Last Friday, February 7, the Road, Channel and Port Engineers Association of Madrid presented its XII Annual Awards 2019 to more than 600 guests, including numerous institutional representatives and top leaders of construction and engineering companies, at a gala held in the Crystal Gallery of the Cibeles Palace.
The prize in the “Best Public Project” category was awarded to the “Wanda Metropolitano Stadium Environment”, an area of action that covers an area of more than 1,200,000 square meters in which the jury has highlighted “its environmental sustainability”. Hidrostank supplied its HIDROBOX infiltration boxes, enabling sustainable urban drainage management (SUDS).
The winning work has increased the provision of green spaces and infrastructure of the San Blas-Canillejas District, integrating the new Atlético de Madrid stadium into an accessible environment. The president of the club, Enrique Cerezo, has collected the prize in the company of the delegate of Works and Spaces of the City Council, Paloma García Romero, and representatives of FCC and IGB Ingeniería.
HIDROSTANK SUPPLIED ITS HIDROBOX ATTENUATION CRATES IN THE NEW ATLETICO DE MADRID STADIUM
In 2017 HIDROSTANK supplied its HIDROBOX attenuation crates in the urbanization works of Wanda Metropilitano, the new Atletico Madrid stadium, which was built by FCC. The inauguration was that September 16th.
Previosly the Madrid City Council, the Ministry of Development and Atletico Madrid signed an agreement for the urbanization of the old stadium of La Peineta, construction of the necessary access infrastructures and 4,209 parking places in the interior of the Wanda Metropolitan precinct. The connections of the new enclosure with the M-40 ring road would be executed in two phases: the first one was essential to be able to carry out the opening of the stadium. The second would be held later, after the inauguration.
HIDROSTANK collaborated closely with both the technicians of the Project management and the awarded contractor in the definition of the solution finally adopted: drainage trenches made of HIDROBOX inspectable crates, which enable a sustainable drainage of the urbanization.
The modularity and ease of assembly of the HIDROBOX infiltration boxes, certified by Bureau Veritas, enabled a very fast installation to reach the very demanding delivery times.
