New Stadium for Austria's Record Football Champion

Allianz Stadium is being realized with the help of BÖRNER expertise

"It makes me proud to be involved in planning and constructing the most modern and probably most beautiful stadium of Austria. The new stadium will also be a large landmark and distinctive center of encounter and integration in the Western of part of Vienna [...] ", says Michael Krammer, President of the traditional football club SK Rapid Wien.

The Hans Börner GmbH & Co. KG is also involved in the project and brings in their expertise in the construction of stadium roofs. In close cooperation with the Vienna Strabag AG, Börner is responsible for the glazing of the stadium. At the Allianz Stadium, both roof and facades will be glazed. The glazing is fitted with the high-quality and robust material Makrolon by BAYER AG.

It has been a requirement by SK Rapid to integrate the club color green into the design of the stadium. As a result, four transparent and translucent shades of green are being used for the glazing. Thus, SK Rapid's tradition is clearly visible. However, not only tradition played a major role in the design of the stadium, also the experience of the fans. Therefore, the stadium is planned with a transparent roof and facade to give the fans the feeling to sit outdoors while being protected from the elements. However, it has been a challenge to implement a consistently transparent glazing over the large roof area with a length of 32m and a cantilevered span of 1.5m. "Thanks to many years of experience in the construction of stadium roofs, we are certainly in a position to implement this project expertly and professionally," explains Gerold Schleidt, Sales Manager at BÖRNER.

The new stadium with 24,000 seats is currently being realized and will be finalized by summer 2016. The aim is to provide ideal conditions for players, fans, media and neighboring residents in order to set up SK Rapid optimally for the future. BÖRNER is proud about their decisive contribution in establishing the new venue not only as a modern football stadium but also as a landmark of the city of Vienna.
