Bentonville-based CEI Engineering Associates has picked up an important agreement that will grow its outdoor sports facility division in target-rich Texas.
CEI has an exclusive partnership with Kansas-based Mammoth Sports Construction. The company has built fields and facilities for teams in the NFL, Big 10, SEC, Big 12, MIAA, NSIC, NAIA and thousands of high schools.
Jeff Bresee works in CEI’s Dallas office and heads up the firm’s outdoor sports facility market. He said between Mammoth and CEI, schools seeking design-build services for sports facilities will have access to everything needed for a project, from fundraising strategy and creative marketing to master planning, design, logistics and sports construction.
“This partnership means trusted services for Texas schools with quality that will protect the investments of the school districts and universities,” Bresee said. “Schools and universities that we work with will be equipped and empowered with facilities that stand out and give them more of what they need to support and develop student-athletes, build better programs and increase connections with donors for fundraising.”
CEI has seven offices and more than 150 workers across the country.
Mammoth Sports Construction president Jake Farrant said the partnership would be a significant advantage for Texas schools because of the alignment between Mammoth and CEI regarding athletic industry relationships and construction projects.
“Sports in Texas stand out from the rest of the country, and the way CEI does business is superior in the industry,” Farrant said. “We identify each other as companies of integrity that hold a high standard, making this partnership the perfect answer for schools to benefit from fields engineered precisely and built for safety and longevity for a state that’s passionate about sports.”
