Athletic Facilities Planning and Design

Let's Improve Your Home Field Advantage

There’s nothing like playing on your home court in front of your own fans. Home field advantage is something all teams thrive on. The stadiums, fields, and surfaces we play on have a direct impact on our performance. Proper material selections, design elements, drainage systems, and sport-specific sub-grades all play a vital role in the overall quality of an athletic facility. Turf replacement, tennis courts, new grandstands – we’ve done it all. Our architects and engineers will help you create a project that is as tough and durable as the athletes it hosts.

Final design: renderings, plans, and costs

After collecting input from multiple stakeholder meetings, interviewing staff, and reviewing the previous designs efforts, we create a final design with a detailed construction estimate incorporating the site, building, and utilities.

  • Generate construction cost estimates
