NUSSLI builds the grandstand for the AVP Championships in Santa Barbara (USA)

On September 7, 24 men and women competed in Santa Barbara in the AVP Beach Volleyball Championships. In the end Jake Gibb/Sean Rosenthal won the men's event. Jen Kessy/April Ross were the winners in the women's.

NUSSLI supported the AVP organisation as early as the planning phase with ideas and visualisations for the implementation of the grandstand. The NUSSLI team constructed a u-shaped grandstand with 1,500 seats and a VIP area in two days. To allow seats to also be put in the corners, the NUSSLI NT system was employed for the first time in America. With this grandstand system NUSSLI set new standards in American event construction.

The VIP area comprised 300 square meters of skysuits and a 350 square meter large spectator platform. The system was disabled-friendly and accessible via built-in tunnels.

24 hours after the final there wasn't a trace of the grandstand left.
