Arup has been appointed by Stadium for Bath to play a central role in the design of a new community-focused stadium for the city.
The appointment follows a rigorous, multi-stage procurement process involving a series of workshops with the Stadium for Bath team. The workshops explored engineering challenges posed by the proposed site, which is positioned in the centre of the UNESCO World Heritage city.
Arup will provide civil, geotechnical, structural, mechanical, electrical and public health engineering as well as ICT, audio visual, acoustic and specialist lighting design for the new 18,000 seat, digitally-enabled stadium. Arup’s team will be led from Bristol and will work closely with the other firms appointed to design the stadium: Grimshaw Architects, Kay Elliot and Gross Max.
