Avicii Arena Stockholm building news
Stockholm Globe Arena Fastigheter AB (SGAF) and the Avicii Arena project team have unveiled further details about the modernization and transformation project. NCC, the Nordic construction company that built the original venue in 1989, has been selected as the construction manager for the project. The iconic venue, listed as a heritage building, is set to undergo a significant upgrade.
The renowned building, home to Sweden’s national hockey team, hosts a diverse array of eventsand high-profile concerts. The National Hockey League (NHL) recently announced plans for four regular season games to be held at the venue later this year.
New artists renderings, which are subject to change, illustrate the extensive retrofit of the structure, which will feature a unique retractable ceiling concept to enhance acoustics and create a more intimate atmosphere for fans and concert-goers. A ring-like structure will hover above the seating bowl, with automated, movable panels that can transform the building and optimize the reverberation time according to the type of event. When not in use, panels can be parked out of sight to allow unobstructed views of the spherical building.
HOK is the design architect, C.F. Moller Architects is the associate architect and sbp is the structural engineer and design lead for the retractable roof. Ramboll is the MEP engineer, Efterklang is the acoustical engineer, Light Bureau is the lighting designer, AFRY is overseeing cost management and Movement Strategies is leading crowd dynamics.
