Record-size dome roof for stadium



By Chia Han Keong
my paper
Friday, Oct 05, 2012
Construction has commenced for the world's largest dome roof, which will cover the new National Stadium at the Singapore Sports Hub in Kallang.

The dome will span 310m over the entire stadium - across its 55,000-seat capacity, as well as the multi-purpose sports field - when the Sports Hub opens in April 2014.

It is set to exceed the current largest dome roof in the world, covering the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, which is the home ground of professional American football team Dallas Cowboys. Its dome spans 275m.

Mr Clive Lewis, the lead sports-venue designer for the Sports Hub, said that the dome design is a result of trying to offer Singaporeans the best stadium experience.

"The tropical climate in Singapore poses a challenge. We wanted to keep the rain and heat out, but we also wanted the stadium to be an open and dynamic space," he explained.

"The dome shape forms a naturally ventilated stadium, one which gives us the best solution."

The dome roof will also incorporate a 20,000 sq m movable section, which will further protect spectators and the field from heavy rain.

When ready, the National Stadium will form a striking part of the Singapore skyline, with the "inverted" roof of the nearby Singapore Indoor Stadium forming an aesthetic contrast.

It will be able to host a wide array of sporting events, from athletics and football to even cricket.

Besides the National Stadium, the Sports Hub will also include plenty of other sporting and recreational amenities.

It will include two blocks of multi-purpose indoor sports arenas, each capable of hosting up to 3,000 spectators.

There will also be an Aquatics Centre and a Water Sports Centre for water-based activities.

The hub will also contain retail outlets, a sports library and museum, and a visitor centre.

Its design is headed by global design, engineering and business consultancy firm Arup, which has helped create other iconic landmarks like Marina Bay Sands and Beijing's Bird's Nest Stadium Last month, the National Stadium launched a showroom of its corporate hospitality suites.

The 61 suites are priced between $72,000 and $272,000 for a year's lease, and offer VIP treatment, private dining and the best views in the stadium.

Another world record. Hope it wouldn't be under-utilised like the Esplanade!
