Sports and Events Hall at Tillypark
The city of Nuremberg is receiving a new multi-functional sports and events hall at Tillypark. The completion of the hall, the two functional buildings as well as the outdoor facilities is planned for the winter of 2020/21. As the general contractor, NUSSLI is responsible for the structural implementation of this major project.
On 29 April 2020, the building permit was submitted to WBG KOMMUNAL GmbH, which the City of Nuremberg has entrusted with the project management. Now the actual construction site can finally be started. The preparatory work to clear the 25,000 m² grounds have already been completed.
The construction of the new sports and events hall will take approximately eight months. As it currently stands, the hall will be completed in the winter of 2020/21. The NUSSLI team thus faces – as is often the case – major scheduling challenges. With participation of teams from Germany, Switzerland and Austria – which is no simple task, especially now during the current Corona situation – the project is off to a good start.
As the general contractor, Nüssli (Deutschland) GmbH is responsible for the hall, which seats up to 4,000 spectators on grandstands, as well as the two functional buildings and the outdoor facilities. The hall measures approx. 91m x 55m and is designed for team sports such as basketball, handball, volleyball or futsal, as well as for other sports such as wrestling or rhythmic gymnastics. It will comply with the latest guidelines of the German Basketball and Handball leagues. Furthermore, the hall can also be used for cultural activities. The two two-storey functional buildings, each measuring 33m x 16m, offer space and infrastructure for professional changing rooms, dressing rooms, a press conference room, a catering area, administration, warm-up hall, etc.
In the past years, NUSSLI has already successfully completed several major hall projects, such as the Hafen 1 event hall in Wolfsburg (GER), the "Show Palace" for Apassionata in Munich (GER) and the ice hockey arena in Lausanne (CH). The projects were finished under great time pressure. For this project, NUSSLI once again effortlessly delivered an impressive, overall turnkey concept for the sports and event hall at the Tillypark. Especially the modern equipment and facilities should be emphasized that are featured in the hall. The effective soundproofing system helps to reduce the emission of noise for the surrounding residential area and the hall's air conditioning system ensures an optimal temperature for spectators and athletes alike.
