Standard or Enhanced Viewing Options.
We’ll either manufacture our own covered seating or arrange for one of our carefully selected contracting partners to assist.
Your requirements will depend on your budget, preferences and planning approval. Generally approval is required for any fixed building over 2 metres in height.
Your budget will also determine the back, roof and frontage of your covered seating, as well as features such as concrete stepped bases.
We always recommend that stands face out to the East, where possible. This is to escape the worst of the sun and prevailing adverse weather in the UK.
We’ll also provide spaces for Disabled spectators and Press seating, as required.
All of the stands we provide access to are fully compliant with the Safety at Sports Grounds “Green Guide”
It provides guidance on a number of areas including:
- Calculating the safe capacity of a sports grounds
- Management responsibility and planning for safety
- Circulation, including ingress, egress, vertical, concourses and vomitories
- Barriers and separating elements
- Seating accommodation
- Standing accommodation
- Demountable structures
- Fire safety
- Communications and control
- Mechanical and electrical installations
- Medical and first aid provision
- Media provision
We’ll work with you in the space available to ensure your stands are suitable for the level at which you participate and are possibly looking to move towards.
We put in a 330-seated stand at Midlands-based Chasetown FC, which was on our enhanced 250mm high steps and included the great finishing touch of a steel fascia.
Another recent build was at National League North Side and a 250-seat stand on 250mm high steps but on 7 rows.
The most recent addition to our product range is a 250 seated stand that we put in at Kettering Town who play in the National League North.
We are now working with a club that will provide the same 250 seats but with a 2 storey building to the rear which will incorporate glass fronted hospitality boxes with changing rooms underneath.
We continue to offer our popular “lift & drop” alternatives which are 3 metres deep and are lifted off the side of a hi-ab vehicle. Our covered standing on 4 rows is effectively the seated stand but without the seats, which makes for easy conversion between the 2.
We also worked with Everton Ladies to facilitate their return to Liverpool at Walton Park. We converted covered standing for 500 into covered seating for 250 and placed 2 x 125 seat bolt on structures at either end to create a single structure 50 metres long to accommodate 500 seated fans.
Effectively, whatever you want us to do, we can do.
