The construction costs associated with sport projects covers a huge range of structures. They range from small, often individual fitness centers to elaborate multi-functional spaces and swimming pools. The increasing emphasis on healthy living with the encouragement of sport/fitness and the perceived health benefits has been a driver of this sector throughout Europe. This is encouraged by the state who are often major investors in this sector and if not active participants in the investment are certainly encouraging the increasing provision. The standards are often requiring basic utilitarian construction but at the upper end of the market greater levels of luxury are more common. Europe has seen the increase in numbers of large international standard stadiums, often initially constructed for specific events, Olympics, Football World Cup. These are usually very expensive items and the common experience between the Alliance members offers a large repository of experience.
