Installations Manager

Brendon designs playgrounds like he's still a kid himself. He envisions the most creative concepts that he knows children would love to play on, and then turns them into safe structures. From initial concept to finalized installation, he takes pride in every detail of the project. He is a family man, a devoted husband and father of four children, who wants to provide the best playground experience for all families in Southern Alberta.

At BDI Play Designs, we believe that the installation process is just as important as the quality of the equipment we provide. That's why we have Tyler, a master installer with years of experience and a passion for creating safe and exciting spaces for children to play. He oversees every project, ensuring that no detail is overlooked, and that every customer receives the best possible service.
