    Phase One of construction has begun and will be completed in time for the home-opener on October 16th against UConn on Homecoming weekend. This phase of the construction will include new blue chair back seats on the entire home side of the arena, new bleacher seating behind the goal at the parking lot side of the arena, a direct entrance from the Blue Line Club to the seating area, a new press box on the home side of the arena, movement of the penalty box and scorekeepers box to the home bench side, movement of the graphics portion of the scoreboard to the opposite side, removal of the “tin foil” that was previously on the ceiling, code work which includes sprinklers, wall reinforcements and ADA compliance, and a paved walkway next to the arena from the parking lot that will replace the man-made dirt walkway.

    The next phase of the renovations will be completed at the latest in December following the Northeastern game on December 4th and prior to the January 8th game at home against Maine. These renovations include new blue chair back seating on the entire visitor’s side, a walkway underneath the visitor’s side for the visiting team with direct access to the bench, new lighting and an additional heat recovery system.

    The seats will be mounted on the bleacher-base. What I'm saying is that they're not going to just be putting a backrest onto the bleachers. My guess is that they'll be of a little better quality than the seats that comprised of the blueline club the past few years.

    While pouring concrete would have been the best looking option...I don't dislike the metal...you can make a lot more noise stomping on metal than concrete.
    Thanks for the clarification!

    Was at Merrimack yesterday, it does not look like they are adding these seats but simply putting in new bleachers. Is that correct?
    No that is not correct.

    Yea, you can have bleachers with seat backs... For example... the old seating at the WBA dump.
