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.
PREFOAM STADIUM RISER SYSTEM
Stadium Seating Enterprises (SSE) provides a prefabricated kit of parts for stadium seating platform construction nationwide. It was the natural choice for the auditorium stadium seating here and the A/E team were able to save both time, and money on this project. Because the SSEPREFoam Riser System can be installed in less than half the time as light gauge metal framing, theater owners, architects, and contractors know they can save construction time and money using the system. This allows them to open earlier, increasing their revenue, and lowering costs for construction labor.
General Contractor A.R. Mays, an experienced Cinema General contractor, installed the PREFoam Stadium Seating Riser System at Eclipse with tremendous success. Trucks were phased per the contractor’s required schedule and the system was delivered “just in time”.
It is no secret anymore why hundreds of theaters across the world are being constructed using the SSE PREFoam Stadium Riser System each year. They are saving both time and money in luxury cinema construction.
Many theater owners across the U.S. want to construct new or retrofitted auditoriums, with over 15 years of experience, we can help you get started. Along with experience in stadium seating risers, we also have an expansive network of Architects and General Contractors that can assist you in your next project.
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.
SSE is a design and fabrication partner on construction projects.
