Steel construction for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia

  1. 1. STEEL CONSTRUCTION FOR THE 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP IN RUSSIA
  2. 2. WWW.SHAPECUT.COM.AU THE BIGGEST SPORTING EVENT IN THE WORLD IS BACK OVER A MILLION TOURISTS WOULD BE EXPECTED TO VISIT THE RUSSIA DURING THE MONTH-LONG EVENT, WHICH TAKES PLACE IN 11 DIFFERENT CITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. This would require a fundamental improvement to the nation’s railway network, moving spectators along the 5,500 kilometres between all the stadiums in 700 new trains.
  3. 3. KEY STADIUMS IN FOCUS FISHT STADIUM WAS ORIGINALLY COMMISSIONED FOR THE 2014 WINTER OLYMPICS HELD IN RUSSIA. It’s a modern marvel of structural engineering and fabrication, sporting an astounding 8,000 tonnes of reinforced steel in the roof and rigging.
  4. 4. BY USING A STURDY BUT FLEXIBLE CUT STEEL FRAMEWORK, ENGINEERS CAN REWORK THE STADIUM TO SUIT DIFFERENT EVENTS AND CAPACITIES FOR LATER USE.
  5. 5. RECONFIGURABILITY ALLOWS VENUE HOSTS TO ACCOMMODATE DIFFERENT SPORTS BESIDES FOOTBALL, IF REQUIRED.
  6. 6. WHILE THE VTB ARENA IS NOT OFFICIALLY A PART OF RUSSIA’S WORLD CUP, THE NEWLY-RENOVATED STADIUM IS A TESTAMENT TO THE CAPABILITY OF STEEL IN STADIUM DESIGN. The steel structure was crafted to host not only a football field but also an ice hockey rink, as well as shops, restaurants and a massive car park. Seating could be reconfigured to hold anywhere between 27,000 and 45,000 people depending on the event requirements across two tiers. A TESTAMENT TO THE CAPABILITY OF STEEL
  7. 7. MAKING LONGEVITY POSSIBLE WAS A COMPLEX STEEL STRUCTURE THAT WAS COATED WITH A SPECIAL ZINC-BASED ANTI-CORROSION PRIMER TO HANDLE THE EXTREME MOSCOW FREEZE.
  8. 8. TRANSFORMABLE STRUCTURES ARE A RELATIVE NEWCOMER TO THE WORLD OF STEEL ENGINEERING. These innovations allow massive stadiums like these to stay current with the times, instead of having to be torn down entirely when changes are needed. This represents a major shift towards making these buildings more environmentally friendly and able to grow with new demand. MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY BUILDINGS
