JMI Sports provides project management services to professional teams, universities and municipalities seeking to build or renovate major sports venues and practice facilities. Approaching each project with an owner’s perspective and an unparalleled attention to detail, we enhance a client’s vision and bring it to fruition. Engaging JMI Sports ensures that every aspect of a project is closely monitored, thereby mitigating risk and providing the greatest return on investment to all stakeholders. Leadership is offered in every project phase, from conceptual planning, pre-development and design, to construction and move-in. Our expertise in the business of sports also serves to identify revenue opportunities, develop operational efficiencies and improve the fan and player experience, adding considerable long-term value to a venue.

Predevelopment Planning

Our team reviews potential sites for a facility and assists in determining which is optimal. We create detailed project budgets and schedules and provide critical guidance in navigating the master planning process. Our sports expertise is applied as we work to develop a specific program for each scope element, then oversee the development of the conceptual design to incorporate both the client’s program and their desired look and feel.

Design Management

JMI Sports works closely with our clients to bring the project architect on board and negotiate their contract. We take a hands-on approach to managing the design team and overseeing the evolution of the building’s design, which includes program development, architectural and consultant drawing reviews and negotiating additional service requests. Throughout the process, our goal is to design a sports facility within the client’s budget that both fulfills their programmatic goals and exceeds their aesthetic expectations.

Construction Management

On behalf of our clients, JMI Sports spearheads the competitive selection process for the construction contractor, negotiates their contract and finalizes the GMP. In managing the construction team, our unwavering attention to detail is applied, ensuring the facility is delivered on-budget and ready for opening day. Typical services include: budget management, schedule management, construction documentation review, change order negotiation and budget reconciliation. Beyond traditional construction management, JMI Sports also oversees entitlements, environmental approvals and the multi-faceted permitting processes on our complex sports projects.

Additional Services

Given our extensive experience in both facility development and sports business operations, JMI Sports offers many additional services that can help mobilize a sports venue project and add considerable long-term value, including, but not limited to: feasibility studies, revenue modeling, facility assessments, team procurement, community outreach, third-party program/design review, FF&E oversight and dashboard online management.
