Abstract: Over the next decade, the majority of the building stock within the USA and across the globe will be renovated or replaced by new structures. During the construction process, local government building codes must be respected and adhered to in order to ensure the safety and protection of the community infrastructure and incorporated constituent activity. Interestingly, many building codes lack the normative position to adequately govern renovation activities such as preservation, reconstruction, rehabilitation and restoration. This particularly holds true when discussing large-scale construction projects such as sport and recreation venues. By first establishing that sport and recreation facilities are significant sources of community heritage, the main aim of this review is to raise public and managerial awareness about the need for new building codes (i.e., rehabilitation codes) that take sport and recreation facility renovation efforts into consideration.
