New York University - Bespoke Red Gum Veneer

Hussey Seatway were delighted to recently complete a very bespoke project at New York University, New York, USA.  The university chose a #seatwayTP #retractableseating unit with a Gallery 3 chair.  The chair was upholstered but the base of the seat, the back rest and the fascias were all a custom Red Gum veneer.


With the incredible feature of the wood it looks amazing both open and closed.


Crystal Palace National Sport Centre - 1760 seat refurbishment

Throw Back Thursday #tbt to our part in the £17 million redevelopment of the Crystal Place National Sport Centre, London.  Hussey Seatway were selected to refurbish their exisiting retractable seating.   The existing retractable systems were installed during the 1980’s, whilst the understructure was in good condition all of the seating was showing signs of wear and tear. Over a 3 month period all 1,760 seat places were stripped and replaced with brand new courtside benches and metro chairs.


Indoor and Outdoor Installation completed today at RAF Croughton

Hot off of the press are images of an installation that we have completed today at RAF Croughton, North Hants.  The inside Courtside Benches, in dark blue, look great.

The outdoor benches use the Maxam 24 platform, the metal has been galvanised and the decks have been treated for outdoor use.  The Courtside Bench seat is the same colour as inside.

Throw Back Thursday - The Place, London

We had to share with you with a #tbt to this fantastic article in the Sightline Magazine (Winter 2014) by ABTT which shows a stunning job that we did at THE PLACE in London.  It is the UK's premier centre for dance development and needed an overhaul.  Along with theatre consultants THEATREPLAN and funding from the ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND, Hussey Seatway provided them with a solution that provided better access to the rear seats, wider more comfortable seating, deeper rows and better legroom.  The whole space is transformed within half an hour with mechanised retractable seating.

New term, new location for The Heath School, Runcorn

Students begin Term 3 at @TheHeathSchool in their brand new building, complete with Maxam Plus platforms (power operated and retractable) with Centura seats.

It looks fantastic, we wish the new location in Runcorn all the best.  The staff have two days on Monday 8th and Tuesday 9th January to get used to the new space and then on Wednesday 10th January the school is open to pupils.


The new design will see state-of-the-art classrooms all with climate control, a new sports and community centre, activity hall, dance and drama studios and a café.  New tennis courts, multi use games areas, an amphitheatre and outdoor dining area will also be created.

It looks like an incredible place to go to school.
