Movement and the outdoors: creating spaces for mind, body and soul.

Driven by passion and executed with practice – these athletic cornerstones translate to DCI’s design philosophy where we’ve helped deliver high performance structures for athletes both seasoned and new, and as community-minded retreats and outdoor sanctuaries.

Our work

From long-span athletic facilities to community recreation centers, DCI’s sports & recreation projects embody functionality and performance. Many times, these projects depend on an open area where structure is out of the way – or the structure itself is part of the recreation. Special considerations also include the number of occupants, vibrations, acoustics, flexible floor plans and programming for pools, raised indoor tracks, climbing structures and more.

When it comes to this arena, DCI doesn’t play games with dependable design.
