REDEFINING EXPERIENCES FOR ATHLETES.

WE UNDERSTAND THE BUSINESS OF SPORT – RECREATION CENTRES, ARENAS AND STADIUMS ARE DESIGNED FOR FUNCTION AND FLEXIBILITY.

We have international experience working on award-winning buildings for sports and recreation, from the friendly confines of community centres to landmark sports venues such as Toronto’s Air Canada Centre and Glasgow’s Velodrome.

For smaller facilities, we work closely with architects and designers to develop solutions that are cost-effective, yet aesthetically pleasing. Typically this involves exposed structure, and we pay close attention to detailing the structural connections in order to present a high level of polish.

Large venues call for large-scale structural engineering, where we apply our specialty in long-span steel construction and building envelope along with our ability to develop innovative solutions. Each sports centre is architecturally unique and requires different approaches, whether it’s developing a new shape of truss to optimize floor space, or designing an original system of resisting and transferring loads to make the architect’s vision a reality.
