A Siouxland school is getting new bleachers

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

A Siouxland high school is on day three of a construction job that could last 10 days.

North High began construction on a new set of bleachers on Wednesday.

Principle Ryan Dumkrieger says the main reason for the project was safety.

The new bleachers have a steel structure with a plywood deck and they will be topped off by blue plastic seats.

Installation specialists say the key to getting the job done efficiently is laying out the supplies in order after unloading them.

"It's not the concept that you'd think of. We were talking to the guys before and they said 'we have over a million parts' and we're like 'well where are the blueprints for that' and he's like 'it's all right up here,' and these guys are so efficient, and they come in and they work, and it's just constant," said Principal Ryan Dumkrieger of North High School.

North High will lose some seating with the installation of the new bleachers.

The old bleachers seated 2,500 and the new ones will seat 2,200.

Dumkreiger says this is not a concern, and he looks forward to the students returning in August to celebrate the new stands.
