  • By selecting Précontraint 1202 S2 composite membrane for the stadium roof and entrance canopies; Populous took full advantage of the lightness, strength and recyclability of Serge Ferrari composite material in total compliance with the organiser’s environmental strategy. The stadium received the World Stadium Congress 2012’s “Award for the most sustainable stadium”.

    Manufactured based on exclusive Précontraint Serge Ferrari patented technology, the composite membrane guarantees the structure’s exceptional structural and aesthetic durability while maintaining a lightweight solution for the facility. The S2 fluorinated surface treatment ensures additional aesthetic durability.
    Built for the 2012 largest international sporting event, the concept required that the facility be able to host 80,000 spectators during the competition and following the events be able to be reformatted to ultimately host 25,000 fans.
    As for the unused composite, this can find a second life in material re-usage networks or be recycled through Serge Ferrari’s operational Texyloop® Network a determining option for the organiser.
