Richmond Olympic Oval, Canada
The Richmond Olympic Oval in Canada is a breathtaking venue 15 kilometres south of Vancouver on the banks of the Fraser River, and winner of over 30 design and innovation awards, like the Institution of Structural Engineers’ top award for sports or leisure structures.
Home to long-track speed skating during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, the Richmond Olympic Oval is now a multi-purpose sports hall and offers an inspiring environment for all ages and skill levels.
The construction process required close collaboration to ensure that the spectacular vision was realised and ready for opening day. Designed to resemble a bird’s wings in flight, this facility, with its unique construction challenges, was completed on time and on budget.
HeidelbergCement’s subsidiary supplied 35,000 cubic metres of ready-mixed concrete for the project.
