Taiyo Birdair do Brasil has recently completed tensile fabric roofs for 3 new stadiums in Brazil. Fonte Nova (Salvador) and Estadio Nacional (Brasilia) were both significant rebuilds of existing stadiums. At Mineirao Stadium (Belo Horizonte) the existing concrete cantilever roof, dating from the 1960’s, was extended by 25m to increase the covered seating. Important features of the design and construction of these roofs will be covered in this presentation.
Mike Lester, Managing Director of MakMax Australia will be giving the presentation.
