The football stadium in Dunajská Streda, a town in Slovakia, originally opened in 1953. Since then, it has undergone several modernizations and renovations. The current reconstruction will not only increase the capacity to 13,000 spectators, but also ensure that the stadium meets the requirements of the UEFA stadium infrastructure.
The project requires a phased construction of a new football stadium combined with a partial renovation of the existing one. The construction started in the spring of 2016 with the first phase and the entire complex should be finished in 2018.
The main structure of the stands and the main building are made of prefabricated reinforced concrete elements. The roof, façade and secondary structures are made of steel elements. The lengths of stands are 122.4 m and 82 m. The width of the stands is 18.45 m.
Creating a global static model with SCIA Engineer
SCIA Engineer was used to create a global static model. As a part of the analysis in SCIA Engineer, multiple effects were checked:
- normative loads and effects,
- dynamic effects,
- fire resistance,
- the overall behaviour of the structure.
Subsequently, a detailed design of reinforcement in concrete elements was performed, and the elements were checked for both limit states. The steel components were also checked for both limit states. Workshop documentation was created in Allplan and Tekla Structures and the model was sent from SCIA Engineer to the applications enabling an effective collaboration.
“To BIM or not to BIM was not the question in this interesting stadium. SCIA Engineer offered the central information model that was exchanged with other software, such as Allplan, Tekla, Peikko Designer and Hilti. Moreover, advanced calculations like dynamic effects and fire resistance were performed.”
