Baku Stadium

Construction of the new Baku Stadium showcases BIM benefits

The Baku National Stadium is a prime example of the benefits of BIM, showcasing the speed and design quality at every level of its development. The new 68,000-seat, retractable roof stadium hosted the opening ceremony of the first European Games held in June 2015. What is more, the truly global team had just 24 months to design and build the venue.

By using Tekla Structures and Tekla BIMsight software the contractor had an opportunity to make a huge step towards paperless workflow, which proved priceless later on. The software was also a strategic tool for communication due to the geographical diversity of the project participants.

The giant Baku stadium project employed 4,500 persons at the peak. The construction site was remarkably safe reaching 13,000,000 accident-free man-hours.
