Pre-installation planning is critical to avoid major issues, which could cause disruption or delays to your project. Therefore, prior to the commencing the job, Optimal Venue Solutions would suggest we work closely with your builder, architect, project manager, onsite building manager, trades and related contractors for any sized sporting stadium seating installation.
It is essential for Optimal Venue Solutions to carry out a thorough site survey and assessment and be supplied the latest plans and detailed considerations, to identify which aspects, will and will not affect the smooth installation for your sporting venue or complex.
Every characteristic of the site is considered to verify the challenges associated with the project itself, seat positioning, seat numbering, colours, styles and size to optimise the time taken for delivery and installation. This is very important for the preparation and bump-in of seating for both union and non union sites.
It is particularly important to understand the stage of a new construction site or complex and their timeline expectations as well as the actual point of progression, to avoid unwanted under or over utilisation of manpower, equipment hire and time. In order to best manage this conundrum, our Project Manger will coordinate and liaise with your builder, site manager and other trades to identify:
Additionally OHS needs to be considered for the project site to eliminate relevant issues and risks to onsite workers and staff from start to finish, particularly when goods are carried in and out of site. This can be by hand, trolley, forklift or crane and all of these options need to be managed carefully.
All the above considerations also affect the time taken to potentially install seating or to completely fit out a suite or box. If not carefully considered the additional time not accounted for, will affect the cost economy for everyone’s bottom line.

Our 30 years of extensive experience with stadium seating installation which includes, Bukit Jalil Stadium, Centennial Olympic Stadium, Centre Court Wimbledon, Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), numerous private and government schools and many other global sporting venues. When the builder’s project manager or onsite facility manager work closely with us, we are able to readily discuss issues on how to quickly install the seats, create access availability and actual access points and which on site machinery, crane is available to assist etc.
Our installers will then manage the seating distribution layout/arrangement and dimensions for the best fit and for electrical access if needed. The various stages of development can affect the availability of access points and installation and dependant of the size of the job will affect the required space to store the seats for installation. For instance some jobs will require enough available space for several 40’ containers whilst others may only be a small truck load.
It is important that clear lines of communication are in play and look to regularly communicate with those on site to update them with the latest progress report.
Our project manager will coordinate and liaise with the trades and onsite facilities management, to gain updates on the various stages of the building site, particularly with regards to access for rubbish removal and seating logistics.
