Roofing of stadium to be built using PVC/polyester membrane

The UK based roofing specialist Hightex, has won a contract to supply the complete roof system for the new National Stadium in Warsaw, Poland.

The company will be constructing the roofing of the stadium through its joint venture with Cimolai SpA of Italy and Mostostal Zabrze Holding Sp Z.o.o. of Poland.

The roof consists of a radial cable system supporting the fixed outer portion of nearly 55,000 square metres of PTFE/glass membrane, with a retractable inner roof in the more flexible PVC/polyester membrane with a surface area of some 11,000 square metres.

The inner fabric when open is stored in a membrane garage which opens and closes by sliding vertically. Hightex has a long history of designing and installing large span roofs and facades using tensile polymer membranes, exemplified by the Berlin Olympic Stadium, Germany.

The design work will commence immediately, with completion planned to take place in April 2011 and the total contract value for the joint venture is approximately €78 million.
