The SPS Stadia+Arena System

Flexible in design. Quiet in Use.

The SPS Stadia+Arenas System composite grandstand terraces feel just like concrete but provide superior dynamic loading control with the added benefit of easy maintenance and will always look brand new. The modular flexibility and customizable properties of SPS mean that, just Like LEGO building blocks, we can explore endless creativity and construct virtually any structure!

Cut down on construction time with the SPS Modular System Approach

SPS® can help you sustainably renovate your existing venue or build from the ground up through modular, prefabricated construction. Our unique and intelligent building method sources components that are made off-site in our stringently controlled factory, which are subsequently transported to the venue site for assembly.

The SPS Stadia+Arena System modular process simplifies on-site building and cuts down on the overall construction process. With material savings of up to 30%, labor savings of up to 40% and a reduction in transport costs of up to 70%, all of which equates to up to 40% total cost savings.

SPS saves you time and money.

FASTER THAN TRADITIONAL SYSTEMS

This 'over-build' approach of the SPS System provided a very efficient construction schedule by minimizing the demolition needed, reducing the overall construction timeline and ultimately saving significant project costs for our client.

There is no doubt that SPS terraces provided the right solution for our tight timetable. [SPS Technology] and its partners delivered all that we were looking for. We are impressed with the high quality finish and performance of the SPS terraces and delighted that they met with the approval of our customers at Royal Ascot this year. With such obvious speed and quality advantages, SPS terraces must have a strong future in the stadium industry.

Charles BarnettChief Executive, Ascot Racecourse

The SPS system is one of the most accurate stadia systems we have worked with. The design process helped coordinate the accuracy of structural steel and eliminated unforeseen conditions. The engineers at SPS helped to coordinate and resolve complex expansion joint issue which were a huge concern for our unstable site.

PAUL S. GRIFFINFORMER DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS, GEORGIA TECH

SPS Terraces helped to deliver a uniquely demountable structure with the feel of a permanent venue with the opportunity for the whole structure to be resold after the games. A breakthrough in sustainable construction and a valuable legacy.
