As we move into the new school year, we mark the completion of a record breaking summer season for the replacement of retractable bleachers for us at Sport Systems. Our most recent telescopic bleacher replacement project was a big help in pushing us over the top.
Back in July, we were commissioned by MGP Architects-Engineer Inc. on behalf of the Algoma District School Board. The project required us not only to remove and dispose of their existing wooden bleachers, but also to supply and install our 2400 series KODIAK Telescopic Bleacher Systems in three schools across the School Board.
Given the timing of the project, it was obvious that we were going to be under some tight timelines in order to have the deliverables completed before the start of the school year.
We quickly got to work immediately after the contract was awarded, operating as the general contractor to oversee the removal and disposal of the existing bleachers on site, as well as any corresponding electrical work. The existing bleachers had to be removed in a timely fashion, allowing the care staff at each institution enough time to perform any and all floor resurfacing and maintenance as needed.
All of the lumber from the existing bleachers was salvaged and was given to each school’s wood shops for future educational use.
Meanwhile our team was busy designing and manufacturing the retractable bleacher systems that would then be installed at each of the three sites, spread across an approximate 600km radius. Upon delivery, each school received their brand new telescopic bleachers complete with electric operation, custom colour oriented and contoured seat modules and vinyl end enclosures.
Our installation team was able to install each set of bleachers well ahead of schedule, leaving the students and faculty of White Pines C & VI, Central Algoma Secondary School (CASS) and Michipicoten High School with a space saving and innovative indoor bleacher seating solution.
Below are the before and after shots from each school:
