USTA selects SPS Technology for new grandstand

SPS North America, in partnership with the Walters Group, reports a new order for SPS Terraces from HUNT Construction Group in a supply‐install contract for the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing, NY.

This is SPS NA’s second stadia project for USTA National Tennis Center with the 8,000-seat venue to be constructed near the existing Court 17 facility built with SPS in 2012.

Designed by Rossetti and engineered by WSP, the Grandstand 3 stadium is scheduled for completion in July 2016 – a very ambitious build program with SPS Terraces to be erected by the end of 2015.

Stadium District
This multi-stadium complex is host to the US Open – the largest tennis tournament in the world. The 46-acre site caters to famous players, maximum crowds and hundreds of sponsors over the two-week span. The site also accommodates year-round activities, such as retail, training and recreation options. More recently, the USTA retained Rossetti to create a new 20-year Vision Plan that addresses emerging technology, hospitality, sponsorship activation and fan experience optimisation.

 

Daniel Zausner, Managing Director, United States Tennis Association, commented:

ROSSETTI’s design for the complex is one that has withstood the test of time. Besides being an award-winning international design firm, ROSSETTI is committed to understanding the needs of their clients.

Both SPS Terraces and ROSSETTI will be showcasing their latest projects and developments at our ‘live’ event, Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2015, which is being held at the Singapore Sports Hub this September, 28-30.
