Modern Construction Techniques Beijing National Stadium and Wembley Stadium

102500 Both of these Stadiums were carefully planned and they were built in order to meet the demands of specific events. The Wembley Stadium in London was constructed in order to host the events of FA Cup Final – a target that was never met. In accordance with the initial deadline, the Wembley Stadium ‘was supposed to be completed by May 2006 for the FA Cup Final (but this was transferred to Cardiff) after consultation with Multiplex about when the stadium would be finished’ (Designbuild – network, 2008, online report). A series of failures in the project’s progress led the project’s contractors to decide the delay of the project’s delivery. The construction of the Stadium – which is cited at North West London (Borough of Brent) – has been monitored – through all its stages by Multiplex Constructions Ltd (contractors) with the aid of Foster &amp. Partners, a firm that dealt with the design of the relevant plans (Designbuild Network, 2008, online article). The whole project cost about 757m pounds and was finally delivered – as noticed above – in March 2007 despite the fact that it was supposed to be ready in March 2006. Wembley Stadium is considered to be one of the most important features of Britain’s sports sector. the Stadium can be compared – as to its structure, functionality, and innovation with the Beijing Olympic Stadium (China), a Stadium that was constructed in order to host the Olympic Games of 2008. Beijing Stadium is cited in Beijing (China, Chao Yang District). The design of the Stadium was delegated to ‘Herzog &amp. de Meuron Architekten AG, the Arup, and the China Architectural Design and Research Group’ (Arup, East Asia, 2008, online report). The Stadium was completed by June 28, 2008, and its cost has been estimated to $500m – lower than the cost of Wembley Stadium – which however is of higher capacity being able to host 90,000 people – Beijing can host only 80,000.
