Design

Hardcore Design Studios provides professional design services geared to create a completely custom skatepark design that is unique to your community. Our team of professional Skateboarders, BMX riders, Landscape Architects, and Graphic artists will work directly with your community to generate ideas and develop your dream park. We then provide you with high quality renderings of your design along with a fly-through video and breakdown listing the quantities of materials needed to build your park.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Hardcore Design Studios will host a live meeting with your local riders to shape a design that is unique to your community. Our team specializes in translating community ideas into a workable plan that meets your budget.
SITE REVIEW
We will review your project site to determine opportunities and constraints and discuss the best placement for the skatepark features. Additionally our team will consider items such as adjacent land use, drainage flow, and the best locations for spectators to view the skatepark activity.
3D ILLUSTRATIONS
Our team of professional Skateboarders and BMX Riders will create a 3D design based on the feedback from the community meeting. We will provide hard-copy prints, posters, digital files of your 3-D design including multiple perspective and top views, zoom-ins of specific features, and superimposed site views.
Video VIDEO FLY-THROUGH
We also will create a video fly through of your final design concept provided to you on a DVD. This video can be easily uploaded to your Facebook or YouTube page to share the progress and build excitement for your project.
CADscreenshot COST ESTIMATE
Your concept design package also includes a cost estimate based on recent construction costs of similar sized skateparks. Our estimates account for State prevailing wage requirements and regional material availability while providing a clear goal for fundraising and grant applications.
LandArch LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
Our Landscape Architect will review the designs aesthetic appeal and incorporate integral color, stamped concrete textures, landforms, and solar lighting to the skatepark. Our goal is that your skatepark not only be highly functional but also visually spectacular.
Materials MATERIALS QUANTITIES
In order to approach local donors you need to be prepared with a clear description of the materials and quantities needed to build the skatepark. With your concept package we provide you an itemized list to use for soliciting in-kind donations for your project.
Sustainable SUSTAINABLE APPROACH
Hardcore Design Studios supports an integrated team approach to skatepark design. Potential environmental impacts are analyzed throughout the process in an effort to conserve habitats, control stormwater, and create a long lasting and sustainable skatepark. Our team includes LEED Green Associates to assist in environmental stewardship from design through construction.
Drawings DETAILED DRAWINGS
Skatepark construction requires very detailed plans outlining how every inch of the park is to be built. We engineer and depict the size, length, radius, material, and dimension of every element in the skatepark. All surface area slope calculations are provided along with drawings detailing every connection in the park. These drawings are the blueprints to ensure your projects success.
Specs
SPECIFICATIONS
In addition to the detailed drawings, a book of written specifications is necessary to complete the level of detail needed to relay all project information to your builder. Our skatepark specification book includes all concrete mix designs, metal fabrication charts, and reinforcement strength requirements to ensure your skatepark is built to the highest standard.
Qualifications PREQUALIFICATION FORMS
Skatepark construction requires very specific material types, sizes, and placement tolerances in order to achieve the optimum skating experience. By prequalifying contractors you get the peace of mind knowing that the builder of your skatepark is experienced and motivated to make your skatepark project a success.
Bids
BID ASSISTANCE
The last step is to solicit bids for the construction of your skatepark. By advertising for competitive bids with our Construction Document Package, you are assured to get true “apples to apples” bids from qualified skatepark builders.
