Building Athletic & Recreation Facilities

When we build athletic or recreational venues, we know we're doing much more than construction. We're building places where people express the core values of personal achievement, teamwork, training … and excellence through extraordinary effort. These are the same values we bring, when we build your field or facility.

PLANNING

Our experience benefits your project from concept to completion. During all phases of construction, we'll help your venue integrate site conditions, support spaces, safety considerations and future expansion — with an eye to maximizing your budget.

PRECISION

Whether it's a pool or a field, the tolerance specified on these builds is exacting. We keep micro and macro approaches in mind at all times. We understand how the large athletic spaces need to integrate, but can achieve a ½-inch grade specification on your soccer field.

SCHEDULE

Whether it's that first home game or a sports center that needs to open by Memorial Day, your calendar drives our calendar. Our jobsite protocols maximize efficiency and we'll usually have you open ahead of schedule.

THE SENTINELS OF WAHLUKE

That's the inscription on a plaque in the central commons at Wahluke High School in Mattawa, Washington.

When Walker construction undertook the construction of this new high-school, we knew how important athletics — and athletic excellence — was to the district … and the students. We built the fields and sports facilities with as much care and attention to detail as we did the school itself.
