Seating scenario: what costs less? 03 Dec 2006 23:23 #29203

If you were to take an old department store and put up cinderblock walls to create auditoriums, would it be cheaper to chip away the floor and put in sloped seating, or cheaper to build risers for stadium?

Offhand, I'd think you could do a stadium refit for a lot less money than it would cost to take out a concrete floor and excavate a slope.

You'd need a pretty tall department store though!

If you have the head room: building the stadium or risers or whatever you do is easier than excavating. The reason others in this situation have dug is that between the need for sight lines and the booth there was not enough height. If you do not have the room: dig you must and with an excavator/bulldozer/adequate machinery it is no big deal. As long as you go the do-re-me.

And besides... Who says that you have to do 18" risers?
