In the vibrant city of Seville, the iconic New Betis Sports City stands as a testament to innovative architectural design and modern Multicell Façade Walls construction. This monumental revamp, orchestrated by Danpal’s subsidiary Pal Plastic in Spain, has redefined the landscape of sports facilities through an exceptional collaboration. At the core of this transformation lies the integration of nearly 3,000 square meters of Danpalon® 22/600, boasting the characteristic green hue that embodies the spirit of the Sevillian sports club.
Danpal’s Unparalleled Contribution
Pal Plastic, a cornerstone of Danpal’s legacy, played a pivotal role in outfitting the sports grounds with Danpalon’s high-performance translucent multicell panels. Crafted to perfection, these panels not only adorn the New Betis Sports City but also elevate its aesthetics to match contemporary architectural standards.
Revolutionizing the Sports Arena with Danpalon Multicell Façade Walls
The engineering marvel led by IDOM, executed by Technical Roof Architects, and constructed by Acciona, transcended conventional boundaries. The challenge was multifaceted: to create a façade that embraced natural light yet guarded against potential vandalism—a prevalent concern in competitive sports arenas. Carlos Calle, the representative of the Andalusian area, sheds light on the intricacies of this project.
Addressing Unique Challenges
The project demanded a delicate balance between aesthetics and durability. The engineer, Raquel Torrente, envisioned a façade that harnessed natural light for an illuminating effect. However, the omnipresent threat of vandalism necessitated a robust solution. The team explored various finishes, ultimately opting for heat-sealed panels with an innovative approach—combining sealing with strategic panel closures—to combat potential damage.
Uniqueness and Innovation
Carlos Calle emphasizes the project’s uniqueness, not just in scale as Spain’s largest sports city but in the innovative utilization of the free-expansion connector. The installation process, aided by the Danpalon® 22/600 system, showcased the versatility and simplicity of Danpal’s offerings, setting new benchmarks in sports complex architecture.
Danpalon’s Selection Rationale
Calle elaborates on the meticulous selection process, highlighting the specific demands of the project that steered the choice towards Danpalon® 22/600 with free-expansion connectors. The need for a ventilated façade with minimal visibility of connectors drove the decision, showcasing Danpal’s commitment to tailored solutions.
Future Prospects and Significance
While the initial phase of the project concludes with the professional field and grounds, the evolving sports city anticipates further development. The imminent completion of the social club and the residential building signifies a promising future, a testament to the enduring legacy of Danpal’s contribution to modern architecture.
Danpal’s integration of a high-performance translucent wall system at New Betis Sports City serves as a beacon for commercial architects seeking innovative solutions. The fusion of functionality and aesthetics in Danpal’s polycarbonate panels redefines possibilities in sports complex architecture, setting new standards for future projects worldwide.
