Athletic facilities are centers of sport, recreation, and community, and with as many athletes, spectators, and support staff as these facilities hold, it's essential that their MEP systems support their use and capacity. This may mean larger units for greater cooling capacity, higher outside air requirements, specific lighting requirements for television, or silencers to attenuate noise. We have experience in designing MEP systems for arenas, gymnasiums, recreation centers, and natatoriums for clients including K-12 school districts, higher education institutions, senior living facilities, and municipalities. We are also skilled in the necessary design considerations for swimming pools, including the positioning of lighting to prevent glare and ensure lifeguard visibility, special exhaust systems for chlorine storage, and heat recovery from HVAC systems to control pool water temperature. Cleary Zimmermann also offers Commissioning services to ensure your facility's systems, whether in a stadium or recreation center, run as they should. No matter the type or scale of athletic facility you're looking for, just tell us your desired occupancy, size, and systems types, and we will provide MEP design that optimizes your athletes' performance and ensures the comfort of your audience.

The biggest challenge, quite literally, with athletic projects is scale. With all of the people, equipment, and systems that must be included, the question becomes: how do we make everything fit?
