I’m sure a lot of sports fans have already heard about the new Juventus Stadium. It’s the home of the well known football team Juventus, the renowned serie A club. The location of the stadium was Stadio delle Alpi, located in the borough of Turin: Valette in Italy. Being a historical place for football, it was decided that the stadium needed to be rebuilt.
Now it has all the facilities you can possibly desire. The plans concerning the stadium were exposed in November 2008 and the location was to be the same: Stadio Delle Alpi. A lot of money was invested in it. Around €100 million (£90 million). The stadium can host 41000 people and this also includes 3.600 premium seats and 120 executive boxes.
The architects decided to remove the running track to make room for stands ,executive boxes and other modern improvements. The distance between the stands and the pitch is of only 7.5 m-and if you compare it with the former stadium it’s a very big difference. The new stadium’s last row is at a 49 m distance from the pitch.
The designers of the place thought of everything and wanted to improve the fan’s comfort and satisfaction. This is why the parking space can house 4.000 vehicles. There is also a shopping complex of 34.000 m2 and the good news is that it’s open every day. Since Juventus has been famous for such a long time it was decided to include a museum dedicated to this famous serie A club.
The project was based on a modern approach. The methods used in building the new stadium combine ecological and environmental processes to reduce the impact on the construction site, all this being successfully done with the help of high advanced technologies. The new stadium has a system based on a low use of energy consumption, mainly being sustained by non renewable energy.
Photovoltaic panels are being used to capture the solar energy so that this eliminates waste of resources. This is how the necessary electricity is produced. These alternative energy sources also are a standpoint for modern, ecological methods in the architecture and structure of buildings. The solar energy produces warm water via the photovoltaic panels-this heats the kitchens, the football stadium and other rooms through a system specifically designed to spread throughout the entire surface of Juventus Stadium.
