    Why don't you ask your architect friend who it is?

    I've heard some rumors that a few were planning something along the 60, between the 605 and the 57. But so far, nothing concrete.

    I do not think you need $10 million dollar to open one.
    Just find empty warehouse and paint the concrete

    After all, is it what SGBC did for the last few years

    Sir, you do not know The Code in the City of Los Angeles, which is among the most stringent in the nation. Heck, if not the world. To open a private badminton club in Los Angeles is very difficult because of passing all the fire, earthquake...safety codes. Not to mention the city hearings. People will object just because they can; and for no rhyme or reason. It's not easy.

    The easiest way to open a dedicated badminton facility would be through an educational or city operated means or maybe an unused, abandoned air hangar. Otherwise, it's nearly impossible.

    ..and actually **all** the rules and codes in the whole U.S. are arguably the most stringent and strictest in the whole world; not only in L.A. or California alone and not only related to buildings..
    And IMO, the main reason behind it, is safety...But even then, there are still lapses and rules/codes being "neglected" or "overlooked"..
    ..and sometimes if the baddy facility is located in a property shared w/ other businesses, even just to get an approval for the parking space issue, from the other tenants/business owners, could be so much of a hassle..

    I dislike arguing and going back and forth but I need to clarify some things. This is the last time I'm going to do so on BC.

    Chris, your comments below are basically why I stopped posting on BC: either false information, inaccuracies or "opinions" when one simply does not know or is not clear on the subject.

    You comments are not all accurate below. Are you an expert on building code? Are you an authorized inspector in California or at all? My father is and has been working in SoCal for over 30 years. His California GE is in the 200s, his RCE is in the 20,000s. I have helped my father for over 15 years so I would say I know a bit more about City Code than the average Joe, would you not agree?

    To clarify, yes, the U.S. has among the strictest code of any country but the State of California is by far the strictest among the states. You cannot compare California Building Code to say Texas or Montana. The requirements are night and day.

    And you cannot say rules are overlooked or neglected in the State of California because that is simply not true. Just ask William of ABC.

    So, please stop.

    Default A bit off topic-Just a bit of clarification..

    Oy Dan,
    it's okay...thanks for letting your feelings known. And really, i don't mind if you think what i posted was "false", "inaccurate" or simply "opinions"...But if you don't mind, i'd like to clarify a bit on what i wrote (there might be a bit of misunderstanding)..

    I concur w/everything what you wrote in your prior post (#7) and that's why i titled my post "True...". I was simply adding to what you wrote...
    - Yes, i believe & concur w/you also that California and other states have different codes/rules/regulations. But i also never mentioned nor compared different states' rules/codes/regulations. In my post, however, I was merely stating that, the U.S. as a **whole** has the stringest and strictest rules/codes/regulations (not only building-wise) in the whole world, in comparison to other countries. I'm not trying to compare the state of CA to NV or TX codes/rules/regulations..
    - The reason why i believe rules/codes/regulations are **sometimes** overlooked or even neglected by the builder/architect/contractor is because i've seen them in my profession. No, i'm not a professional engineer, nor expert on building codes, but i know and have seen in my current profession (office) we (esp. all the PMs) have to study & apply all the codes/rules/regulations that are in the California Building Code handbooks/manual, if we expect to get a permit/stamp approval from the city/government, for every project(s). Basically, what i meant by "sometimes we overlook or neglect the rules/codes/regulations" was, usually if we don't get a permit/wet-signature stamp from the city/govt. after we submit the Construction Documents, it means that we have to go back and do revisions to those "overlooked" and "neglected" codes/rules/regulations. May it be through Change Orders, Instruction Bulletins, EJL (Engineering Judgment Letter) and so forth and so on and so on, in order for us to get it approved/stamped...And in some cases, yes, i've seen actual built restrooms/rooms being built not according to the rules/codes/regulations (thru field survey). Yes, it's a big headache & a loooot of paperworks; but if that's what the California govt./city requires then we have no choice but to follow them.

    And that's why, i mentioned, IMO, the main reason behind all of those stringent and strict codes/rules/regulations is because here in the U.S., the priority is safety. Not only in buildings, but it applies to foods, health system, school system etc.
    Of course, lawyers and all those legal issues will come into play..but it's a whole different matter..

    Anyways, well, so much as for me revealing what i do

    *About William (ABC), well, i can understand what he is going through, eventhough i'm not entirely in his shoes.

    Anyways, please don't stop posting in BC, Dan..I think all we need is just some minor clarification in these kinds of issues, if there are some misunderstandings...

    perhaps it will be faster to ask Nintendo to develop a badminton game
