Seems like this time of year is buzzing with exciting competition. A new (sort of) Super Bowl champion has been crowned, March Madness is upon us and MLB players have reported to their summer digs down south.
Closer to home, most of us are seeing the light at the end of the wintry tunnel and gearing up for spring sports. From golf to soccer, baseball, basketball, football and about a dozen others – there is certainly no lack of options for athletes. And in recent years, there’s been a lot of exciting activity around sports venues in our area.
We’re seeing innovative new construction and upgrades on landmark facilities as clients invest in keeping arenas, fields, courts, courses and complexes in shape.
What shape that takes is another story. Nearly every sport has a different facility, and not surprisingly, the design considerations for each are as varied as the games they host. In this issue of Plains Talk, we’ll discuss possibly one of the most important (and often underestimated) elements of sports design – lighting. We’ll also share a few of the exciting projects we’ve either completed recently, or are working on now.
