Geofoam a Perfect Fit for Stadium Seating Project
Benchmark Foam delivers on time to keep installation on schedule
When a local movie theater announced plans to build a new, state-of-the-art facility, Benchmark Foam was eager to be part of the project. When the plans called for four theaters to have stadium seating, Benchmark knew its expanded polystyrene (EPS) geofoam would be the perfect form work for the tiered seating construction.
Geofoam offers light weight, yet high compressive resistance, which makes it ideal to form the stair step style of construction necessary for stadium seating projects. The crews were able to quickly stack the geofoam blocks, greatly reducing installation costs while keeping schedules in line.
When a change order occurred during construction on a wall design, the installer quickly looked to Benchmark for a last-minute order to adjust to the unexpected size. Always willing to accommodate change orders, Benchmark was able to produce new pieces to fit the revised plans while still offering its On-Time Guarantee. The pieces were delivered the following day, ensuring the crews could continue installation.
EPS geofoam is commonly used as a lightweight fill material, making it ideal for stadium seating projects where traditional fill materials and costly concrete just don’t fit the bill. Next time plans call for tiered level construction, call the Benchmark Foam team at 800-658-3444 or 605-886-8084 to find out how geofoam can be a time-saving and affordable option for your project.
