Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium Sustainability
Al Rayyan's location on the edge of the desert has shaped a resourceful city that does not tolerate waste.
Therefore, from its very conception, the creation of Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan has had sustainability at its core, backed by the commitment of the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy to green construction.
Turning old into new
Many of the materials from the deconstructed venue that once occupied this site – also named Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium – are used throughout the new stadium complex. Some will even find a place in public art installations. Over 80% of the construction materials have been reused or recycled. Trees that once surrounded the old venue were retained for future replanting, minimising damage to the natural environment.
Any new materials required for construction were carefully chosen for their environmentally friendly qualities.
A venue for tomorrow
Energy and water efficiency measures have been put into place, and further reductions in the stadium's carbon footprint come thanks to the metro connection delivered by Qatar Rail. The stadium precinct has conveniently located bike lanes and walking paths, as well as 125,000m2 of new green space featuring native, low-water-consumption plants for the community to enjoy.
Football fans watching matches at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium can travel via an environmentally friendly metro system to a truly sustainable venue.
