Roller sports and skate parks

Crowded skate parks and countless "scooter kids" without their own sports infrastructure. An image you might be familiar with?

When we talk about skate parks and roller sports parks nowadays, we are talking about a broad social acceptance, as well as a huge following of athletes. A development that should be taken into account when you want sports facilities that meet the needs. This is exactly what we are good at - designing and building skate and roller sports parks -that are broadly accepted. Orphaned skate parks are a thorn in our side and that's why we support you all the way from the first idea until the final roller sports facility that not only meets your needs, but is also target group oriented. May it be a scooter park for all children with a scooter, the renovation of an existing facility or a durable in-situ concrete facility for skateboards, scooters, BMX, longboards & everything else.  Together with you, we rethink open spaces, set the right focus in terms of movement promotion and location attractiveness. We help you to fully utilize the potential of skate and roller sports parks and to generate a positive impact for your community today and in the future.

How to build a skate park?

There are many different types of skatepark construction. If we take the cast-in-place concrete skatepark, for example, the procedure is not all that different from "normal" civil engineering projects, such as the construction of an underground parking garage. However, before the first machine starts shaping the cubatures of the skatepark, every project is preceded by a planning phase. The starting point is usually an initial consultation. If the area is known, a first preliminary draft can be created and based on this the further procedure is decided. Once the details have been clarified, the planning work enters the "hot" phase. What follows is the classic constructional implementation. Especially impressive is the manual work, the shaping at the end of the construction phase. If you would like to know all the steps in detail, then contact us for an initial consultation.

For whom is a skate park  suitable?

Originally, for the first "skate parks" drained pools were misappropriated and used exclusively by surfers. Since those early days, however, much has happened and with the construction of special roller sports facilities, the spectrum of users has expanded significantly. Basically, regardless of the sports equipment, a skate park must be designed specifically for beginners, beginners and children or for experienced athletes for experienced athletes. The degree of difficulty and risk of a facility depends on the speed of the users and only becomes higher when you can also ride faster. Or in other words, if you ride slowly, you don't have to worry about injuries. As for the choice of sports equipment, the rule for asphalt pump track is: anything that rolls. Mountain bike, city bike, skateboard, running bike, inline skates, scooter or wheelchair, everyone can have fun on the Pumptrack.

How much does a skate park cost?

It should be clear that the price of a skatepark depends on its size. Basically, however, the type of construction, in addition to the size, also has a decisive influence on the cost framework. A ramp skatepark with prefabricated skate elements on a simple asphalt surface is certainly the cheapest solution, but also the one with the greatest maintenance effort. If one decides on an in-situ concrete skate, another influencing factor besides the greater construction effort is the choice of planned features such as bowls, spines, ledges, etc. For example, a small in-situ concrete skatepark with only one bowl cannot be compared in terms of cost with a professional facility with numerous obstacles. Regardless of the size, the construction effort is crucial. On the other hand, of course, there are the cost savings due to the low maintenance costs. We have made the experience that even for larger communities the costs for an in-situ concrete skatepark are far below what would have to be invested in a new soccer field, for example.

What are the advantages of an in-situ concrete skatepark?

Clearly, the durability and all the other benefits that come with it. In-situ concrete skatepark are extremely low maintenance and do not require much upkeep. The facilities are very durable and, accordingly, resistant to most types of vandalism. A key advantage that is often not directly recognized is the low noise pollution of in-situ concrete skatepark. If you choose the right concrete, the skate park is one of the "quietest" sports facilities around. With a noise emission of about 80 DB, the skate park is much quieter than, for example, tennis courts or soccer fields.
