The Skatepark Design Process
SPA Skateparks offers industry leading design services of integrated, site built concrete skateparks. Our team is comprised of registered professionals and skatepark designers who are passionate skateboarders. It is our mission to perfectly balance the built hardscape with the natural environment, functioning as both world class skateboard terrain and public spaces enjoyed by the entire community.
SPA Skateparks offers an extremely thorough and collaborative skatepark public input process. Our skatepark designers and consultants meet with user group to discuss desired skatepark terrain and obstacles. We also educate the community at large on modern day skateparks and how we integrate these active areas into existing park systems. Involving city officials, the community, and active youth throughout this entire process is essential in creating a sense of stewardship for the facility.
Once a final concept design direction is approved by both the user group and the City, SPA Skateparks continues to develop construction documents and accompanying specifications. These documents are then sealed by a registered landscape architect. Any construction details requiring other licensed professionals may be obtained on an as-needed basis. As a leading skatepark construction contractor, SPA Skateparks offers turn key design-build skatepark services. Alternatively, SPA may be contracted as your skatepark construction management team to ensure quality execution of the project through completion.

Skatepark Green Design
SPA Skateparks is on the forefront of green skatepark design and construction efforts, by developing and implementing environmentally friendly techniques as part of a genuine corporate responsibility. We are experienced in many types of skatepark drainage and storm systems including bio filtration planters and directional slab surface grading. Skate park specific light pollution reduction techniques are also considered and may include integral colored concrete and designated planter areas to minimize reflection from the built hardscape. The skatepark shotcrete process used to apply concrete to transitional and vertical walls and requires up to 40% less forming materials than traditional cast-in-place methods. Our team's continued education of green building skatepark techniques is a part of our company's culture and we look forward to implementing these practices in your skatepark.
