Ballard*King & Associates was established in 1992 by Ken Ballard and Jeff King in response to the need for market-driven and reality-based planning for recreation facilities. B*K has achieved 20 years of success by realizing that each client’s needs are specific and unique. With over 50 combined years of facility management and planning experience in the collegiate, public, non-profit and private sector, our consulting firm has completed over 500 projects in 48 states and has working relationships with more than 100 architects coast-to-coast. We are also honored to be the recipient of five Athletic Business Facilities of Merit Awards.
B*K forms a consulting team that provides a variety of pre-and post-design services for clients who are considering construction of a sports, recreation, aquatic, or wellness facility. Our vast practical experience enables us to guide clients through the challenges of planning, constructing, opening and operating a facility. From pinpointing specifics to broad visions, B*K provides services to ensure the long-term success of your project.
B*K offers a broad range of services that can be integrated into a design team or contracted independently. Some of our services include: feasibility studies, operations analysis, maintenance cost estimates, revenue projections, staffing levels, budgeting, marketing plans and third party design review. Additionally, we perform audits for existing facilities as well as recreation master plans.
By bringing practical, proven experience to a project we can accurately represent the client’s best interests.
