Modular Stadium and Stadium Expansions
NUSSLI offers complete, modularly constructed grandstands - with or without roofing - for rent or purchase. Other options include hire-purchase or leasing models. Modular grandstand systems and stadium constructions are much sought after - as temporary or permanent solutions. Many football clubs have long since adopted the NUSSLI concept. A great advantage here is the fast response and installation times - but also the competitive prices are an important factor for clubs and organizational committees. And that all modular grandstand solutions are tailor-made to suit client requirements is a matter of course. NUSSLI offers customized integrated products and services for stadium construction and stadium expansion - from the initial planning to contruction and later removal.
NUSSLI Relies on Steel Tube Grandstands
Modular stadium construction is a topic that makes a lot of football clubs sit up and listen. More often than not, clubs will only know around the end of May of each year, in which league they will be playing during the coming season. With only a few weeks to spare, FA requirements must be satisfied and additional capacities provided.
Some clubs have already begun using steel tube-based grandstands in order to save costs. The first of these was Vfl Wolfsburg. During the mid-1990ies, the success of the club based in the hometown of VW in Lower Saxony grew faster than the stadium's infrastructure could follow. A fast increase in seating capacity was necessary to meet the requirements of the German Football Association (DFB). The construction of a traditional concrete grandstand was simply not feasible within the available time. The solution here was a steel tube-based grandstand, which was used for the first time at the Vfl stadium on Elsterweg. Many more clubs followed in the footsteps of Wolfsburg: Energie Cottbus, Mainz 05, TuS Koblenz, St. Pauli, Carl Zeiss Jena, Hannover 96, SV Sandhausen and Wacker Burghausen. They all put their trust in the steel tube-based grandstand constructions by NUSSLI. Even entire arenas - like the home grounds of SV Wehen-Wiesbaden - could now be completed as modular constructions in just four months.
