Pie Scores Big in Sports Venues & Athletic/Recreation Facilities

Pie Consulting & Engineering continues to expand its portfolio of professional sports venues and athletic and recreation facilities around the country.

A leading provider of building and forensic science services, Pie recently was retained to provide enclosure consulting services on the new Minnesota United’s new major league soccer stadium in St. Paul as well as the new City of Louisville Recreation Center in Colorado and the new University of Minnesota’s Athletes Village.

“High profile projects such as sports venues provide an opportunity to be involved with an iconic part of the community;” said Ryan Krug, a project manager at Pie. “The challenge is that it will be enjoyed and scrutinized by millions of people over its service life. Pie provides the expertise to build it right the first time and have fans worry about the team rather than issues with the building.”

Pie’s building science services on these projects range from design review, shop drawing submittals, construction phase quality assurance observations and field performance testing.

“When thousands of people use a facility weekly, ensuring the performance of the building enclosure is essential,” Krug added. “While involvement of Pie at any time before construction begins will be beneficial to the project, early involvement in identifying wall assembly makeups and collaborating on design documents will have the largest impact on keeping the occupants safe and dry.”

These new projects add the other iconic athletic venues/facilities Pie currently is or recently worked on, including the new Colorado State University football stadium in Fort Collins, the US Bank Viking Stadium in Minneapolis and the stadiums at the University of Arkansas, Northern Arizona University, Colorado School of Mines and the University of Colorado in Boulder.
