The perfect material for 1,800 people

The new stadium, financed by the Canadian Simon Fraser University and its students, is designed to offer a completely new university experience. The stadium is home to the sports teams of this Richmond-based university and its refurbishment was intended to extend its capacity and improve the overall quality of the facilities. Athletes, students and the entire educational community can now enjoy new spaces thanks to a design that includes a new structure with a capacity for 1,800 people and a large roof with a contemporary design. In its construction, Perkins + Will Architects used two Dekton colours, Domoos and Spectra. Dekton was also used for the columns throughout the stadium, providing elegance and, at the same time, a number of technical advantages. The stadium is designed to be visited by thousands of people a year and to withstand the extreme weather conditions of the area, from the hottest summers to the coldest and wettest winters. For this reason, the Dekton surface was the perfect solution for this sports facility.

A new era for the campus

The new SFU Stadium is shaping up to be a key venue for campus life at the SFU, the only Canadian university competing in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Hence the importance of transforming this space into a first class venue to support the university athletes and teams that will train and compete there. The impact of this project, to which students contributed more than €8.5 million, results in a top quality sports facility. Facilities include a lobby, accessible toilets, media and broadcasting facilities, integrated sound system, VIP suite and coaches’ booths.
