    Telescopic Bleacher Replacement for the Anglophone South School District

    Posted by Ryan Wilby

    Aug 21, 2023 5:00:00 AM


    For a number of years now, we’ve been helping the Anglophone South School District (ASSD) in beautiful New Brunswick update and upgrade their athletic facilities and equipment. Serving as one of only seven school districts that service the maritime province, their role in shaping the lives of future generations is something they take very seriously.

    Along with that role includes promoting health and safety across all of their schools and in their facilities. As we’ve mentioned many times before, a big part of what we do is assess aging equipment and replace those no longer deemed safe for use. A big portion of the unsafe equipment that we deal with are outdated telescopic bleachers.

    In the fall of 2021 we received an invitation to visit Loyalist College and tour the school’s football field. Located in Belleville, ON, our team made the trip to not only have a better feel for the facility, but to also meet with key stakeholders about future plans for the busy field.

    Loyalist’s women’s soccer program has been picking up steam over the past few years with more and more spectators attending their home games. In addition to the soccer club, the local football team, known as the Quinte Skyhawks is also making waves, using the field for their home bouts.

    Nestled southwest of the city of Barrie, Essa Township provides the perfect opportunity to residents looking for a rural lifestyle without sacrificing access to amenities. Located a mere 100 kilometers from Toronto, it also offers a commutable community to those working in Toronto and the surrounding areas.

    It was earlier this year when we were approached by key stakeholders from the township who were looking to make some improvements to a local baseball diamond. With over 25 sports fields, pads and facilities across the region, athletics and physical activity is something that residents in this family-oriented community value most.

    Unique product offerings attract unique projects and at one of our most recent opportunities in beautiful Boise, Idaho, a state-of-the-art facility found a home for one of our most specialized products. It was a couple of years ago when a sizable architectural firm in the United States reached out to us with questions regarding our high-humidity telescopic bleacher systems.

    Designed specifically for high-humidity areas such as pool decks, our product offering is very unique in its design. Constructed using a galvanized steel understructure paired with stainless-steel hardware, we are proud to be one of the very few supplying this highly specialized product in North America.

    Fire-Rated Safety Padding for Another Ontario High School

    Posted by Ryan Wilby

    Jun 19, 2023 6:19:44 AM


    As the need for highly-specialized padded rooms continues to grow, so too does our custom padding department. Working once again with our partners at King Carpentry - with whom we’ve done many of these rooms - our latest project brought us to the picturesque St. Lawrence Seaway.

    A call was placed from a high school in the area who saw our work in a neighbouring school and was looking to replicate the work. With a growing number of students in need of a safe and calming space to facilitate de-escalation and relaxation we were once again called to design and install a fire-rated safe room.

    Condemned Basketball System Replacement at University of Ottawa

    The University of Ottawa’s Gee-Gee’s basketball team has no shortage of legitimate ballers. After winning this year’s Wilson Cup over the rival Carleton Ravens, the men’s team has become a force to be reckoned with.

    As with any high-performing team, the equipment they practice and compete with on a daily basis is subject to a lot of wear and tear. Where we see the same equipment last much longer with primary-aged student athletes, the same is not true for college competition athletes playing at such a high level.

    Custom Gym Wall Padding for St. Anne Catholic School

    May 15, 2023 4:15:00 AM


    In a perfect world, every gymnasium would be identical, making producing the equipment and padding required for these facilities a breeze. What makes our work so fun and meaningful however, lies in the fact that this is not the case in any facility. 

    Having worked with thousands of gymnasiums, schools, community centres and post-secondary institutions around the world, we know that no two facilities or projects are alike. Although we love the variety working in this industry provides us, we’ve also grown to have a unique affinity for customized projects. Whether it’s a new set of grandstands for a university, a new basketball system for a community centre or completing a unique padding project, we love taking on a challenge and watching the solution come to fruition.
