    Basketball courts located within housing complexes are always high-traffic areas, providing free entertainment, exercise and community engagement. But with consistent use and exposure to the elements, equipment such as basketball hoops, nets and backboards inevitably require repair or replacement.

    Recreation centres provide community members with access to a variety of resources. With intentional efforts made to promote inclusivity, programming can range from bingo for the elderly
    to after-school programs for children and swimming facilities for families. However, catering to a diverse community also presents challenges. For individuals with physical, cognitive, or behavioural challenges, these centres must also provide properly trained staff and additional accommodations in their buildings. With organizations such as the Dovercourt Recreation Centre, special attention has been placed on meeting the needs of those experiencing behavioural difficulties. To address the centre’s goal, our team was brought in to provide a safe “calming space” for their facility.

    Sports play a significant role in the lives of many students ranging from elementary school through high school.

    Towards the beginning of the summer, we introduced Marian High School to our readers while highlighting the Indoor Telescopic Bleachers that we provided for them. While most would expect a private, all-girls Catholic school to emphasize the value of extracurricular activities, Marian High School’s devotion to sports has earned them quite the reputation. Offering 11 Class A, state-sanctioned sports to their students, it was easy to see why the initial project we completed was so important. However, the addition of new indoor seating was only the beginning of our professional relationship with the school. Being recruited by the institution once again, our team began work on another seating solution — one that would be installed outdoors.
