Stadium Wroclaw (Breslau)

A new arena for football championships

As a specialist in the construction of large sporting facilities, the Max Bögl group operates in many countries – including Poland, which will co-host the Euro 2012 soccer championships with Ukraine.

Project profile

Poland is investing more than 25 billion euros in upgrading its infrastructure for this prestigious event, covering the development of new football stadiums and the expansion of existing venues – notably the construction of a modern football arena for 43,000 spectators in Wrocław.

The Wrocław 2012 project company – founded by the City of Wrocław for construction of the stadium – awarded Max Bögl the contract for the 160 million euro project, which is based on designs by Düsseldorf architects JSK.

Designed as a classic two-tier stadium with an intermediate corporate box level, the structure is an unusual construction. In most stadiums, public areas are incorporated compactly below the stands and the tiers are connected via external stairways. The new Wrocław Euro stadium features open stands with public areas and walkways on the outside. The resultant large interior spaces incorporate open stairs for access and offer a view of the illuminated underside of the stand structure. Another architectural and structural highlight of the design is an oval roof and facade – giving the stadium a distinctive appearance and, by extension, creating an impressive landmark for the city of Wrocław.

Efficient design management

As general contractor, Max Bögl is responsible for turnkey delivery of the completed stadium. The greatest challenge posed by this project is the extremely short construction period – no major stadium in the world has ever been built in such a short space of time. To meet this tight deadline and manage the large number of plans involved, Max Bögl decided to use think project!.
