The rugged beauty of the Canadian west is certainly something we will grow tired of any time soon and we were fortunate enough to experience it once again this year. Linking up with our partners at RecTec Industries located in picturesque Delta, British Columbia, they brought us a truly unique project at a local high school.
Located in the Vancouver suburb of Surrey, this project brought us to Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School, also known as Tweedy by the local community. Established in the early 1940s, the school was founded on the principles of social responsibility and student achievement.
With enrolment numbers of well over 2,000 students, the school’s athletic department was looking not only for some outdoor bleacher seating for their sports field but also for a pair of highly customized spotter stands as well.
The use of these spotter stations can vary from project to project but typically speaking, they are often utilized to provide score and time keepers with a bird’s eye view of the action or to provide unbeatable sightlines for photography and videography purposes.
The team at RecTec brought us the specifications and our team quickly got to work designing and manufacturing the products at our facility.
The spotter stands were each to feature a 14’ high deck accompanied by stairs, guardrails and a rooftop to protect spectators from the elements. Additionally, the school also ordered a pair of five-tier bleachers measuring 35’ in length to provide additional spectator seating for athletic events featuring the school’s beloved Panthers.
Once manufactured, the products were promptly shipped out to British Columbia and met by the installation team at RecTec. Once again, they put the finishing touches on a truly unique project, ensuring an efficient and safe installation and ultimately satisfied stakeholders.
