Arena Seating transforms Scotstoun Stadium

Arena Seating has installed 11,000 temporary demountable seats to expand the capacity of Glasgow’s Scotstoun Stadium ahead of the eighth round of the HSBC Sevens World Series.

The Scotstoun Stadium is home to the Glasgow Warriors rugby Union team, who have trained there since 2009. The facility has undergone £17.5m of renovations in recent years.

The seating specialist designed and installed three different grandstands within three weeks, transforming the athletics venue into a world-class 15,000 capacity sports stadium fit to host the Scottish leg of the tournament, where sixteen international rugby 7s teams battle it out for the precious HSBC World Series points. Two of the temporary grandstands were located either side of the new main stand on a resurfaced outdoor 400mtrack and the third one extended the back stand on the straight.

“It is a sustainable business model to create permanent stadium facilities that can be extended when hosting one-off or occasional events such as the Rugby Sevens, which draw much larger audiences,” comments project director Bradley Merchant. “This allows for peaks in market demand and optimises revenue streams for the organisers and venue.

“Designing and installing these demountable grandstands meant creating two stand alone grandstands that sat over the running track, so we were particularly careful to calculate the weight loading of each of the grandstands to protect the running track underneath. The third grandstand integrated into the permanent stand on the back straight to bring rugby fans closer to the action.”

Arena Seating’s in-house CAD design engineers supplied full calculations to verify the structural integrity of the temporary infrastructure, with an experienced team of 20 seating professionals installing the equipment in time for the opening game of the tournament. The temporary seating was also supplied in the mixture of green and blue to match seats in the permanent main stand.
