Project Design: Stadiums, arenas, villages, sports facilities

Despite facing widespread budgetary constraints, clubs, leagues and local authorities are often tasked with developing their sports infrastructure through construction, renovation and extension projects. Combining modular and sustainable design objectives, our “sustainable modular” construction approach has been widely adopted thanks to the adaptability of our solutions for stadiums and villages.
