    Surpassed only in population by Surrey and Vancouver, Burnaby is beautiful British Columbia’s third largest city and the site of one of our more recent projects.

    Working once again in tandem with RecSport, one of our partners in western Canada, we were commissioned to design, supply and install several fixed seats for the city’s Swangard Stadium.

    The historic stadium has been a fixture on the Burnaby landscape since it was erected after Vancouver Sun sports journalist, Erwin Swangard raised close to $1 million for the construction in 1969. Since that time, it has played host to many athletic events and served as the home field for the Simon Fraser University football team and was the home pitch of the Vancouver Whitecaps soccer team until 2010.

    While the project to expand the seating in the stadium to keep the Whitecaps playing there did not ever unfold, the stadium has been subject to a few renovations over the years. As it continues to play host to a variety of other local sporting events, the City of Burnaby was interested in replacing 32 seats in a section of the stadium.


    Working closely with our partners at RecSport, we could get an in-depth analysis of the project and design a solution to fit the city’s needs. Our design team came up with the plan while we organized the delivery of the 32 fixed seats to Burnaby where our partners would then undertake the remainder of the project.

    In addition to installing the new seating, we were commissioned to remove the existing seats and dispose of them, all of which was handled by the professional team at RecSport. Working closely with them through the entire project, the 32 seats were successfully installed and are now ready for use.
