At the "Volgograd Arena" stadium another "check point" was reached - the lifting of the largest cable-stayed roof in the Russian Federation was completed. Team consisting of masters of different nationalities, including the specialists from “JVK-Cimolai”, took part in the lifting.

A unique cable-stayed roof, the project of which was developed specifically for «Volgograd Arena», is one of the most substantial and massive in Russia at the moment. According to Mark Gontier, the head of the installation supervision, the design is in perfect harmony with the overall design of the Arena and complements the majestic appearance of the entire stadium as a whole.

Further, the installation of a roof covering –  not only a strong but also elastic membrane resistant to temperature changes – will be carried out. At the same time, the installation has already started in the foyer area and is currently at the stage of fixing the roof subsystem –  special steel structures which serve as the basis for the membrane.

Let us recall that “JVK-Cimolai” is responsible for the installation of all steel structures as well as for the supply of the ready-made structures and elements required for their assembly on site.
