Many church groups will approach SSE with an idea, or a vision, and we are happy to have been able to make that idea or vision a reality, where all in attendants are able to take in the full experience of their church. FBCO was a new construction project and seats approximately 4,300 people in a full capacity setting. It would be a great privelidge to work with your team in your next project. Contact us to […]
SSE and Geofoam International, Overseas 2017 was a record year for Stadium Seating Enterprises and Geofoam International. We’ve continued international expansion to multiple sites worldwide, including Mexico, Canada, the U.K., and most recently, Panama. International Expansion is one of our biggest goals for 2018. The SSE PREFoam riser system is thriving throughout the United Kingdom and our continued relationship with EPS manufacturers overseas has given us an opportunity to reach jobsites in countries that we had no ability to service before. This is just one of the main competitive advantages that working with Stadium Seating Enterprises and our PREFoam Stadium Riser system can provide to clientele overseas. The Light Cinemas in Stockport, England is just one example of how SSE’s footprints extend beyond the U.S. Our design team created a system custom kit of parts for the stadium […]

It is important to SSE that we are always improving and getting better so we always ask for feedback from our clients. Below are comments we received that exemplify what it is like to work with SSE and GI. Stadium Seating Team, I am happy to say we have another successful project under our belt. I truly appreciate all of your help and patience on this one. This project started off a little “bumpy” due to circumstances out of our control, but I am glad to say we pulled it all together and were able to make it happen. This was a new accomplishment for us. These theaters were a little smaller than typical, but we were able to start […]
Inside the Mothership In Q3 of 2017, one of the most famous tech companies in the world completed construction of their NEW headquarters in Northern California. The construction elements, processes used, and materials procured were considered to be some of the most forward-thinking ideas in construction of a corporate office building EVER. Things like a green living roof, solar panels, and planting of over 9,000 trees within the surrounding lands is revolutionary thinking for a corporate office building. That company, is Apple. One thing that MAY surprise you, is the use of Expanded Polystyrene foam throughout the construction process from the wall insulation, to providing a base over the roof structure for the living garden to sit on. Hundreds of truckloads of EPS foam were used throughout the project and were able to provide a material that is 100% recyclable, and typically […]
Did You Know? Did you know that EPS (foam) is used in applications outside of stadium seating like: roofing, insulation, lightweight fill material, and MORE? In Q3 2017, we had the opportunity to participate on several of these types of projects. One of which will be the addition of a new skateboard park in AZ where the features of the park will actually be based around an EPS foam structure. Blocks are designed by SSE and GI, sent for manufacturing based on location of the jobsite, and shipped to the installing contractors for assembly and anchoring before forming and pouring concrete to encapsulate the material. EPS saves the contractors time, effort and money.

Recently Awarded Projects Q2 2017 has been a busy time for Stadium Seating Enterprises. With the award of 55 NEW projects, SSE has grown our presence and gained market share throughout the country and abroad. One particular featured project, is the Alamo Draft House in Brooklyn, NY. As Alamo Drafthouse’ s first entry into New York City, SSE is very proud to have had the opportunity to provide our PREFoam Riser System for the stadium seating construction. A project that was originally designed using traditional light gauge metal framing as the basis for the stadium seating construction, SSE was brought in by a general contractor with past experience in both light gauge framing AND Foam stadium seating construction. As many GC’s do, this contractor preferred to work with the SSE PREFoam Riser System vs light gauge framing, and was able […]
Using the PREFoam System for Luxury Cinema Construction In every corner of the globe, movie-goers have seen a significant increase in luxury cinemas construction. Auditoriums filled with large reclining chairs and dining options have provided the masses with an all-inclusive night out, complete with dinner and a movie. DEMAND FOR LUXURY The increased demand for these high-end cinemas has also had a positive impact for movie theater owners, as construction of these venues provides an increase in movie ticket sales and added revenue from dining and alcohol purchases. The new Eclipse Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada, designed by KME Architects, is a beautiful luxury cinema. Boasting 8 screens with both dining and comfortable seating options, this venue is a treasure for cinema patrons in the Downtown Las Vegas area.

Stadium Seating Enterprises, Inc. (SSE) is the world’s leading provider of prefabricated stadium seating systems for the Cinema, Worship, Performing Arts and Education/Training market segments. SSE’s client base represents the largest Cinema operators in the world, tiered seating for some of the largest Churches in the US and Educational/Training facilities for many universities, colleges, secondary schools and select Corporate clients from coast to coast. We offer systems specifically designed for new construction and ones that are specific to renovation/retrofit projects. Our standard PREFOAM™ System and our PREFOAM DryFit™ Systems have been fully engineered to meet the requirements of virtually any project requiring tiered stadium seating.
SSE works directly with end users, architects, engineers and contractors to design and manufacture a prefabricated “kit of parts” for stadium seating. SSE operates with regional manufacturing partners in six geographic zones within North America to facilitate responsive and competitively prices products and services. The PREFOAM System consists of EPS Geofoam blocks for structural support and a steel forming system that allows for a fast and easy assembly and a strong forming system for concrete topping material. The PRERFOAM DryFit System also utilized EPS Geofoam blocks for the structural support, but is based on a proprietary design for a plywood or cement board facing materials. The DryFit system is ideal for luxury cinema retrofits due to its light weight and ease of assembly without having to introduce a wet trade like concrete into the auditorium. Working directly with the design and construction teams, we design, fabricate and deliver the selected system to the jobsite for installation by others in a timely and efficient manner.
SSE has a proven track record of success with more than 300 individual clients in 46 states, Canada, Latin America and the UK. Our team has put more than 81.75 Million Cubic Feet of EPS Geofoam in place since 2002 in more than 1850 completed auditoriums. The quality of our services and products is exemplified by the number of repeat clients we have over the years. We believe the key elements that set us apart from any of the competition are: Our high quality, innovative and reliable PREFOAM products, our willingness and ability to collaborate with the design and construction team members to insure customers are getting the best value for the money, and the outstanding professional relationships we have developed over the past thirteen years with our manufacturing and supplier partners. But more than anything, it is the absolute commitment to the best customer service in the industry that puts SSE “heads and shoulders” above the competition.
