Sandwich Plate System bleacher system was specified for this coliseum renovation at Abilene Christian University’s Moody Coliseum.
Originally built in 1968, Moody Coliseum is a multi-purpose indoor arena with a current capacity of 4,600 seats. It is home to the ACU Wildcats men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams, as well as functioning for other special events, including graduations, chapel services and concerts.
Prefabricated SPS arena deck system was chosen to re-profile the existing concrete, transforming the facility and saving considerable time and money. The regeneration project will result in upgraded sightlines and an improved 21st century spectator experience. With factory prefabrication, SPS is greatly improving the ease and speed of the on-site installation of:
• parapet walls
• balustrades and railings
• aisle steps
• vomitory walls
• ADA/VIP/media platforms
Planning began for a renovation of the Coliseum in 2019. SPS was selected to be part of the Design Build Team during 2020 and construction is underway [as of September 2021]. SPS Technology Network Partner Freedom Enterprise Inc. is currently installing the Stadiums + Arenas components. FEI were also the installing partner on Delaware Stadium.
