Philippine Arena - World's Largest Domed Arena

Post by R1616 on Sun Aug 21, 2011 11:21 pm

Korean builder strives to become one of the world’s 100 largest construction firms








Hanwha Engineering and Construction Corp. began work on the world’s largest domed arena in the Philippines on Thursday.

The work for the $175 million contract, signed on Aug. 4, got underway in a ceremony attended by Hanwha E&C officials including vice chairman Kim Hyun-chung and those from the Filipino Christian organization Iglesia Ni Cristo that issued the contract.

The facility located near Manila, named the Philippine Arena, will be fitted with 50,000 seats and its domed roof will be nearly 36,000 square meters, making it the world’s largest domed arena, the company said.

Hanwha E&C said that the work will be carried out over 30 months to be finished early 2014.

“By winning this contract for building the world’s largest dome arena, the company was able to prove its technological capabilities and the ability to carry out overseas projects,” Kim said in a statement. The company said that in the biddings for the contract, it competed with China’s Jiangsu International and the Philippines’ largest construction company EEI Corp. The project will be conducted in design-build process in which the contractor is responsible for all related processes from designing to building the facility, the company said.

Biggest sports dome not for profit
By Manolo R. Iñigo
Philippine Daily Inquirer

My exclusive report last June 10 on the proposed plan to build the world’s biggest sports dome in the Philippines has been confirmed by no less than a top official of the construction firm in charge of the multi-billion peso project.

Hanwha Engineering and Construction Corp. vice chair Kim Hyun-Chung recently announced that his company won the contract to build the 52-hectare multipurpose project located in barangay Duhat, Bocaue, Bulacan.

Aptly called The Philippine Arena, the estimated cost of completing the world-class project would be a staggering $175 million (roughly P8 billion). The modern complex is being built under the auspices of the Filipino Christian organization of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC).
Said Kim: “By winning this contract for the building the world’s largest dome arena, our company was able to prove its technological capabilities and the ability to carry out overseas projects.”
Hanwha would be constructing the record-setting project in partnership with Populous led by noted structural design consultant Andrew James and Buro Happold headed by design director Chris Sparrow.

If constructed as planned, the 50,000 to 55,000-seat Philippine Arena would be twice as large as the fabled Araneta Coliseum (now the Smart Araneta Coiseum) in Cubao which could sit 25,000. Also known as the Big Dome, the Araneta Coliseum was once widely accepted as the world’s biggest indoor sports venue when it was constructed way back in 1960.
When The Arena is finished, it would be bigger than some of the world’s biggest like New York City’s Madison Square Garden (20,000), Los Angeles’ Staples Center, which is home to multi-NBA champion team LA Lakers (21,000); and the O2 Arena in London (20,000).
The Philippine Arena owners have given the contractors to wind up the project by 2014, in time for the centennial celebration in July of the Iglesia ni Cristo, which commands tremendous followers not only here but also with members from around the world.
“The Arena,” stressed my source, “is being built not to make a profit. In fact, it is not even commercialized nor aimed at making money.”

On the contrary, the complex aims to establish itself as a wholesome gathering place for people and an entertainment venue for the whole family, serving as a venue for religious, cultural and sporting events. Besides, my source said, the Philippine Arena could help boost the country’s tourism industry.

Several prefabricated materials of international standards are being used in the construction of the complex, which includes a hospital and a university.

Construction has commenced on the world’s largest indoor arena in Manila, Philippines, designed by the Populous.

The ground breaking ceremony was held last week for the 50,000 seat indoor stadium at Ciudad de Victoria.

With a construction value of AUD $200M, the arena has been commissioned by the Philippine religion, Iglesia Ni Cristo (the Church of Christ) and will be complete in time for the Church’s Centennial Celebration in 2014.




Populous has designed the arena with engineers Buro Happold, and construction will be carried out by Hanwha Engineering and Construction Corp.

