Rio de Janeiro Special

2016 Olympic Games Venues Take Shape - page 2 of 4


Barra Olympic Park takes shape

Barra Olympic Park takes shapeAfter earthworks and installation of underground infrastructure, venues that will host more than 20 sports are starting to take shape.

As the earthworks, foundation construction and installation of underground infrastructure – such as water, gas, electricity and drainage networks – draw to a close, the first structures are beginning to take shape.

Alexandre Techima, Rio 2016’s Infrastructure Integration Director said:

All the venue foundation works have been started and the constructors are meeting the scheduled targets. The construction will become more visible as the metal structures of the floor levels and roofs are mounted, as is the case with the IBC, where this is already happening, and Olympic Halls 1, 2 and 3, where this will begin in August.

Work on the foundations and pillars of the three Olympic Halls, which will form part of the Olympic Training Centre after the Games, are in the final phase, with the walls and first levels of the third hall already under construction.

Inside the Rio 2016 Olympic Park, work is taking place on many different structures. Some are more advanced than othersInside the Rio 2016 Olympic Park, work is taking place on many different structures. Some are more advanced than others.

At the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) site, where the foundation works and stake and block installation are in the final phases, work has begun on concreting the first floor and mounting the metallic structure of the second floor.

At the Main Media Centre (MPC) site, containment work has been finished and foundations are close to completion.
