There’s an adrenaline rush in every sport, and the same is true for planning and design. From athletic and wellness facilities to outdoor venues, we create one-of-a-kind spaces that energize and inspire.

About Sports

We bring more than 30 years of experience in the planning and design of sports facilities, nationwide. We know how to help you make powerful first impressions.

Our proprietary database of peer benchmarking provides valuable metrics to aid clients in making design decisions that will best support the needs of their organization’s needs. With every design task we undertake, our goal is to create a destination that promotes well-being and lifelong physical activity. 


Modern wellness and recreational facilities redefine the notion of exercise and social interaction. We offer specialized experience and working knowledge of current trends and best practices for wellness facilities and all assorted community recreation spaces. Now, exercise, health education, retail, lounges and counseling and health services are often under one roof. These spaces challenge traditional design processes and demand our multidisciplinary approach to problem-solving. We focus on your needs to help you discover the best design solutions.


We'll partner with you to design spaces that take your athlete and fan experience to the next level. 

After recruiting, team facilities function as an on-campus home for most student-athletes who spend a tremendous amount of time in these spaces. Our approach creates environments that promote team building and increased flexibility while accommodating long hours of use. In addition to student-athletes, we also strongly consider the needs of the coaching staff and patrons to design a facility that is optimized for all users.

Outdoor Venues

Throughout the last decade, demand for functional outdoor spaces has grown significantly. Our team understands the value of creating a thoughtfully planned outdoor venue, offering users an enjoyable and memorable experience. We partner with you to understand the needs of your target user groups that are aligned with the venue's intended purpose while developing creative solutions that consider many factors, from adaptability and accessibility to safety and sustainability. 

Whether designing for 100 or 10,000, our highly skilled professionals work with you to envision a new or existing venue where athletes hone their skills while competing at the highest levels and fans watch their favorite teams play in dynamic and highly sought-after facilities.

Elliot Ballpark and Rizza Performance Center have enabled UCONN Baseball to recruit student-athletes from the southern United States.  We were not able to do that prior to these improvements.
