VIDEO: Roof Completed at Madrid Stadium

Madrid’s new soccer stadium, which is slated to open in a few weeks, now has a completed roof as shown by time lapse video released by the construction company on the project.

FCC Construcción recently released the video that shows the installation of all 96 PTFE radial panels on the Atlético Madrid project named the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

Designed by architectural firm Cruz y Ortiz Arquitectos and supported by engineers at Schlaich Bergermann Partner, the roof took about four months to install.

The roof is oversized in style, and is made of two rings: a central double traction ring on the inside and a tridimensional double truss ring on the outer perimeter.

“A light roof covering spectators sits on the collection of stands like a large cloak,” notes a description on the architect’s website. “It can adapt to different situations and unifies the existing stadium and the extension.”

While the roof took a few months, the project began construction in 2011. With the bulk of the stadium complete, work now focuses on changes to a major highway near the project.

The goal is to have construction complete by Sept. 17, when Atlético Madrid is to face Málaga in its first scheduled home match of the season.
