Sport facility design methods

When you are inside a sports facility, what’s the first thing you notice? Is it how clear you can see the competition, how many people it holds, how wide the seats are or how much walking space there is? Technology has really changed over the last 20 years, and now more than ever, sports owners are claiming that their stadiums are out-of-date. 

The classic stadiums that have been used in the past were built to be long-lasting but today there is a higher demand for suites, clubs and premium seating. With a new decade, let’s discuss what trends are coming in 2020. 


This generation is all about doing multiple things at the same time. One trend is to have a multifunctional space. Create a space that allows for outdoor activities but are not limited to specific hours during the day. 

With the use of technology continuing to increase, facilities are taking advantage of it as well. Technology can be a time saver, it can used to scan tickets with a hand held device, monitor the facility and so much more! Another change you should look into is high density shelving. This will help keep your facility organized and efficient. 

Climate change, this can affect your facility as well! If you are building an outdoor facility you want to protect it from the sun and rain. Polluted air can also generate more problems for your facility. If you are planning to build an indoor stadium, you might experience low energy resources during the building phase.
