leisure consultants

Burke Rickhards have vast experience across the sports and leisure sector, which gives us an unrivalled understanding of the operational needs and safety standards that have a direct impact on the design of sports facilities.

Investing significantly in the sports and leisure industry, the practice’s expertise and reputation was given recognition in 1996 when it was one of only a few practices to be appointed as an “Expert Advisor” to the Sports Council Lottery Fund of England.

In more recent years in conjunction with clients – Parkwood Projects, Burke Rickhards has been responsible for delivering several major leisure projects under the P.F.I and P.P.P procurement process.

Major projects have been secured by the practice being directly appointed by local authorities.

In the area of sports and leisure the practice’s reputation goes from strength to strength in delivering attractive, sustainable and value for money projects on time and on budget.

Our continued aim is to set new standards for sport, leisure and swimming pool facilities, also being aware that rising energy costs represent one of the biggest challenges facing the sport and recreation industry.
