In many ways, today’s large stadiums have become modern shrines. However, the main sports function, for which most of them were designed, precludes any use or operation for alternative activities such as concerts, fairs, conventions or other sporting events.
How can we multiply the commercial use of these urban infrastructures? How can we optimize their functionality and put them at the service of citizens every day of the year?
This premise was what inspired our architects and engineers to develop a new stadium concept, equipped with the most advanced technology that allows the natural grass pitch to be removed quickly and safely in any stadium in the world, whether already built or yet to be built. This is how the retractable grass system arose that allows the natural grass pitch to be removed in a fully automated way.
The spectacular retractable grass system designed and patented by Sener was offered to Real Madrid Club to install it in the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, one of the most emblematic stadiums in the world.
The system, fully automated, moves the trays with the natural grass to an underground warehouse, called Hypogeum, equipped with ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, control and irrigation systems, that can set up ideal ambient conditions to preserve the grass.
Access for staff and landscaping materials is also facilitated for ideal continuous maintenance, regardless of the events that may be taking place in the stadium.
The system has a set of mechanisms that allow for the horizontal and vertical movements of the trays with the grass, thought up and designed by Sener in such a way that the maximum reliability of the system is always guaranteed, allowing the pitch to be removed quickly for the organisation of events.
“In many ways, stadiums have become modern shrines. However, the sports function, for which most of them were designed, precludes any use or operation for alternative activities.”
“At Sener, we have always believed that stadiums must be designed in such a way that their function transcends a mere sporting use.”
