Custom Design Service Includes:
1. Community Engagement
American Ramp Company will host a live meeting with your local riders to shape a design that is unique to your community. Our team specializes in translating community ideas into a workable plan that meets your budget.
2. Site Review
We will review your project site to determine opportunities and constraints and discuss the best placement for the skatepark features. Additionally, our team will consider items such as adjacent land use, drainage flow, and the best locations for spectators to view the skatepark activity.
3. 3D Illustrations
Our team of professional Skateboarders and BMX Riders will create a 3D design based on the feedback from the community meeting. We will provide hard-copy prints, posters, digital files of your 3-D design including multiple perspective and top views, zoom-ins of specific features, and superimposed site views.

We also will create a video fly through of your final design concept provided to you on a DVD. This video can be easily uploaded to your Facebook or YouTube page to share the progress and build excitement for your project.

Your concept design package also includes a cost estimate based on recent construction costs of similar sized skateparks. Our estimates account for State prevailing wage requirements and regional material availability while providing a clear goal for fundraising and grant applications.
6. Material Quantities
In order to approach local donors, you need to be prepared with a clear description of the materials and quantities needed to build the skatepark. With your concept package we provide you an itemized list to use for soliciting in-kind donations for your project.
