Low & Bonar GmbH, formerly known as Mehler Texnologies, develop special blue coloured membrane for Volgograd Arena

Volgograd Arena

Fact File
Project Name: Volgograd Arena, Russia
Material: VALMEX MEHATOP F1 TYPE IV
Quantity: 37.000 sqm white color; 44.000 sqm light blue color Design: gmp architetcts
Execution: PI Arena
Completion: 2018
Client: Sportengineering
Multi-disciplinary engineering: PI Arena
Structural engineers: design by sbp, execution by PG Maximum
Consulting engineer membrane: Maffeis Engineering
Main contractor: Stroytransgaz
Contractor for membrane: Kurganstalmost (KSM)
Manufacture and installation: Dovleti/Kubantent

The Volgograd Arena, built near the Volga River, has a capacity of around 45,000 spectators. German gmp architects from Berlin developed the design together with sbp as structural engineers. Apart from being a venue of several group games, the stadium will host FC Rotor Volgograd in the future.

Volgograd Arena
Project institute ARENA (PI Arena), a Russian architects’ office, coordinated the planning process and was responsible for the execution during implementation. The detail planning of the roof was monitored by Maffeis Engineering.

The grandstand areas have a cover of blue and white rhombi consisting of membranes made in Germany. Low & Bonar GmbH provided more than 80,000 sqm of technical textiles in two colours. The roof adds up to the eye-catching venue as a whole – meant to embed this specific stadium in the public memory and essentially putting the venue and its location on the map. Hence, Volgograd Arena and “The Motherland Calls” statue as its direct neighbour, tell the city’s story of the past and the present.

Low & Bonar GmbH developed a specific type of blue coloured membrane which features the colour of the club which is to overtake the stadium after the FIFA world cup.

By chance, the club’s blue and white rhombi are very similar to the Bavarian flag in southern Germany. The international public knows the light blue and white emblem from the Oktoberfest in Munich. There might even be the opportunity for an Oktoberfest edition in the newly built Volgograd Arena.
