Telescopic Bleacher Upgrades for MacKenzie High School

    Posted by Ryan Wilby

    For one of our recent projects, we were back up in the beautiful Ottawa Valley to once again assist the Renfrew County District School Board with an outdated problem at MacKenzie High School.

    As with all things and the natural passage of time, seating structures can degrade and wear out, requiring repair or replacement. Depending on the age of the school, many of these bleacher structures were installed decades ago and have since become inoperable or just plain unsafe to operate.

    The Branding Opportunity Your Gymnasium Presents

    Posted by Ryan Wilby

    Mar 29, 2023 4:00:00 AM


    Depending on who you ask, some may tell you that the gymnasium inside an academic institution is the heart of the building. As it is often located centrally inside a building, it naturally and easily exists as the location where gatherings take place.

    In addition to assemblies and other events, gymnasiums are the hub for indoor sports, attracting spectators not only from within the school but those from outside as well, such as friends and family.

    As athletic programming continues to ramp up across Canada and the United States, these institutions are doing everything they can to remain relevant with regards to the programs they offer, as well as with the equipment located inside their gymnasiums.

    As with any high traffic area, the opportunity to more actively brand your organization or team is highly beneficial in the gymnasium of a highly spirited school.  With many of the walls already adorned with banners and ribbons from years gone by, today’s institutions are starting from the ground up when it comes to branding their beloved schools.

    Located roughly 16 miles southeast of the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas is Henderson, Nevada, home to residents that work in and around Las Vegas who enjoy the lifestyle southern Nevada affords them. With beautiful Lake Mead to the east and nearly 40 miles of trails through the Las Vegas Valley, Henderson is a wonderful place to make a home and to live an active outdoor lifestyle.

    It was here that we  were recently contracted to take on a project, a first for us in that area of the country. During the height of the pandemic, we were brought in by a design group out of the state of Florida who was in search of partners for a project in the region. Set at the Pinecrest Academy’s Cadence campus, the Florida design group had been involved in a number of projects for the school and was looking for an experienced partner for a big project.

    Posted by Ryan Wilby

    Mar 13, 2023 5:02:09 AM


    When it comes to custom digital graphics, our proprietary GameDay GraFX solution has been making waves in the athletic space since launching it a few short years ago. Having done a number of custom graphic projects on bleacher seats in the past, we made it our mission to perfect the process and offer the marketplace a digital graphic that would look brilliant and wouldn’t scuff or wear off over time.

    As the market got a hold of it, so did a number of our partners, including architects across North America. A recent project included the request for our innovative digital graphic technique, providing an excellent example of how an ancillary product can really take an organization’s design to the next level.

    Operating 79 elementary schools and 20 secondary schools, the District School Board of Niagara reached out to our team to explore options for upgrading the gymnasium at one of their schools. With a focus on student success, the board takes both academics and athletics very seriously and as such, is frequently looking for new and innovative ways to improve their school’s offerings.

    Jean Sauvé French Immersion Public School was in the process of upgrading some components of their gymnasium and was in the market for a new seating option. Looking for a retractable bleacher system that could easily be rolled out for sporting events or retracted when not in use was the most logical option.

    Heading back to the region  of the 1,000 Islands, about 90km (56mi) from our company headquarters, is a small riverfront city our crews always look forward to working in. Close enough for a day trip, but seemingly far enough away from home to enjoy the charm of it all once you arrive.

    Working again with the City of Brockville, our team was brought in to assess the seating situation in one of the local parks. Brackenreid Baseball Park is often denoted as one of the best little league fields in southern Ontario, and with good reason.
