Jake Ireland is one of our designers and dedicated drone pilot out of our Phoenix office. Outside of the office scene of working on various sports and civil projects, you can find Jake hitting the trails throughout Arizona. He enjoys mountain biking and running, and on the weekends you can find him on a 12-hour solo mountain bike race if there is one! But we wanted to highlight Jake with his recent accomplishment with his friends on completing the Black Canyon Ultras Marathon. This event is a 62 mile (100K) distance trail run, which Jake completed in 16 hours and 22 minutes, out of the 20 hour allotted time given to all racers. He finished 514 out of 704 racers that actually completed the course! Congratulations Jake!

Lloyd Sports + Engineering is excited to announce that Mr. Patrick Beazley has recently joined the Lloyd team this year. Mr. Beazley brings to Lloyd over a decade of sports engineering experience from Australia and New Zealand, including six years of civil and environmental engineering from one of Australia’s leading field of play civil design and engineering consulting firms. His experience also extends through a broad range of complex projects including development on landfill sites, floodplains, and within environmental constraints.
His technical expertise is supplemented by applied skills including a role as an assistant groundskeeper on the Brisbane Cricket Ground, one of Australia’s premier sporting venues.
Mr. Beazley’s experience has uniquely placed him to understand the importance of quality design, documentation, and construction practices, and their impacts on day-to-day grounds management and event delivery. Several of his key projects include the Sydney Football Stadium, North Queensland Stadium, and Western Sydney Stadium – all of which are utilized by Australia’s top rugby and soccer clubs.
Mr. Beazley’s initial assignment will be centered on the Phoenix market with projects for the Chandler Unified School District, leading technical and engineering sports design for the renovation of their six existing high school football stadiums.
His international transition to Lloyd Sports + Engineering was inspired by a genuine passion for sports and sports field engineering; the challenge of working on projects in one of the most sports—centric countries in the world; and the quality of the projects Lloyd’s brand is synonymous with.
