CIVIC AMENITIES, SPORTS FACILITIES, FACADES
Most of us imagine steel structures as parts of technological buildings or bridges. However, they are equally interesting in facilities we encounter in our everyday life such as city stadiums, parking houses, the Underground stations and television transmitters.
Our unique structures:
- A steel structure of The Broad Museum facade, 550 t, Los Angeles
- Reconstruction of the Vítkovice City Stadium, Stage I, 937 t, Czech Republic
- Conversion of a gas holder to the multifunctional auditorium GONG, 368 t, Czech Republic
- A steel structure, Praha – Střížkov Underground station, 320 t, Czech Republic
CITY STADIUM RECONSTRUCTION STAGE I
Description: The reconstruction of the City Stadium as a project whose significance exceeds the regional reach was decided to become an investment in the middle of 2011. It was selected in preference to the construction of a new city football stadium. Stage I of the reconstruction was initiated by demolishing the concrete terrace in the eastern part of the stadium. A covered stand for 5 thousand spectators was built in its place. The athletic track and the grassy area of the stadium were given new surface, too. Among 49 structures in total there are also entrances for spectators, reconstructed towers for artificial lightning, a warehousing hall, drainage under the athletic track, and Energocentre South, etc. The first stage had been finished before the 52th Golden Spike Ostrava in June 2013. Steel structures for the eastern stand of the City Stadium in Ostrava – Vítkovice were supplied by the bridge factory of VÍTKOVICE POWER ENGINEERING a. s. The contract was signed in October 2012. The weight of the steel structure amounts to 903 tons, from which 38 tons are galvanized trapezoidal plates (4,020 m2). The steel structure of the stand is composed of 3,837 segments. The stand is for about 5,000 spectators, including the basement, a building for energy monitoring, warehousing hall, entrances and buildings for transport and technical infrastructure. The steel structure for the eastern stand consists of 18 solid frames, girdles and girders to support RC prefabricated steps, roof girders, a vertical structure between the back walls of the frames, and vertical and horizontal footbridges. The sides of the structure are curved with axes of 8.5°. The steel structure is at the back about 168 cm in length, 20.8 m in width and about 18.9 m in height.

Prague – Střížkov Metro Station
Description: Every two years, the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) awards significant structures in the area of steel structures in the individual member countries. In 2009, the Steel Design Awards international jury selected a Czech structure that was nominated by the Czech Constructional Steelwork Association. It was the Střížkov Metro Station in Prague. The investor was Prague Public Transit, the architect Ing. arch. Patrik Kotas, the general project designer Metroprojekt Praha and the steel structure project architect Excon. The steel structure was produced by Metrostav – division 7 (the major supplier), Excon Steel a Vítkovice Power Engineering. The ceremony, considered the greatest event in the field of steel structures in 2009, occurred on 17th September in Barcelona, Spain. All 18 awarded delegations from the individual countries. The project was among such buildings as the Copenhagen Concert Hall, European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, Terminal 2E of the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, Letzigrund stadium in Zürich, Centre Court in Wimbledon or Swedbank Stadion in Malmö. The Střížkov Metro station is with its structure unique among the stations within the Prague Metro network. The most demanding task concerning the steel structure was to apply the architect's vision in terms of the structural analysis and structure producibility. The dimensions of the roof are 160 x 42 m with the maximum height 20 m above the ground. The load-bearing structure is composed of two major arcs crossed at the beginning and the end of the station. The arcs are interconnected by using three joining components and the whole roof structure is hanged on them.
