Tour of Green Point Stadium
Thanks to Cape Town Tourism, I had the amazing opportunity to be taken on a personal tour of Green Point Stadium It was awesome to view a super structure being constructed up close.
We were taken to the pitch and around the stadium by the structural engineer. Listening to the technical aspects of the construction really gave me a new respect for the architects, engineers and construction crew. Hats off to everyone involved with this project – wow!
Lots of activity on the pitch. Just imagine the sight when the turf is laid…
The roof is an architectural marvel with its special fabric resting on cabling and topped off with 22mm-thick laminated glass.
These guys obviously have nerves of steel.
Being an oval structure, every seat in this stadium is the best seat! Now we’re just waiting for 2010 to arrive.
