Summary: Like most school districts, Malverne approached their renovation project with cost savings in mind. The school currently had a Grandstand on the far end of the field, however it was beginning to show it’s age and the district needed more room to accommodate spectator capacity. Since the existing Grandstand was structurally sound, the district decided to refurbish the Grandstand, which is a fraction of the cost of a new Grandstand. The Grandstand’s understructure was cleaned and repainted, to give the existing steel a fresh look. The top part of the bleacher was worn, so all of the existing seating and decking of the original grandstand was replaced. On the “home” side of their field the district purchased a new 15 Row Grandstand with Press Box. By refurbishing the existing bleacher, the school saved itself tens of thousands of dollars, and now has two attractive and functional Grandstands for their outdoor athletic field.

In the boys and girls locker room the district also approached their renovation with cost saving in mind. Less than 10 years ago one of the school’s graduating class donated lockers to surround the perimeter of both locker rooms. These lockers were still in excellent condition; however the center rows of lockers were in a dilapidated state. Nickerson provided 400 all new athletic lockers to the center locker rooms, and left the perimeter lockers in place. Nickerson worked with the factory to create a color for the lockers which matched the existing perfectly, so the locker rooms had a cohesive aesthetic. By utilizing the existing lockers, the district yet again saved itself tens of thousands of dollar.
