Replacing an entire stadium roof within just a few weeks? Not a problem for the cable construction experts at PFEIFER! They proved themselves yet again with a renovation project for the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart.
Rebuilding during summer break
During the 2017 summer break from playing, the cable construction team equipped the first-division stadium for VfB Stuttgart with a completely new membrane roof. After 25 years, the old roofing needed to be replaced.
The project involved removing and replacing all 40 segments of the delicate roof structure, measuring more than 38,000 square meters. The new membranes were delivered by the Chinese subsidiary PFEIFER Covertex – their first assignment in Germany since being acquired in 2015.
It was not just the project participants who were excited – the PFEIFER team also had a very positive response. That’s no surprise, because the results are truly impressive. See for yourself in the video:
