Construction of a temporary arena – London Olympic Games


For the 2012 London Olympic Games, we built a 100 m x 100 m x 30 m high arena. This turnkey solution was managed from A to Z by our teams.

This multifunctional building was used to accommodate several indoor sports disciplines during this competition: handball, basketball, etc. as well as media areas, changing rooms, washroom facilities and a VIP area in additional areas.

The 12,000-seat arena, built with a steel frame and stretched canvas system, only took us six months to assemble.

Finally, the building is FIBA, IHF, IWBF and WRF approved.
