Stadiums + Arenas

Venue owners and architects need look no further than SPS Technology’s Sandwich Plate System (SPS) for construction of bleacher stands, terraces, grandstands, platforms and other components for their Stadium + Arena needs. 

Overview

SPS Terraces

Transform the lifecycle of Stadiums + Arenas

SPS Technology offers the most quickly installed and architecturally versatile heavy-duty stadium product on the market today. Our modular structural composite, SPS, is in use at some of the most high-profile venues in the world and can be delivered through our global SPS Technology Partner Network.

SPS products do not crack, spall, separate or rupture. With a very high strength-to-weight ratio, and with lighter frames and fewer foundations, SPS bleacher stand products can transform the whole lifecycle of stadiums and arenas while delivering greater design options compared to traditional materials.  Existing venues can be sustainably renovated, thus extending their life via reprofiling and ‘over decking’, with the enhanced sight lines essential for a modern guest experience.

Prefabricated SPS bleacher stands arrive factory finished: ready for the immediate installation of seats and handrails, with coatings applied and attachment holes drilled. SPS can be manufactured to include colours of your choice.  Flexible in design, quiet in use, with the feel of concrete and superior dynamic loading control, stain-resistant SPS composite bleacher stands are easy to maintain and always look brand new.

Modular build benefits and savings

  • fewer structural supports and foundations;
  • material savings of up to 30%;
  • labour savings of up to 40%;
  • reduction in transport costs of up to 70%; 
  • shorter construction schedules; 
  • facility flexibility with owners able to modify layouts quickly and easily
  • This equates to overall potential savings of 15-20% for a typical stadium project.

SPS is one of the few products that can help arena owners renovate an existing stadium to a modern experience. It offers a faster, more sustainable solution.

Projects are overseen by our international partners, including a dedicated network of Stadium + Arena experts across North America.

Designs are fire rated to two hours and meet international stadium and arena building standards for structural strength and safety, audience comfort and seating unit support.  We have approvals from all major regulatory and code compliance bodies including IAPMO, OSHA and the ICC. SPS is well received by planning authorities and owners looking for environmentally friendly solutions. 

Applications

SPS Stadiums + Arenas offer the strongest and lightest heavy-duty stadia product on the market today. Modern SPS composite bleacher stands are flexible in design, stain resistant, and offer superior dynamic loading control and always look brand new.

SPS stadia can achieve the architects’ vision including that sought-after parabolic shape with single, double and triple-step riser heights in the same bay of stands.  Straight sections can span up to 55ft between columns, providing large unrestricted waterproof space below the stands for offices, restaurants and concession stands.  Segmented sections of SPS can easily create the round ‘inside corner’ look.  SPS Technology’s expertise has often been used to renovate existing stadiums. 

Specifying SPS for your stadium or arena reduces trades on site, eliminates wet-work, gives the solid feel of concrete without the need for huge foundations and supporting structure. Designing with SPS provides other project benefits by significantly speeding installation and fit-out and reduces over-all installation time and budget
