    Named after the eighth prime minister of Canada, one of our more recent projects led us into Canada’s Capital Region at Sir Robert Borden High School.

    Opened in 1969 and neighboured by the head office of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, the school currently serves upwards of 825 students at their west-end Ottawa campus.

    As part of a large project, our team was commissioned by the school board to aid in upgrading the existing fixed seating located inside the school’s auditorium. Serving as a meeting place for assemblies and dramatic presentations over the years, key stakeholders from the school board deemed the existing seating as outdated and were looking for a new solution that would serve the school and its students for years to come.

    Choosing Fixed Seating for Churches and Places of Worship

    Religious facilities have come a long way from the churches and places of worship some of us may have been raised in. While there are still many traditional facilities that continue to utilize pews and other wooden seating solutions, today’s modern religious facilities, are turning to something different. Constructing these facilities often costs upwards of millions of dollars and as such, their patrons have higher expectations as to the amenities found inside.

    What might come as a surprise to some, today’s religious facilities often share the very same type of seating characteristically found in performing arts facilities and movie theatres.

    Opting for a more comfortable fit for their congregations, the styling of the seating found inside modern facilities is highly customizable, allowing for operators to pick and choose colours, configurations, accessories and completely custom designs.

    As you prepare to plan seating for your new or existing location, here are a few key factors every planner should take into account before placing an order on new fixed seating.
