Sports - Athletic Facility Design
City of Valparaiso Central Park Expansion, Valparaiso, IN Field Hockey/Soccer Complex , Iowa City, IA Benton Community School District Athletic Improvements, Van Horne, IA


Sporting events provide entertainment, strengthen community pride, foster a spirit of healthy competition, and promote active lifestyles. The right athletic facility can make a space come alive with enthusiasm and spirit, whether it’s a Class 1A outdoor football field that holds a few hundred fans or a Division I basketball arena that holds tens of thousands.

Shive-Hattery collaborates with K-12 and higher-education institutions to enhance the practice and competition facilities enjoyed by student athletes, family and friends, fans, financial supporters, and the public. We design and engineer solutions that can withstand constant activity, influxes of people, flexible uses, and less-than-ideal weather conditions.

Our goal is to help you create aesthetically appealing environments that enhance athletic ability, encourage sports program collaboration, bring people together, and promote economic growth – all while keeping safety and operating costs top priorities.

Architecture is exciting and the design of Sports Architecture takes that excitement to the next level. I am captivated by the roar of the crowd, the rush of the game and the spectacle of the stadium and arena. As a Sports Architect and Consultant, I am thrilled to help my clients create the total sports experience from the practice facilities, training rooms, team areas and concessions to the competition fields, tracks, stadiums, seating, branding and technology. You have goals; I have the team to help. Together, we’ll fuel your team’s athletic performance, fan base engagement and increase return on investment.   Sports are my passion and I enjoy learning as much as I can about each sport and my clients. As a civil engineer, I help school districts, colleges and cities with their athletic facility needs. I help clients realize all the possibilities their facilities can be used for while creating the most efficient design. To help each client make the best decisions, I learn and stay up-to-date about products and systems related to a variety of sports and share that knowledge with them.
