A Healthy, Happy Community: Why Sports Complex Design Services Matter
Access to sports facilities in a community does so much more than offer a chance to exercise.
The Irricana Sports Complex in Irricana, Alberta is just one example of Berry’s expertise in sports complex design services.
Access to sports facilities in a community does so much more than offer a chance to exercise. Having a chance to participate in sports helps build confidence, foster relationships and build community.
By investing in a top-notch recreation centre, you’re investing in the health and longevity of your residents. Here are just some of the ways that an expert architectural firm contemplates sports complex design services to benefit your community.
For a community space to be successful, it needs to account for the people who will be using it. That means accessibility and inclusivity need to be at the forefront, whether it’s to accommodate an aging population, gender-diverse spaces or different physical abilities, your recreational space should be planned and designed with everyone from your community in mind.
Sustainable building design
Recreational spaces tend to be large, energy-intensive and costly. Modern designs take into account architecture’s role in energy use and climate impacts to lower the footprint of your building. The right architectural design firm is able to balance current standards like LEED certification with aesthetics and occupant comfort.
Serving a community means wearing many hats—and that includes spaces. By including versatile spaces that can serve several purposes, you maximize the potential of your centre. From yoga to tango to meeting room, think jack-of-all-trades when it comes to some of the spaces integrated into the design.
