Sports and Recreational Facilities

As major centers of social and economic importance across the world, sports facilities and recreational buildings need to be optimized to admit hundreds or thousands of people on a regular basis, as well as to meet the needs of whatever activity takes place in the facility. Whether you’re looking for just the right turf or the most comfortable stadium seating, designing and building these facilities can lead into ultra-specialized waters, and requires a delicate balance of expertise.
