The wheelchair accessible play park caters for a range of ages, from toddlers through to teenagers, so the pathways are extensively used, resulting in them being well worn, uneven and in a state of deterioration and disrepair. In wet weather the pathways are prone to extreme puddling. An example of this is at the main gate near the bins where the pathway has dipped, and a large puddle quickly develops. The pathways are strewn with stones and gravel, which when wet further churns up and moves about, especially from pushchairs usage. This debris ends up on the mulch play areas, causing damage there. In terms of health and safety, due to the pathway wearing down the edging is frequently exposed causing trip hazards. We spend time and money bringing the pathway up to the correct level, and back-filling to make it smooth. TENDER REQUIREMENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS Please explain and detail in your tender how the new pathways will meet all the new pathways requirements and specifications as below. REQUIREMENTS The pathways need to be re-levelled, made safe and puddle free. The new pathways should improve the overall play park aesthetics as a whole, and provide a pleasant and fun play park for all to navigate safely in all weathers. • Safe • Level throughout • Free (details of how this will be made possible will need to be provided) • The new pathways will need to accommodate the existing mulch within the older children's play areas • Aesthetically pleasing. Note: The current areas underneath the play equipment in the toddlers and under 5s areas may be resurfaced after the pathways resurfacing, most likely with a bonded rubber mulch, extending to the pathways, but will not necessarily happen straight after the pathways surfacing. SPECIFICATIONS Please provide details along with costs for the following:- • Prelims • Tarmac pathways surface (approximately 280m2) • Subbase • Concrete Edging (approximately 170lm) • Groundworks • Disposal • Price per metre • Any post completion inspection costs • Total project cost • How long the quote is valid for • Earliest start date available • Sustainability statement. Proof of all certifications and insurances are required as part of the tender submission, along with detailed plans, risk assessments and a methods statement. Any other information deemed relevant should also be included. Two references for similar projects within the last 18 months are also required.
