Seating Solutions, the best-in-class sports and entertainment customized seating company providing innovative temporary and permanent structures to organizations, colleges, professional sports and other venues, has been retained by Moss Construction to create a best-in-class, custom free-standing modular structure elevating the overall fan experience at the Miami Open tennis tournament.

This “Modular Spectator Super Structure” referred to as the MS3 turned the stadium into an intimate, premium fan experience which includes a 13,800-seat center court that includes general admission, VIP seats, press boxes, radio and luxury suites connected via the concourse. The patent pending MS3 structure that does not require concrete or permanent anchors comes with electrical and lighting and can be installed in four weeks, uninstalled in ten days, and stored easily for future use. Additionally, Seating Solutions erected all the temporary seating for the peripheral courts and a permanent 6,000 seat grandstand, solidifying the company as the leading provider of turnkey solutions.

ROSSETTI, a Detroit firm, recommended Seating Solutions to fulfill the vision of Stephen M. Ross, owner of the Miami Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium, and IMG World to build the premium superstructure for the Miami Open. “When ROSSETTI was hired to develop the new Miami Open tennis campus within the Hard Rock stadium and site, we turned to Seating Solutions for the multiple varieties of seating configurations. We wanted to work with a wildly creative group for innovative ideas as this is a ‘never been done before’ type of project. Seating Solutions and their MS3 created opportunities to raise the fan experience and present more value than a permanent tennis facility. The Miami Open collaboration between ROSSETTI and Seating Solutions has been a resounding success and we look forward to replicating this formula for both temporary and permanent projects in the future with our eye on changing how our clients plan and invest in their events and venues,” said Matt Rossetti, Chief Architect of Serious Fun for ROSSETTI.

“I am grateful for this opportunity provided by Stephen Ross and ROSSETTI to create a major innovation for stadium design and construction” said Scott Suprina, Chair-man of Seating Solutions and inventor of the MS3. “Whether it is a short-term event or a semi-permanent stadium, Seating Solutions MS3 provides the building blocks for future cost effective stadium and entertainment venue construction. MS3 installs at a fraction of the cost and reduces construction time by nearly 75 percent.”

Hosting over 30% more spectators than in prior years at this new location, the Miami Open fans will attend a game-changing event starting on March 18, 2019. “Seating Solutions is on the cutting edge with this new modular, affordable seating structure in an unparalleled way. Scott’s innovative and professional style has made this into a remarkable venue, one that will rival any seating structure in the sports world, both professional and collegiate” said Stephen Ross.
