Aviva Stadium, Dublin
The Aviva sports stadium has a capacity for 51,700 spectators and is built on the site of the former Lansdowne Road stadium. The North stand comprises one low level seating tier, to reflect its proximity to the residential properties at that end of the ground, as the Stadium is situated in a residential area of Dublin.
Designed to provide first-class facilities for spectators, players, media and backroom staff, behind the poly-carbonate façade, the nuts and bolts of the stadium had to comply with some strict ground rules. The contractor had to work towards the BS8901 certification of sustainable management for events and event venues. This is where Geberit stepped in, supplying its HDPE pipes throughout the stadium.
