FIRST ROOF TRUSS LIFTED INTO PLACE AT THE NEW ANOETA STADIUM
Anoeta Stadium in San Sebastian (Spain) is going through a remodeling which includes a new roof supported by four large trusses. Yesterday, the first truss was successfully raised and put in place. The lifting operation of the north truss, which weighs 400 tons and is 150 m long, constitutes one of the most important milestones of the construction sequence of the new roof.
FHECOR has designed the new stadium roof and the new façade, working together with LKS. The main features of the remodeling of Anoeta are:
Construction of new tiers, removing the athletics track, which will increase the capacity from 26.000 to 42.500 people.
Extension of the roof over East and West end areas; as well as the construction of a new roof over South and North end areas, after the demolition of the existing one, in order to cover all the new tiers. The new roof will be composed of ETFE modules supported by four long-span trusses.
New façade envelope, which provides a new external appearance to the stadium
Currently, FHECOR is part of the Project Management Team for the Owner as technical support during the construction.
