Nestled along the Gaspé Peninsula in eastern Quebec lies the town of Matane. Bordered by the eastern province of New Brunswick, this picturesque area of Quebec runs along the south shore of the Saint Lawrence River.
The area was once a haven for fisheries, forestry and agriculture but has since become a tourist destination, attracting visitors from around the world. Home to a number of National Parks, the peninsula is an eco-tourist’s dream and is offers a unique opportunity to spot whales from within the province of Quebec.
One of our more recent projects gave us the opportunity to work in this unique landscape as we were awarded a tendered contract to provide Cégep de Matane with a new bank of telescopic bleachers. Providing students in the region with a pre-university and technical college, the school’s programming gives students the skills needed to continue in post-secondary education.
As part of a larger construction project, our partners at Duotech Construction reached out to our team to handle the seating requirements specified. As we worked closely with the organization and key stakeholders from the school, we were able to design a compact and retractable seating system that could be placed inside the gymnasium.
Once the design stage was completed, our installation partners at CISI were once again on the ground to provide a stellar installation.
The manually-operated bleachers, rising to just three-rows in height, satisfy the school’s needs and will provide students and spectators alike with adequate seating inside the gymnasium for years to come.
