Our Influence in the Sporting World

Our Influence in the Sporting World

Our expertise in this very specialist and technical field has not gone unnoticed and we have sat on British and European standards committees and worked with most of the industries national governing bodies.

We have been appointed as Design Advisor and Design Assessors for Sport England since 1998 and were the External Technical Assessors and Supervisors for one of the London 2012 Olympic facilities on the Olympic Park. In this role we have helped to author several Sport England design guidance documents, and have been involved in design reviews of hundreds of leisure centre projects either during their design or following completion of the schemes. This work has provided us with a unique opportunity to learn from the successes, and perhaps more importantly, the failures of these schemes. We bring the knowledge we have gained from this to each of our projects.
