Constructed using shipping containers, removable seats and other modular "building blocks", not only will this innovative, 40,000-seat venue have a remarkable design, but it will be entirely dismantled and repurposed after the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™. 


CASE OVERVIEW
 
Under its proposal to FIFA, Qatar will build 9 new stadiums and renovate 3, with the 12 venues divided among 7 host cities. Located on the shores of the Gulf, looking across to Doha's dazzling West Bay skyline, Ras Abu Aboud Stadium will be a spectacular venue for matches up to the quarter-finals of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™. Following the tournament's conclusion, the stadium will be dismantled and make way for a waterfront development for local people to enjoy.

Qatar's bid organisers say that the stadiums will be zero-carbon emitting and climate controlled (The Fifa World Cup is always held in Europe's off-season in June and July, and during this time Qatar's average daytime high is in excess of 40 °C). The stadiums will take measures to reduce solar radiation and warm winds, and provide soft air conditioning to provide adequate climatic conditions (these measures have not before been deployed on stadiums of this size).

Constructed using shipping containers, removable seats and other modular "building blocks", not only will this innovative, 40,000-seat venue have a remarkable design, but it will be entirely dismantled and repurposed after the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™. Its parts will be used in other sporting or non-sporting projects, setting a new standard in sustainability and introducing bold new ideas in tournament legacy planning.

As well as providing invaluable infrastructure to sporting projects far and wide, Ras Abu Aboud Stadium will also give global stadium developers and tournament planners a fine example to follow.

The venue's temporary nature and clever modular design will mean that fewer building materials will be required than in traditional stadium building, helping to keep construction costs down.

SOLUTION 
 
Aligning with the requirements of FIFA and Qatar’s bid organisers Mackwell worked with Hilson Moran’s Qatar office who played a key role in the design of this unique, fully modular and reusable stadium.

Mackwell supported with a XYLUX LD5 DALI luminaire meeting the specific requirement for the region. The high performance self-contained LED emergency luminaire is supplied with two snap-in optics for both open area and escape route distribution, making it a versatile solution. The XYLUX LD5 has the added benefit of providing an equally aesthetic, compliant emergency lighting system to help ensure the safety of both visitors, workers and players alike.

Due to the construction and use of shipping containers, all emergency luminaires are being installed prior to shipping.

Mackwell’s used SmartCharge technology within the emergency products providing, energy efficient charging maintenance, reduced operating temperatures and optimum service life of NiMH batteries. Through the utilisation of Mackwell’s SmartCharge™ technology, power consumption of emergency modules is reduced by typically two thirds and the service life of batteries extended as a result of their operating temperatures being reduced by up to 10°C.
