The best project in the international nomination TOBY "Renovated building" - Grand Sports Arena "Luzhniki"
TOBY is the only block of nominations in Russia that is held in the real estate segment and has an international status. Since the award is held jointly with the American Association of Homeowners and Building Managers (BOMA International, USA), a victory in the TOBY block of nominations automatically brings the winner to the international arena.
The renovation work began in 2014 and included the dismantling of existing structures and the construction of new structures in accordance with FIFA requirements. In addition, it was necessary to increase the area of the translucent cover by installing a visor along the inner contour of the stadium roof. As a result of the reconstruction, the canopy was lengthened by 14 meters, which also protects all spectators in the lower rows from precipitation.
The project participants solved the unique task of preserving the historical facade of the building while dismantling the structures inside the arena. As a result of the reconstruction, the stadium's capacity has increased from 78 to 81 thousand spectators. An observation deck has been created at the upper level of Luzhniki, which is accessible to the public.
Also, a unique design solution for this object was the structure of a media roof, which allows broadcasting information about the ongoing competition, and the rest of the time due to this solution, the architectural lighting of the building is performed.
The Metropolis company developed the concept, project documentation and detail design in terms of design solutions and internal engineering systems.
We congratulate the project team and wish them new professional success and victories!
