La Défense Arena

The Défense Arena is a polyvalent structure owned by Racing Arena Group, originally conceived as a covered stadium for Racing 92 (15,175 spectators) that will be used in many other configurations for any type of shows (15,000 spectators). Incide Engineering carried out the structural design and managed the assembly of the temporary steel sroof supporting structures.
The activities required a very hard work of coordination with all enterprises in order to make possible the realisation of all lifting using one of the biggest Crawler Cranes in Europe; secondary lifting will be made also using internal/external mobile cranes and civil crane.
The main roof was lifted by one time lifting operation using 12 Strand jacks placed on the top of the roof.
