SPS bleacher [terrace] units were used to reprofile the existing stands of the University’s nearly 50 year old stadium, using SPS Technology’s innovative system of ‘overdecking’ the existing precast concrete rakers with newly designed and prefabricated modular bleacher stool sets.
The rapid erection cycle saw 60-80 bleachers (1,000-1,400 seats) installed in a working day, at the rate of roughly 5-8 minutes per bleacher. Included in the project were 3,625 new lower bowl seats including wheelchair spaces, as well as prefabricated ADA platforms.
SPS bleachers and components were delivered in eighteen 40ft open top containers – 28 bleacher units per container — pre-stacked in building sequence. A long-reach high capacity crane was used to lift the SPS bleacher units over the upper bowl and installed from each side onto new steel beams.
