If you’ve been fortunate enough to spend any time in the Maritimes on Canada’s east coast, as the saying goes, you’re fortunate enough. It’s always a pleasure to head down to beautiful New Brunswick and work with our partners in the area on new and exciting projects.
This time, we were united with our partners at Interior Visions in their home province. Looking to tackle yet another sizable job, we found ourselves at the drawing table for a brand new telescopic bleacher system. One of the area's largest community colleges, Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick (CCNB) was in search of some innovative seating for their gymnasium.
Serving as an exclusively French language post-secondary school, CCNB serves all of the Francophone and Acadian communities of New Brunswick and has since 1970. Having since expanded to five campuses across the province, CCNB has grown to be recognized as a top french language educational institution throughout eastern Canada.
While some facilities opt to install multiple small banks of telescopic bleachers, key stakeholders at CCNB instead wanted to design and install an impressive bleacher structure. Looking to have something that would fill the entire wall of the gymnasium, our team was determined to get this beautiful bleacher just right.
Using the school’s team colours, the bleacher was designed with the CCNB’s burnt orange colour and as an added touch, we included the school’s initials across the seating platform.
The final product is a beautiful 8-row structure measuring approximately 100 feet in length. As one can imagine, the attention to detail and design on a telescopic bleacher of this size is extremely important. Upon approval, our team got to work manufacturing the structure before promptly shipping it down east to meet our partners at Interior Visions.
Together with the client, the large bleacher was installed within a tight timeline and now provides a stunning seating structure that can house up to 455 spectators. As always, we would like to thank both CCNB and our partners at Interior Visions for the opportunity to participate in this unique project and look forward to many games filled with roaring fans in these new, state-of-the-art motorized bleachers.
