The Ras Abu Aboud Stadium will be setting a new standard for sustainability for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar using a modular, reusable design. The stadium will be constructed using shipping containers, and removable seats, among other “modular building blocks” to allow it to be completely broken down, moved and used again either as another stadium, or even a completely different venue, such as for concerts or other non-sporting uses.
The video below shows the bigger picture including a projected “walk-through” of the finished stadium that is slated to be complete before the 2022 World Cup.
When the tournament is over, the stadium will be dismantled to make way for a waterfront development for the locals in the area to enjoy. Just imagine being able to construct giant arenas such as this, be able to deconstruct it, and leave a beautiful park or other gathering area for the local community once it’s gone. This could be a city planners’ dream, knowing they could easily use and reuse pieces from different projects for temporary venues for various events, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in construction costs.
The Ras Abu Aboud Stadium will also give global stadium developers and tournament planners around the world a wonderful example to follow with its sustainable and low cost model. The venue’s modular and temporary design will mean that fewer building materials will be needed (and used) than in traditional stadium building, which definitely keeps construction costs lower.
And since other projects can reuse the seats, roof, and other components from this stadium, parts of the arena will be used (and reused) for years and possibly even decades to come.
Lowering construction costs and ensuring regular future use are key ingredients in making sustainable projects and the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium could potentially be creating an innovative precedent that other countries and builders will be able to easily follow.
