Lawson Elser has developed a broad expertise in the design of sports and recreation facilities. We have successfully completed numerous sports related projects including: natatorium and swimming pools, football facilities, tennis facility, youth recreation and sports complexes, university recreation facilities, golf clubhouses, YMCA's, and the main grandstand building at Indiana Live horse racing track.
