SPS Technology is proud to be a part of the Delaware University Delaware Stadium renovation project, delivering improved outdoor bleacher seating for an improved spectator experience at the home of the University of Delaware BlueHens. Along with architect HOK, contract manager Barton Mallow, Engineers EDiS Company and installers SPS Technology Network Partner, Freedom Enterprise Inc, SPS is a part of this first step in the grand plan for rejuvenating the Whitney Athletics Centre for the Blue Hens of today and tomorrow.
In the grandstand, SPS provided the opportunity to use the existing structure and reprofile the terraces, to provide extended treads for the VIP Fan some extra comfort. SPS is lighter than concrete yet strong and doesn’t crack. The project is being completed in time for the 2019 Autumn football season and the ability to rapidly install 40-50 SPS panels per crew/shift has been advantageous. 6,000 seats has been installed in just 5 days. Such rapid installation has been aided by factory fitted mounted fasteners and pre-drilled fixing holes in the SPS terraces. The terraces have been colour matched to suit the team’s brand and easily mounted ADA platforms have also been supplied.
For more information about how SPS Technology can deliver stadium seating for your project, please read more on our Stadiums+Arenas page. We have extensive experience with a variety of different types of projects from new build high capacity stadium stands such as San Jose Earthquakes Avaya Stadium through to existing venues in need of a more modern spectator experience like Abilene Christian University’s Moody Coliseum.
