Sign You Should Renovate Your Sports Complex Soon
No matter what you do, your sports complex will eventually need to undergo some renovations. Whether they’re big or small, they’ll become necessary at some point. Sometimes it’s because things are outdated, sometimes you just want to put in a new feature. Whatever the reasoning, it’s important to know whether or not a renovation is worthwhile for your sports complex. Today in the Sports Facilities Management blog we discuss how to know when your facility is ready for a renovation.
Customers are Taking Notice
This is a sign you need to renovate as soon as possible. If customers have begun to complain about the state of your sports complex, something needs to change. Ideally, you never let your facility get to this point. If it’s bad enough for the customers to be complaining, you’re probably in for a major renovation. This can be avoided by making small renovations where needed on a fairly regular basis and taking care to maintain what you already have.
You’re Implementing a New Feature
To add a new feature to your existing sports complex, some renovations will be necessary. Before making a big decision like this, it’s prudent to do some research and feasibility studies. It’s important to find out if your market is looking for the type of feature you’ll be adding. For instance, if you’re thinking of adding a climbing wall, but there’s already a dedicated climbing gym with a solid customer base in town, it might not be worth your time and effort. Renovations are usually a big undertaking, so the decision to make one shouldn’t be made lightly.
You Want to Improve Existing Features
Sometimes your equipment and sports complex doesn’t necessarily need a renovation, but it might make financial sense to do one. For instance, your current power setup may work fine for you, but maybe implementing solar power would save you money in the long run. Maybe you have equipment that still works well enough, but selling it and upgrading would cost the same as waiting for the equipment to break down before buying more. Working out the costs and the reasoning behind a renovation is essential to making the decision as to whether or not it’s a worthwhile venture.
