Staging Concepts had the pleasure of being part of an ongoing renovation that included wheelchair accessibility at the outdoor ballpark Zephyr Field, home of the minor league baseball team, the New Orleans Zephyrs. Our scope was to provide a weatherproof American with Disabilities Act (ADA) wheelchair accessible platform infill for 19 of the lower bowl sections in the stadium. This allowed the facility to remove their old ADA platforms on the concourse level. In turn, this opened up the concourse and improved site lines for a much improved fan experience.
Each section included custom designed all aluminum weatherproof SC97 platforms, International Building Code (IBC) compliant aluminum guardrail, and aluminum closure panels. To further enhance the fan experience, Staging Concepts also provided an aluminum drink rail at the back of each ADA platform infill, giving fans a place to stretch and hold their snacks and beverages without missing a single pitch.
ADA platform infill systems are not complete without companion seating. By partnering with Clarin Seating, Staging Concepts was also able to provide companion chairs in each section for a number of different seating configurations based on wheelchair space requirements.
If you’re looking to increasing your wheelchair accessible seating capacity, improve site lines and fan experience, give us a call at 763.533.2094 and let Staging Concepts help you create a custom, ADA compliant seating infill system for your next project.
