September 25, 2013 // Franchising.com // FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park, creator of the world’s first all-trampoline, walled playing court, has named Global Construction Associates LLC as its general contractor for the build out of its new Fort Lauderdale park.
To create Sky Zone Fort Lauderdale, Global Construction will utilize existing climate-controlled space at 1834 Southwest 2nd Street in Pompano Beach, Fla. 33069. The project will cost in excess of $1 million to install more than 15,000 square feet of trampoline surface. With the support of the architectural firm ArcVision, Global Construction will transform a 27,000 square foot warehouse into an all-trampoline park in less than three months. The first-rate facility will voluntarily comply with the new ASTM International standards released in June 2013.
“We’re pleased to be the contractor of choice for Sky Zone Fort Lauderdale and look forward to building what will be South Florida’s largest all-trampoline park,” said Whitney Peterson, president of Global Construction. “It’s rewarding to assist Sky Zone in bringing new jobs and a healthful activity to the Fort Lauderdale area.”
Set to open in late 2013, Sky Zone will defy gravity with its newest park, offering Fort Lauderdale residents and visitors the ultimate 3-D play experience. The all-trampoline walled courts are designed for optimal air time with popular activities such as Open Jump, Ultimate Dodgeball and SkyRobics. Freestyle flyers can also practice their moves as they soar into the giant Foam Pit. Sky Zone is available for every kind of outing, from birthday parties to organized collegiate tournaments.
