HOW TO BUILD A SUS­TAIN­ABLE STA­DIUM

THE AECOM WAY

The way to do this is by en­ergy use re­duc­tion, with re­duced en­ergy de­mand against in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised stan­dards; by in­cor­po­rat­ing re­new­able en­ergy tech­nol­ogy in­stal­la­tions, sup­ply­ing a per­cent­age of tour­na­ment en­ergy by on-site re­new­able sources and through wa­ter use re­duc­tion with re­duced potable wa­ter use through con­ser­va­tion and sub­sti­tu­tion mea­sures. The sta­dium de­sign should in­cor­po­rate a wide range of pas­sive and ac­tive car­bon re­duc­tion mea­sures, care­fully for­mu­lated to min­imise the car­bon emis­sions of the tour­na­ment. These should in­clude the use of pas­sive de­sign tech­niques, in­no­va­tive shad­ing tech­nolo­gies and air­flow de­liv­ery sys­tems. Com­puter sim­u­la­tion al­lows us to min­imise cool­ing loads. High-ef­fi­ciency plant and equip­ment, light­ing and con­trol strate­gies must also be in­cor­po­rated to fur­ther re­duce emis­sions, while high­ef­fi­ciency pho­to­voltaic ar­rays will de­liver clean en­ergy gen­er­a­tion
