So, you want to open a brand-new facility but you’re not quite sure what’s all involved in the process. Know this: from conception to delivery, your baby is going to be several years in the making.

Naturally, each firm has its own approach, but general concepts emerge that can be placed on a timeline for an average-sized multiuse facility accommodating fitness, aquatics, walking/jogging, court sports and community gathering in approximately 100,000 square feet and on a budget inside $100 million.
