Where to start? When starting an outdoor athletic facility, whether it is only one field or has many different components, all parties involved in this decision have ideas of what they want in the project. This is the "Wish List". The design also needs to fit into a quality, budget-minded, workable plan. This is where Sports Design Group comes to meet the Client. Mr. McDonald brings his expertise to help the Client analysis what the final project will look like. An understanding of all of the various available sports surfaces and their diverse performance characteristics is critical to providing a comprehensive design for the Client.


Responding to our clients is what we are about. It is why Sports Design Group has so many repeat clients. The quality control of our work has given us a strong reputation in the sports industry. Numerous times we have had to reject building materials that did not live up to our specifications and industry contractors have come to realize that we will not accept anything less. Detailed plans, specifications and frequent on site construction inspections have given us great respect within the industry which relates to the highest quality of work on our projects.

Construction Management

Besides a well designed project, construction management is one of the real keys in the “making” of a great project. Sports Design Group experience has taught us that construction testing, adhering closely to the plans and specifications and supervision while under construction are critical aspects of a successful project. Sports Design Group monitors and documents any changes made during the construction of the project. This monitoring helps identify elements of the project that may become a concern. This enables Sports Design Group to make decisions quickly to avoid excessive costs or delays on the project.
