A multipurpose arena for Düsseldorf
IDR was the project controller for the City of Düsseldorf in this construction project, which ran from 2002 to 2005 and involved the construction of the biggest individual building in the city: the LTU arena (today ESPRIT arena), a multipurpose arena for sport, culture, trade fairs and congresses. The arena was a mammoth project costing in the region of EUR 218 million. Today, it has 51,000 covered seats and 22 VIP boxes for nearly 300 guests. A gym, an extensive food court and a business club for corporate events that can cater to some 6,000 guests, plus a hotel with 280 rooms, round off the visitor facilities. The construction of the arena was completed on budget and within the agreed timeframe.
