Our focus at SSE is twofold: FIRST: To provide the most innovative and cost effective pre-engineered solution to stadium seating in the world and SECOND: To provide the highest level of responsive, informative and personal hands-on customer service available in the industry today. Whether you are working with our Sales Team, Project Management Team or the Company Ownership, we strive to make your experience pleasant and fulfilling and to be the very best at what we do, without exception.
Our company had the pleasure of doing business with Stadium Seating Enterprises during the design/construction of our new 8 screen cinema located in Winchester, Virginia and we would highly recommend you as our stadium seating supplier. SSE’s attention to detail and broad knowledge of their products were remarkable from the difficult design stage right through to installation. We were very impressed with the exceptional service we received from you and your team during this project. It will be our pleasure to work with you again on our future projects. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the extreme professionalism and quality both you and your company have exhibited over the years. As a general contractor building many various size projects with specialty items over the past 10 years, I have the experience to know when we are working with a first class operation. Without a doubt, SSE exceeds expectations on all levels. The attention to detail and overall process of SSE’s PREFOAM Stadium Seating Riser System is the key to your company’s success. The cost, time and productivity of the PREFOAM Stadium Seating Riser System has proven superior over every alternative time and time again. We want you to know what a please it was to work with you and your staff on the Alamo Drafthouse project. As you know, we were somewhat reluctant at first simply because we had not worked with the PREFOAM Stadium Seating Riser System on any of our previous projects. I can assure you that after our experience with your product and your team, we will use this system exclusively in the future. Our money was well spent as we saved countless man-hours of forming, stripping and facing concrete. Your system along with the shop drawings you provided helped make this portion of our scope go smoothly and quickly and the personal service you provided from the bid process all the way through to the setting of the last piece of foam was exceptional.

We would like to thank you and your staff for providing the stadium risers for our new 1,000 seat auditorium at Cape Cod Church. We couldn't be happier. As you know, we self-performed on this project and completed the installation with untrained volunteers in about 10 days. We found the installation to be as advertised - a reasonably straightforward and logical "building block" approach. Your engineering plans were accurate, and the installation drawings and instructions were easy to understand. We greatly appreciated your exceptional over-the-phone support. You always had the answers and a clear commitment to 100% customer satisfaction. Now that the seats have been installed, and the building has been in use for a few months, we can say that there have been no post-installation surprises. On building tours, we typically mention that the risers are made of foam with poured concrete, and people seem to be surprised, and impressed. Thank you again for your exceptional product and support.

Search Construction Services had the opportunity to work with SSE on three occasions, once for an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema project, once for the ten screen City Base Cinema 10 and finally for an expansion to the City Base project. All three projects were located in San Antonio, TX. On each project, SSE exhibited a comprehensive understanding of the design and construction of stadium seating systems and provided exceptional service to our design and construction team. They were not only competitively priced, but more importantly, extremely responsive team members to any questions or suggestions relating to the stadium seating both before the start of construction and during the installation of their PREFOAM Stadium Seating Riser System. They made a valuable contribution to our success and the overall success of the projects. I would recommend SSE as the “best in the business” in terms of stadium seating system design.

Over the past several years as a project manager for Tony Bagliore Concrete, I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work closely with SSE in the installation of their PREFOAM Stadium Seating Riser System and their PREFOAM EPS Geofoam blocks on a number of projects. Our service as a commercial concrete contractor is “where the rubber meets the road” during the installation of stadium seating systems and, based on our experience, I can, with the utmost confidence, recommend SSE based on their responsiveness, work ethic, knowledge, communication skills and willingness to work TOGETHER with our team of construction professionals to get the job done and get it done correctly. Not only is SSE price competitive but their added value because of their direct and continued is involvement during the design and construction process priceless. Their team is always available for questions and their input is greatly appreciated. I look forward to working with them on many other projects in the future.

I just wanted to drop you a note of appreciation for your excellent performance on this, our second project with SSE. Both the Frank Theatre and Penn Cinema IMAX projects went together just like they were designed. Having never before worked with your product, I had some reservations as we started the Frank Theatre project, but those reservations quickly went away and the Penn Cinema project went smoothly as well. I would certainly recommend both your firm and your system to anyone. I feel they would get as great a project as Warfel enjoyed.

The benefits Team Construction received from the SSE PREFOAM Stadium Seating Riser System during the construction of the Scappoose Cinema 7 Project were substantial. SSE’s system promoted cost savings, introduced an innovative design solution and facilitated timely submittals and expediting. But one of the most important benefits was the patience and availability of SSE’s leadership throughout the design and construction process. The Cinema Owner was extremely impressed with the final product and the value it provided to the project. Many thanks to SSE.

I have to admit that our construction team had reservations about using EPS Geofoam for the stadium structure; as our experience had always been with traditional metal stud construction. However, as promised, the SSE System was fast, easy to install and a straight forward approach to building the stadiums. As I remember, after the SSE System installation in the first auditorium, our superintendent continually shortened the installation schedule for the remainder of the stadium seating auditoriums. With more than 30 years in the field, our superintendent finished the job a true believer in the virtues of the SSE PREFOAM Stadium Seating System. He appreciated your hands-on involvement in the installation of the system which he found to be a great benefit to the success of the project.

Your initial budgeting and the final cost for the stadium seating system was right on the money. You gave us a price for your scope of work and did not stray from that quote with endless extras and hidden costs. Your willingness and ability to work closely with our architect/general contractor team was refreshing and very productive in the delivery of the project. I am sure that because of your "hands-on" personal involvement in the project, we maximized our cost and time savings, and ended up with a project that met all of our expectations. The SSE PREFOAM EPS Geofoam System is truly everything you said it was; easy to install, cost effective and a time saving approach to the construction of stadium seating. We have more projects on the horizon including a retrofit of an existing multiplex. We will definitely look forward to working with you again.

I am still amazed at how beautiful the Cinema City 13 and the Whittier Village Cinemas turned out after the stadium seating retrofit. Our customers are very excited about the new look of the theatres. Many of them, not knowing it was a conversion, think the building was originally built as stadium seating. The job was so well coordinated that we were able to operate our other screens in the complex while construction was progressing in neighboring auditoriums. The job was finished on the date promised which made me very happy.
President of Starlight Cinemas
First off, I want to let you know how much of a pleasure it has been working with SSE this past year. It was a great decision to have you on the team. I am looking forward to many more projects in the future.
