An ambitious architectural project in the Saint-Isidore area of Nice, the new "Allianz Riviera" stadium is a positive energy building. Inaugurated in September 2013, it will be one of the host stadiums for Euro 2016.
The project includes a 35,000 seat multi-purpose stadium, the National Museum of Sport, 29,000 sqm of fully integrated retail space (shops in the stadium forecourt, museum set in the north stand), an underground car park with 1300 spaces and landscaped grounds covering 2 hectares (approx. 5 acres).
The stadium is clad in a three-dimensional mixed wood and metal structure covered with PVC and ETFE canvas and a photovoltaic system.
This is a flagship project for sustainable development and technical performance: mass use of wood, geothermal energy for producing hot and cold air, natural ventilation, water recovery for watering the lawn and supplying the toilets, and implementation of a photovoltaic power system with a surface area of 8500 sqm, making this an eco-positive stadium.
Egis is providing general engineering and environmental engineering for the project.
