What We Do

Sports Renovation and Management enters Facilities Management Agreements to operate public recreation facilities, thereby reducing our government partners’ financial burden while providing well-maintained and regularly visited facilities.

Our project analyses, which precede a Facilities Management Proposal, include the following:

Market Research

Determine your market size including existing and potential teams in various sports, age groups, and price points of other facilities in your region.

Economic Impact Studies

Calculate the economic impact your region can expect through the addition of an SRM-operated facility.

Feasibility Studies

Perform research and analyses necessary to determine if your market can support an upgraded facility including; operational pro forma, market rate study, assessment of competition, etc.

Site Analysis

Review facility site(s) to ascertain location, visibility, accessibility, issues related to neighboring property owners, traffic concerns, lighting concerns, etc.


Communicate with elected officials, staff, local sports organizations and neighborhood groups to ensure the community’s needs and concerns are addressed.

Value Engineering/Design

Work with the architectural design team to help identify cost-effective design, construction, and green technology applications to reduce costs, add value and increase playability.


Beginning early in the project, provide communication to the region with respect to the features and benefits of your “re-born” recreation facility.

Public Meetings

Attend and present at public meetings, council meetings, and community meetings as needed to foster support and achieve a positive outcome.

“Team sports continued to gain momentum, adding 2% from 2015 and averaging a 5% increase over the last three years.”

(2016 Sports Participation Report by the Physical Activity Council)


“Tourism depends on attractions…In most communities, primary attractions are sports tournaments, festivals, parks, and major recreation facilities operated by park and recreation departments. However, most stakeholders remain unaware of park and recreation departments’ role in tourism.”
