Campus Site Planning

From space constraints to budget limitations, most sports facilities owners face many hurdles when it comes time to design or re-design their sports campus. But by setting clear goals and expectations at the beginning of a project, a master plan can help you achieve the most important goals while looking for innovative ways to save money.

A majority of sites we work on share one common goal: how can we fit each field, court, or future facility into the overall site? There are many factors to consider like drainage, field and court orientation, and less thought-of elements like detention basins. Having completed hundreds of athletic facility projects, Sportworks Design can help walk owners through the process, creating an attractive and exciting site for players, visitors, and stakeholders.

Take What the Defense Gives You

There are many factors to consider when planning the layout of a future athletic facility. Some essential details in preparing for this stage include:

  • The slope and grading of the site
  • Drainage
  • Spectator and athlete interaction
  • Size of venue
  • Size of fields and facilities
  • Utility availability
  • Electric service
  • Sanitary sewer
  • Storm sewer
  • Gas service
  • Water service
  • Irrigation

Sportworks Design focuses on these technical elements so you can concentrate on what’s important to you: providing your players, coaches, and spectators with a thrilling and memorable experience.
