Consultations

Feasibility, Budget, Design and Engineering

All of our projects start in the consultation phase. After completing an on site visit or document study our team can assist in the following ways:

Building/Facility Analysis – New Construction or Remodel

  • Evaluate your proposed or existing building dimensional and structurally to contain and support an artificial climbing structure.
  • Inspect and evaluate the general condition of a climbing wall and it’s expected lifespan.
  • Asses the life cycle of an existing climbing wall including it’s overall design/usability compared to modern installations.
  • Climbing hold and equipment consultation and purchase order recommendations.

Preliminary Studies for Design, Budget & Schedule

  • Analyze areas being considered for new climbing walls.
  • Create a preliminary massing design to quantify the critical statistics of your climbing wall including;
    • square footage of climbing surface
    • primary support requirements
    • general angles and types of terrain
    • number of climbing lines
    • ingress and egress paths
    • general angles and types of terrain
    • site lines
    • fall zones
  • Develop a preliminary budget estimate, based on the massing design, to get a ROM of the anticipated costs of the new climbing wall. Can include quotes for flooring, equipment, holds and other products and services.
  • Estimated timelines for each phase, based on your specific project for planning purposes.

3D Climbing Wall Surface Design

  • Multiple lay-outs and designs can be prepared to show options for your space.
  • Further develop the initial massing design into a final design including:
    • specific shapes
    • sizes, angles
    • transitions of all facets of climbing surface

Preliminary Engineering

  • Review preliminary loading factors and complete a preliminary engineering study to share with your architect,
    engineer, general contractor, or local building department.
