Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium - Abu Dhabi

Design and build contract for a multi-functional stadium in the United Arab Emirates. The 25,000 seats stadium is located in Al Ain, approximately 150 kilometres east of Abu Dhabi, close to the borders of Oman.

Client was represented by AAFAQ Holdings. The project was realised in close cooperation with sister companies BAM Sports, specialised in stadium construction, and BAM Contractors from Ireland.

The scope of work included the construction of a multi-functional stadium with a gross floor area of 45,000 square metres. In addition BAM built a six storey office building, a sports hall and external works comprising roads, car parking, playing fields and landscaping.

The construction of the stadium is a combination of structural steel and reinforced concrete on piled foundations (by others) with aluminium and composite external cladding and a palm bowl envelope. The stadium is not enclosed.
