Athletic and Entertainment Complexes
Athletic & Entertainment | Retail Construction | Development | Brokerage
Wildly popular sports and entertainment complexes and studio gyms have been sprouting up around the Twin Cities in recent years, and EFH has been involved in the brokerage, development and construction of many of them, including Midwest Volleyball, SoccerBlast, Grand Slam, Brunswick Zone, Indoor Golf, Sparrow Studios (yoga), Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping, Crossfit South Metro and more.
Special consideration for the design, development and construction of these facilities goes far beyond easy access, high visibility and high parking ratios. Specialized construction materials and installation methods were used to permit clear spans allowing for large playing fields and special turfs/flooring. Facilities required proper lighting, often with protective lenses, and acoustical treatments and technical HVAC systems to accommodate proper temperature and humidity control for large numbers of athletes and fans throughout arenas. Installation of fitness studios, gyms and auxiliary areas such as locker rooms, concessions, training/workout spaces, games/entertainment, restrooms and retail space rounded out these multi-functional facilities.
