Challenges and solutions

Our team worked alongside the CEO to combine a practical and aesthetically pleasing design. To answer ventilation and lighting requirements we inserted a ridge-line in a section of the roof that was lifted creating a 'stepped roofline'. This combined with a steeper roof pitch answered our client's creative and functional requirements.

A large clear span design was chosen to provide plenty of unobstructed arena space with a cantilever roof on both sides for spectator room.
