Project

National Stadium Lia Manoliu in Bucharest

The construction industry knows no borders: German-based Max Bögl and Italian partner Astaldi are building Romania´s new national stadium Lia Manoliu in Bucharest. The engineers consulted MEVA´s formwork expertise because the expectations on concrete finish are very high. MEVA suggested using the unique shoring tower SPACE to build the 27.5 m high columns – a safe, fast and efficient method, as the site report shows.

The 55,000 seater stadium is a 6 level complex on 108,000 m², with parking garage, shops, restaurants and conference rooms. The translucent roof can be closed or opened completely.

The stadium is named after the Romanian discus thrower and Olympic gold medallist Lia Manoliu, who died in 1998. The old stadium, dating from 1953 was demolished in 2008. The European league finals will take place here in 2012.

120 columns, 27.5 m high, being built using MEVA´s shoring tower SPACE and the 100 kN/m² Mammut 350 wall formwork system. Its 100 % wood-free facing delivered a superior concrete finish.
