Athletic facility planning is about more than developing a place to play ball. It’s about creating a destination that builds school and community pride, generates revenue, and provides economic benefits to the surrounding area. But to benefit, you need more than just a field with bleachers, and there’s no such thing as a one size fits all solution. Maximizing athletic facility benefits and meeting the needs of all users, begins with a deep understanding of your athletic programming needs and goals.
By interviewing coaches, maintenance staff, players, and spectators, we gain a comprehensive vision for the facility from multiple stakeholders. This also allows us to learn about project support and available resources. The amount of time associated with data collection can be minimized through strong organization and leadership that encourages participation with the athletic facility planning and design team.
Preliminary athletic field design and data collection are important, especially when working with existing drainage and soil types. This work starts early in each project and must be fully understood before selecting field locations and service needs. Addressing all available options and aspects of athletic facility design from natural and synthetic turf to parking, concessions, and other amenities helps tailor our approach to provide you with holistic, sustainable solutions.
From preliminary design to final construction review, we specialize in comprehensive project management. We understand the challenges associated with completing projects during summer break or one construction season.
