Sports & Operational Experts By Your Side.

Facility design and construction is a journey – one that is inevitably filled with unexpected twists and turns. Luckily, we’ve been on this journey 70+ times and can guide you through the process. 

Here’s what we can do for you:

  • Owner’s Representation – We’ll manage the design and procurement processes and ensure construction proceeds according to contract documents on your behalf – on time and on budget.
  • Venue Planning & Design Consulting – Sports expertise + operational experience = better facilities. We’ll partner with your existing architect (or help you select one) and then ensure the facility designs meet your operational needs and can host the programs/events you want.
  • FFE/OSE Procurement – We’ll put our 20 years of industry relationships and massive purchasing power to work on your behalf. We’ll help you maximize your budget and get the right furniture, fixtures, and equipment for your facility.

3 Reasons why we're the best.

  • Real-World Experience – We manage 40+ properties across the nation and have developed more than 70. This means we’re not learning on the job. We’re providing an organized, proven process designed to save you time and money.
  • Collaboration is Key – We’re built for collaboration inside and out. Our interest is in serving our clients and making an impact in their community. We’ll partner with your team, stakeholders, design and construction firms, and anyone else you’d like to produce the best facility possible.
  • Engineering Value – All of our development services are designed to create value for you. From negotiating prices on wood court flooring to partnering with your architect on critical design decisions, our focus is on maximizing budget, optimizing operations, and creating an unforgettable guest experience.
