Aluminium Grandstands - Dapto High School
Client name: Dapto High School
Project name: Dapto High Grandstand Seating
Project location: Dapto, New South Wales
Dapto is a suburb of Wollongong in the Illawarra region of New South Wales. Dapto High School is a large school with extensive grounds. With student and general spectator seating at a premium, there was a strong requirement to increase this capacity.
Existing grandstand seating was limited and did not cater for increasing spectator demand. The new seating needed to meet this demand while offering all spectators an unobscured view of events. Being positioned outside, the seating solution also needed to be able to manage the elements without rusting, losing any structural integrity (such as timber stands can), be low maintenance and continue to look good year-round.
Working with BAB Aluminium, GS 1 6m 4-tier aluminium grandstands were recommended. With individual footrests for each tier, the seating solution offered the capacity needed plus comfort for the spectators. As a grandstand configuration, it also met the requirements for unobscured spectator viewing.
Delivered fully erected, the stands were placed in their desired location and bolted to concrete pads for stability. The end result easily met the school’s expectations and the 20-year structural warranty ensures spectators will have safe and secure seating for many years to come.
