Lonas Lorenzo outlines its award-winning work on the Francisco Sánchez Rumoroso Stadium in Coquimbo, Chile

 

When the Francisco Sánchez Rumoroso Stadium in Coquimbo, Chile, wanted a stadium cover and wall for the 2008 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Championship, they turned to Lonas Lorenzo. The cover and wall, which were designed by Montealegre Architects, turned the stadium from a simple form into the symbol of a city.


Lonas Lorenzo was responsible for delivering the project. In the architect’s initial concept it was difficult for Lonas to differentiate the type of material to use for the cover. After extensive consultations and a form-finding process, the company decided to use tridimensional beams. These were then binded with an arc, creating a single membrane with a triple curvature, making the design of the stadium unique. Thanks to wind tunnel simulations, it was also possible to reduce the overall weight of the cover.


One major challenge the company faced during the project was the execution time. In just six months Lonas Lorenzo had to undertake many tasks, including engineering, the manufacture of the metallic structure, the preparation of the membrane and the complete installation. The structure was fabricated in Mexico and then shipped to Coquimbo.


Supervision was extremely important during the project. A group of technicians, engineers and architects oversaw the work. This guaranteed all tasks were completed correctly.


For its work on the Francisco Sánchez Rumoroso Stadium, Lonas Lorenzo was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award 2009 by the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI).
