This last April, LDC sponsored a fun team-building event for the civil and planning groups at Arena Sports in Mill Creek, WA. This venue, which just opened for business a few months ago, was an extra special trip for our team as most of us at LDC have shared a part, in one way or another, in the development of this massive 98,000 square-foot family recreation facility. Residents of the cities of Mill Creek, Bothell, Lynnwood, Woodinville, and Everett had long awaited a center, other than a theater, that would capture the imagination of all ages and provide family entertainment year-round.
Our team had a fantastic time watching our project go from concept to design and permitting through construction, ultimately creating a facility we could enjoy as customers. As lead consultant, LDC provided Civil Engineering, Land Planning, Land Surveying, and project management support. This ginormous facility not only includes laser tag and bowling, but there are also three indoor soccer fields, an arcade, an inflatable fun zone, and a café.
Our team enjoyed a little competitive play with indoor laser tag and hitting the brand new lanes with our bowling shoes on. Later that evening, we enjoyed dinner together at the café and shared some of our specific experience on the project with one another with a sense pride and excitement about what we do for a living.
“I believe that I speak for all of us who worked on this local community project in saying that we were humbled to be such an instrumental part of the development of the Mill Creek Arena Sports center, which brings so much enjoyment and fun memories for thousands of people each week. It really is great to work in an industry that can have such a huge positive impact in your own community; we are blessed .”
