Choosing the optimal site is the key for a successful project so it´s recommended that we are included in this process. Every site is unique and has to go through the process of evaluating a particular locations physical and social characteristics, with the ambition of developing solution that will address and enhance its internal and external context.

The below list highlits some of the key areas that should be investigated;

  • General – geographic location, site boundary, entrance locations, site security, …
  • Neighbouring buildings – distances, uses, noise levels, …
  • Legal restrictions – conservation areas, tree preservation orders, rights of way, …
  • Access – public routes, emergency vehicle access, existing routes within, …
  • Typography -levels, key features, restrictions, …
  • Sun paths – sun paths, shading
  • Trees and vegetation – root protection areas, items for removal / maintain,…



We at Pivotech believe that every single project has a unique story that can be represented through authentic skateapark architecture in a cost-effective manner that is catered to the needs and scope of the community that we are servicing. A concept is an idea that forms the backbone and foundation of a skatepark design and becomes the identity behind a projects progress and is consistently consulted throughout every stage of its development

The concept is developed together with the users / client from three key areas;

  • The site – orientation, access, context, history, use, …
  • Design brief – client and skaters (users) requirements, budget, …
  • Skatepark typology – skatepark type, other program, use

The goal of a 3D model is to build a representation of the prospective project. The model helps plan out each step and determine the viability of different decisions moving forward. Building a 3D model starts already in the design brief and is changed and adjusted as the project progresses. With 3D model and visualizations, the client / future users get a complete view of the ongoing / finished project so that they can come up with necessary opinions and recommendations. Besides, these drawings enable the builders of the skatepark to detect possible errors before the construction process starts.

Key advantages of 3D skatepark models;

  • Project visualization – allowing to better understand the scope of the project
  • Selling the project – raising the funds for the skatepark realization
  • Improving project speed – helps builders save time in the construction process
  • Precision and control – ultimate control over precision prevents mistakes

When the final design is approved by the client / users the project needs construction documents to apply and receive a building permit or other local authority and to build the skatepark as well as start the tender process. Although the design of the skatepark doesn´t change, for clarity we generally prepare two sets of drawings for the two purposes – the building permitand the issue for construction set – so that we don´t provide unnecessary information to either party. Apart from drawing the construction documents consists of overall project information and technical description.

Drawings that are usually included in the complete drawings document;

  • Situation plan
  • Land planing and height plan
  • Equipment and vegetation plan
  • Overall sections and type section
  • Detail drawings
  • Illustrations
