Türk Telekom Arena is taking shape
The topography of the sloped site with a level difference of up to 60 meters from one end to the other posed a particular challenge. Special foundation measures were necessary – especially for the large “super-columns” that support the roof structure.
Structural work is progressing and well in schedule according to the general contractor. Sub-contractor for the retractable roof structure will be a Chinese firm that was already involved in the construction of the Beijing Olympic Stadium.
