Architect’s Talk: Sports Engineering & Recreation Asia

Sports Engineering And Recreation Asia (Seara) has been playing an important support role to the hospitality and real estate sectors for two decades. Seara specializes in the planning, supply, and installation of international standard sports, recreation, and fitness amenities to resorts, real estate projects, and home buyers.

Beginning in 1991 from its Bangkok base, Seara now has nine offices in seven countries in Indo-China and South Asia in order to be close to customers and provide unrivaled customer service. Technical support, design, repairs, and warranty service is also available for acrylic, grass, and clay tennis, futsal, indoor and outdoor multi-purpose courts, putting greens, landscape grass, squash courts, playgrounds, jogging trails, and home and commercial fitness and specialty surfacing.

In the hospitality business recreation and fitness amenities are important capital assets, and are also must haves to create guest satisfaction. Branded properties especially require international standard indoor and outdoor products that meet specific athletic association certifications. Seara uses world class athletic surfacing brands such as Plexipave, ACTGlobal, Prestige, Rephouse, coupled with proven localized construction and installation techniques. Fitness in particular is now especially integrated into many concepts with near unlimited design possibilities.

One particular area in which the technology for hospitality installations has been changing rapidly is in synthetic rubber based fitness flooring. The utilization of laminated manufacturing and computer aided design and cutting techniques from Rephouse coupled with a mix of new and used colored EPDM rubber has proven to be a vastly superior looking and wearing solution over older, flammable, odor prone, SBR rubber floor tiles. The new designs are near seamless, easy to install, allow for endless design possibilities, and clean easily.
