Design for Ethiopia's New Stadium Blends Tradition With Modern Materials, Engineering

Design for Ethiopia's New Stadium Blends Tradition With Modern Materials, Engineering | Sports Management Facilities 4172907 | Scoop.it

A consortium led by Australia’s LAVA has won an international competition to design a national stadium and sports village in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Its concept blends traditional Ethiopian architectural and construction practices with new technology to create a modern piece of infrastructure.

The team was selected by Ethiopia's Federal Sport Commission (FSC), which wants to replace the current 25,000-seat national stadium with a 60,000-seat stadium and related sports facilities. FSC wants to begin construction in 2014.

Traditional Ethiopian architecture includes examples of excavated historical structures, including ancient rock churches as well as dwellings and cisterns. The team's concept, which includes a sunken arena surrounded by grandstands formed from excavated material, captures elements of those traditional treatments in the stadium’s design...

A twisted ankle or torn ACL can signal the end of a career for a college or professional athlete.  These athletes will put everything on the line for the love of the game and to be able to play in the play-offs.  Oftentimes, the athlete may be pushed too far, beyond what their body should endure.  This article skirts around the possibility of athlete's pushing themselves too far and possibly compromising their own personal ethics to stay in the game.

Brazil Prepares for the 2014 World Cup With 7 Solar Stadiums

Brazil Prepares for the 2014 World Cup With 7 Solar Stadiums | Sports Management Facilities 4172907 | Scoop.it

It’s a Goooooooooaaaaaaaaal! And it’s happening. As soccer-loving Brazil preps for hosting FIFA’s World Cup in 2014, at least seven of its stadiums are incorporating solar arrays to provide on-site power generation for one of the world’s largest sporting events. At least two of the installations were recently completed, one in the capitol city Brasilia—which may become the world’s first LEED Platinum stadium, too—and another in Rio De Janeiro. More installations are on the way. 

 

The stadiums and their solar arrays will help reduce their use of grid-supplied energy. But they’ll also demonstrate the power and benefits of solar to billions of soccer fans around the planet. Since Brazil is hosting the Olympics in 2016, some of the stadiums will also be used for events in that worldwide event.

 

Brazil’s President, Dilma Rousseff inaugurated the National Stadium Mane Garrincha this past weekend at the 2013 Brasilia's Championship soccer game between the Brasilia and Brasiliense soccer teams. The stadium will also host the opening match of the FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 between Brazil and Japan on June 15. Next year it will host seven of the World Cup matches in Brazil, including the game for the second runner up.

 

Brazil also recently reopened the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro. The retrofit of the stadium includes a solar array as well, and the stadium also is trying to qualify for LEED status. “It is a smart building. You collect water from the surface. There are fifty thousand square meters for collecting the water, which may be used in the toilets. The roof’s compression ring has solar power panels. It is not much now, but in the future we’ll be able to use the roof’s membrane for solar power. The technology for this is still being developed,” stated Icaro Moreno Junior, president of the Rio de Janeiro State Public Construction Company, which rebuilt the stadium.

 

The stadium in Brasilia may be the first to achieve LEED Platinum status, the highest status awarded by the Green Building Council. Its rooftop features a 2.2 megawatt photovoltaic array. All the materials from the former stadium were collected and reused on and off-site. The stadium also stores rainwater in five tanks, where it is filtered and treated to be reused in the toilets and for irrigating the pitch, according to Brazil’s World Cup site. 

In the coming months more of the solar-powered stadiums will come online as Brazil attempts to hold the most sustainble World Cup to date.

Article on facilitating membership at fitness clubs.

 

Brad Rebello's curator insight, October 8, 2014 10:27 PM

      The important thing I learned in this article is that it's essential to get a customer interested in your business. You want them to be a member of your facility as soon as they walk through the front door.  The first thing you should do is show them around. You don't want to waste any time making small talk because they will get uninterested and waste their time. Get right to business and be aggressive. Introducing them to one of the professionals or staff who work in that area is a good strategy to grab the customers attention. By providing a strong introduction including a tour, how they will use the facility, and answering questions,  you will have persuaded them to become a member of your business. I also learned that you should follow up with your customer if they have joined or decided not to. Here, you can ask them how they found about your business so you can set up more advertisements. On the other hand, you can find out why they didn't chose to be a member of your business. You can use their reason to improve your facility and what you offer.

           What I found interesting is that you should not ask for feedback on a numerical scale of 1-10.  Most people are not interested in this part and just want to look for thorough reviews. Getting this type of response can change your sales, program, and business for the better. Another thing I found interesting is that the most important person in the business is the front desk person. They should be knowledgeable and friendly in order to make as many sales as they can. They have to be willing to like people and help them out.

          I chose this article because it provides insight on how to attract and keep customers in your business. It provides the ethics of what you should do and what you should not do.  In a business, your success depends on your customer support and this article explains how you can achieve that in the quickest way possible. This will help in the sport management industry because it teaches me how to interact with others and how to improve your facility. Using these strategies of leadership, communication, and being there to support your customers, you will have put together a successful business.

Cameron Brochu's curator insight, October 14, 2014 5:05 PM

1. I learned different ways to get people to buy a membership to your sports facility. Important things like no negotiating and following up are very important. Making the member feel comfortable and have them return to your facility is important. 

 

2. I found It interesting that you shouldn't give future members a tour because most costumers feels like it waste time. I also found it interesting that negotiating is not ht e right thing to do. A customer makes his or her decision fast and the sports facility manger needs to do the same. 

 

3. I selected this article because one day I would like to own or work in a sports facility and organize different leagues and games. I picked this article to I've me an insight on how to sell memberships to customers and the different strategies I can use. 

 

4. This information will help me in the sports industry because it gives me helpful tips and approaches to use when trying to sell something to a customer without feeling like you are being too pushy and annoying.

Acquisti & Sostenibilità not-for-profit's curator insight, March 23, 2013 2:38 PM

In June 2009 MetLife Stadium signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, with the intention of improving the facility’s environmental sustainability and becoming a steward of green operation. The EPA released its annual assessment of the stadium’s progress toward that goal this week, and the data showcases significant gains at the home of the New York Giants and New York Jets.

The analysis shows that MetLife Stadium has reduced its carbon footprint by the equivalent of over 234,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide, saving the facility nearly $20 million in operating costs in just under four years of action. The reductions are equivalent to the annual emission of over 48,000 vehicles or the annual energy use in more than 12,000 homes.

These gains were largely the result of several initiatives put into place at MetLife Stadium. The most recognizable step was the installation of a solar-energy ring around the top of the stadium to mitigate the energy usage at the venue, which went online in August 2012. But the biggest gains came from an aggressive energy-conservation program at the stadium that reduced energy use by 20% from the opening baselines.

The EPA also noted the efforts by MetLife Stadium to expand green purchasing decisions, sustainable landscaping, increases in recycling and composting, and water conservation through low-flow installations and waterless urinals. As host of the 2014 Super Bowl, MetLife Stadium has quantitatively shown progress toward its stated mission to host the greenest championship game to date.

MetLife Stadium is leading the way in their efforts to be green. This is a great article to read.

Monique Tester's curator insight, April 26, 2014 11:58 AM

Not only is the MetLife Stadium an ecofriendly stadium but is the only stadium out of all the NFL stadiums to receive no public funding including construction upgrades/improvements.
