Malmö Arena

Project: New arena

Our delivery: 2008

  • Roof structure
  • External facades
Multi-purpose arena for sports and culture

The roof structure consists of trusses that span 92 metres and measure eight metres in height. In addition to their own weight and snow loads, the trusses can carry 100 tons or 160 tons on top of the main stage of extra weight. No other European arena boasts such a capacity.

A 27-metre tall, stunning structure constitutes the facade of the building. It is characterised by the main elements of glass and dark, shiny metal.

Ruukki is one of few Nordic companies capable of delivering a structure of this magnitude. Due to its size, the requirements for durability, load-bearing capacity and logistics were extremely high.
