Skatepark designers and builders SITE Design Group (SDG) recently announced the addition of pro skater Chris Livingston to its staff. Livingston will be assisting Mike McIntyre, Brian Harper, and Dave Duncan with skatepark concept and design development drawing from his wealth of experience as a touring pro.

SDG has also hired Eric Mollencopf, Briggs Cunningham, and Greg Taylor. Mollencopf and Cunningham will head up SDG’s graphic design and Web department, while Taylor will assume the role of marketing director. All three have been skateboarding since the early 80s.

SDG’s RampSkin surfacing material can now be purchased as pre-drilled and pre-countersunk sheets to save builders time and money. Check out rampskin.com for details.

The RampSkin line of surfacing materials has grown to include the new RampArmor, which is designed as a lower priced, higher-quality alternative to the phenolic sheets commonly used on ramps. See ramparmor.com for details.

SDG should also be moving into its new facility in May. The new 25,000-square-foot warehouse will be home to SDG’s skatepark-design studios, RampSkin’s headquarters, and an indoor skatepark. Plans for the park include a 48-foot-wide vert ramp. For more information on SDG, check out sitedesigngroup.com.
