Award-winning stadium in Spain

Civil Engineering prize for Atletico Madrid’s new home base

The Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, built by FCC Construcción and featuring technology from BBR Network Member BBR PTE (part of FCC Construcción), has won the award for "Best Public Municipal Work 2017" in the prestigious Demarcation Awards of Madrid, presented by the College of Civil Engineers. The new stadium can accommodate over 68,000 fans and parking for 3,000 cars is available outside. The BBR VT CONA CMF flat system was used – for the first time in Spain – to post-tension the grandstands. Atlético Madrid’s new home has already established its place on the international scene as it has been selected to host the 2019 UEFA Champions League Final. A video overview of the project is available here.
