Utilizing Precast Concrete Picnic Tables and Continue Learning!

Covid-19 has pushed us all to think outside the norm and embrace life in this new era. The period of uncertainty has been challenging for students, their families, and educators. It will be a lost opportunity if this moment is not harnessed to rethink how to move forward.

Proper conditions are needed to be in place for students to learn and for teachers to teach.  Smaller class sizes, proper hygiene and proper physical distancing all need to be assessed and managed.

We were approached recently by Bill Trask, Principal, Ecole Banting Middle School for five of our Columbia Picnic tables. Now you might be curious as to why a school would want so many picnic tables. Bill’s proactive approach was to provide a safe location with proper health protocols so teachers and students can adequately utilize these precast concrete picnic tables and continue learning.

As school reopening has shown, this is not merely a return to schooling as normal.

The Columbia Picnic table is the culmination of over thirty years of producing precast concrete picnic tables for provincial parks and urban spaces. The Columbia picnic table is precisely built for high traffic public spaces. Fittings and reinforcing cages are so solidly engineered that tables can be delivered fully assembled to most sites within 100 km of our Surrey, BC manufacturing plant. Columbia tables are available as a 6′ standard table and a 7’6 ″ wheelchair accessible mode with cantilevered ends suitable for wheelchairs.

Utilizing precast concrete base slabs for Picnic Tables is inexpensive moreover allows for swift placement and site cleanup. Using a precast concrete pad that can be positioned quickly can save significant time and money. Once the site is prepped, a hole dug, and gravel is placed and levelled – dropping a precast concrete base slab into position takes minutes literally. The premade slabs are stored at the plant until the site is ready. Cities, schools and institutions throughout British Columbia have requested Sanderson Concrete for precast concrete base pads for our concrete site furnishings.

As school reopening has shown, this is not merely a return to schooling as normal.