Project Director, Populous senior principal Andrew James, said:“The building’s capacity pushes the boundary of Arena design and will eventually establish itself as the world’s largest indoor arena. The form uses simple geometry to create an elegant appearance, while also giving the venue a powerful presence within its setting.”



The arena has been master planned to enable a further 50,000 people to gather at a “live site” outside the arena, to share in major events.

While the arena will hold major church gatherings, it will also operate as a multi-use sports and concert venue, capable of holding a range of events, from boxing and basketball, to live music performances.

Building Bigger: World's Largest Indoor Arena Set for the Philippines
By: TIM NEWCOMB



Bigger may or may not be better, but it sure does get you some attention, especially in the world of buildings.

Populous, a Kansas City-based global mega-architecture firm, has announced that construction already has kicked off on their design (completed in the firm's Brisbane, Australia, office) of what will be the “world's largest indoor arena” in the Philippines.

The 50,000-seat stadium in Manila, at Ciudad de Victoria, valued at about $213 million, signifies the doings of Iglesia Ni Cristo (the Church of Christ), with plans to have the massive structure ready for the Philippine church's centennial celebration in 2014.

Andrew James, Populous senior principal and project director, says the building's form “uses simple geometry to create an elegant appearance.” Big and elegant? This must be a masterpiece.

Whether or not the structure lives up to the public relations billing, the church plans to use the arena for church-related activities, sports and concerts and can host an additional 50,000 folks outside the arena.

Plus, you have to give the Philippine church some credit: The group at least has tried to do something innovative and different. And with 50,000 seats, you too can likely have a chance to visit a worldwide first.

Iglesia ni Cristo building massive indoor arena
Agence France-Presse

MANILA, Philippines—Politically influential Iglesia ni Cristo said Thursday it had started building one of the world’s biggest indoor arenas with a seating capacity of 50,000.

The 74,000-square-meter (796,000-square-feet) mega-structure called the Philippine Arena is part of the Christian sect’s Ciudad de Victoria, a sprawling complex being built just outside the capital Manila.

“It is going to be twice the size of the biggest indoor arena in the United States,” the church said in a story broadcast on its own television station and filmed during the project’s ground-breaking ceremony last month.

In comparison, it said, the Madison Square Garden in New York could only sit 20,000 people, while the Staples Center in Los Angeles has a capacity of 21,000.

Designed by Kansas City-based architecture firm Populous, construction is being carried out by South Korea’s Hanwha Engineering and Construction Corp. and is expected to be completed by 2014 to mark the church’s centenary.
The church said it planned to use the arena for religious gatherings.

The complex around it will include a university, a convention center, a medical facility, housing units and a chapel.
The arena itself will cost $175 million, although the bill for the entire project was not revealed.
Founded in 1914 by Filipino Felix Manalo, who left the Catholic church over differences in beliefs, the sect has grown to become one of Asia’s biggest indigenous Christian organizations.

It does not disclose the exact number of its membership, but it claims to have millions of followers,
It runs its own television and radio station, and because its members vote as a bloc, aspiring politicians scramble to get the approval of its ministers during elections.

World's largest indoor arena to rise in Philippines

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED/CORRECTED) - The world's largest indoor arena will rise in the Philippines soon, courtesy of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC), TIME.com reported Thursday.

Design of the 50,000-seat stadium at Ciudad de Victoria in Bulacan province has already started, according to Populous, a US architectural company firm behind the project.

The $213-million facility, dubbed by Populous as the "world's largest indoor arena," will be built in time for the Iglesia ni Cristo's centennial celebration in 2014, according to the architectural firm.

The building's form "uses simple geometry to create an elegant appearance," said Andrew James, Populous senior principal and project director.

The Iglesia ni Cristo plans to use the arena for church-related activities, sports, and concerts.

It can also host an additional 50,000 people outside the main ground.

"You have to give the Philippine church some credit: The group at least has tried to do something innovative and different. And with 50,000 seats, you too can likely have a chance to visit a worldwide first," TIME.com said.
