Project: Brunswick Middle School
Owner: Brunswick City Schools
Architect: TDA Architecture
CMR: Hammond Construction
Scope: Provide Telescopic Bleachers, Athletic Equipment and Auditorium Seating
Brunswick City Schools completed their Middle School “Blue Devils” Complex. “Dedicated to excellence”, Hammond Construction and TDA Architecture partnered to lead this project from start to finish. Along the way, Farnham Equipment Company (FEC) won contracts to provide Athletic Equipment and Telescopic Seating for the Gymnasiums and Fixed Auditorium Seating for the new Auditorium.
FEC installed new Maxam telescopic bleachers from Hussey Seating Company on both sides of the main gymnasium. The design adequately seated the entire student body when necessary. However, when required for small classes in the gym, Hussey’s “flex row” design allows just the first row to be opened for flexibility. Retractable basketball backstops by Performance Sports Systems were provided as well as a roll-up gym divider curtain separating the main gym into two cross courts allowing multiple activities at once. Directly connected with the main gymnasium is a smaller, auxiliary gym. This gym featured telescopic bleachers and athletic equipment by Farnham.
Exiting directly from the main gymnasium will bring you to the new auditorium. FEC provided Hussey Seating Company’s Quattro Classic Seating for this area. The auditorium holds nearly 700 spectators and features seat backs with a horizontal pleat design.
This project allowed Farnham to provide multiple scopes of work to the K-12 market. With over 50 years of experience, Farnham has both the product knowledge and the personnel to deliver quality solutions for upcoming Ohio projects.
