Stadium 974 Sustainability
The concept of sustainability is at the very core of Stadium 974. Its seaside location offers a natural cool breeze to lighten the load on the stadium's cooling systems.
In a first for a FIFA World Cup™ stadium, this 40,000-seat arena will be fully demountable. This is possible thanks to the unique way it is constructed, using shipping containers and modular seating.
Cutting the cost of construction
The construction model of this stadium stands it in good stead as it aims for a 4-star Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) certification.
The design uses prefabricated and modular elements. This approach reduced the waste generated during production of stadium components and the waste created on site during construction. The use of modular elements also reduced the venue's construction duration.
In addition, the financial impact was lessened by using fewer construction materials, making this forward-thinking stadium a more sustainable project on many fronts – and an inspiration to stadium developers looking for smart solutions.
