Over the past few years, there has been an increased focus on the need for safe and convenient park sites, both active and passive, to promote healthy living and to preserve open lands. At Mackie Consultants, LLC, our staff has the knowledge and understanding necessary to design and construct the most complex athletic facility or the simplest park site. We have worked with schools, park districts, municipalities and private developers to upgrade existing facilities and provide new athletic buildings, playgrounds and sports complexes.

Setting Guidelines

At Mackie Consultants, LLC, we enjoy the benefits and thrills from not only watching athletic events but also participating in them. This enthusiasm has translated into a knowledge and understanding of the needs and requirements in providing safe and suitable playing fields. These requirements include proper layout to meet the set guidelines for dimensions and safety, suitable drainage to allow for playing under different weather conditions and the corresponding accessories that allow for enjoyment at all levels.

Our portfolio includes the design and construction of single-use athletic facilites to sports complexes and sports centers with multiple uses. We have provided the necessary design and specifications to serve the stadium/field lighting, irrigation systems, and all related infrastructure.

Open Spaces

The preservation of open space provides many benefits to both communities and individuals. Open spaces may be adjacent to creeks and streams which offset the detriments of development by preserving the floodplain and natural filtering process. Mackie Consultants, LLC has worked with many developers and communities to enhance existing open space and allow for the preservation of new open spaces.
