Salzburg Arena - Austria
This impressive concrete and timber structure, one of the largest recently constructed in Austria. An architectural landmark, sited in the Congress Area of Salzburg, on the outskirts of the historic city; the building has an 81 m x 107 m envelope, giving an effective arena area of 2,650 m² and a capacity of 6,700 spectators for sports events, where the city had previously been able to accommodate no more than 2,200 under one roof. In order to meet the quality requirements for the engineering design and the structural analysis, utmost precision and a great deal of experience in precast construction were necessary.
It was all the more simple to realise the specified architecture in virtual components and the production and the changes in configuration of reinforcements were also easier to develop using 3D illustrations.
