design for the kids, which they loved. See pictures here
  • Guilead Hill School, Hebron, CT. The school wanted to extend their existing play area and install a composite play set for ages 2 to 5 as well as install a swing set and other independent play events. We extended the borders of the current area with our 12″ plastic borders and installed a customized set as well as a surf rider, four pod seater, stepping pods, and an arch swing. We installed wear mats under the swing. See pictures here
  • St. Lima St. Rose, New Haven, CT. In this project we removed existing mulch, replaced it with crushed stone and installed poured in place rubber surfacing. We then extended the area to install more independent play events with poured in place rubber underneath. We finished the project by installing a sand box for the kids and a shade structure to keep them cool in the summer. See pictures here
  • UCONN Child Development Lab, Storrs, CT. The toddlers needed a soft and safe surface to play on. The school had a tight budget and any loose material was out of the question as it presents a choking hazard for the toddlers. Since the area was flat concrete we elected to install rubber tiles.
