“Mike had many site challenges posed to him, with our facility, and he was able to provide an extremely successful design in spite of these limitations (addressing underground utilities involving primary electrical duct banks and an 18 inch diameter high pressure gas line). The environmental restrictions were dealt with through his design, (protected oaks and indigenous trees), and the facilities are thriving and being enjoyed as some our most intensely used facilities in this City. We are very pleased and proud of our facilities that Mike McIntyre has delivered to us and look forward to future opportunities to work with him again”

They won the job through two rounds of highly competitive proposal review-the first for the conceptual design and public process, the second for the engineering/ construction drawing and construction management. In each phase they competed against other firms and designers that I know from extensive research are among the best in the business”

“Action Sports Design brings another level of design professionalism to trails and bike parks with Innovative Design, Engineering and Landscape Architecture as their specialties, but have a real passion for the recreational infrastructure itself and are an active part of the various user groups that it serves. Because of this, they are especially suited to manage public projects and bridge the gap between your average LA/Engineering types and the users themselves. It’s really a cool thing”.

“When researching for a licensed and insured Skate Park Architect/ Landscape Architect to team with us on multiple Colorado Skate Parks we did extensive research and reference checks. There was a consistent answer from the Municipalities and Design Firms to work with Michael McIntyre, Landscape Architect. The largest Action Sports park and NRPA Award winning Aurora, CO Wheel Park was designed and managed by Michael and the highly touted City of Boulder, CO skate park as well to name a few.
Nuszer-Kopatz ended up interviewing for the Parker and Brighton, CO Skate Parks with Michael McIntyre as the Principal Landscape/ Skate Park Architect for both projects with much success as we were awarded both projects. Michael assisted our team through both projects with clarity and professionalism resulting in two highly successful facilities.
I would recommend your City or Firm to work with Michael McIntyre, RLA, President of ACTION Sports Design, LLC. for your next Action Sports project. Professional, courteous, on time on budget what more can be said”
