To be able to host the opening ceremony and first game of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo, Brazil needed to add over 16,000 seats. Structurflex fabricated and installed a coated PES membrane ceiling above the stands and below the stadium roof, to protect those seats from heat and direct sunlight.
To achieve the architect’s vision of a smooth and seamless visible surface, the membrane material was installed from the underside of the roof’s steel structure. Structurflex designed, tested and manufactured a custom extrusion to facilitate the installation.
An expedited construction schedule and worldwide media attention meant zero margin for re-work or delay. Structurflex assembled a team of expert installers to safely attach the custom extrusions and install the membrane ceiling. Despite the short timeframe and initial language barriers, both the tensile membrane and the supporting structure were installed correctly and on time.
