Another stage of the works of the Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha has begun. This week, the installation of the pre-molded concrete parts that will form the upper bleachers began to be mounted.
The section will have the capacity of 39,050 people, more than half of the approximately 70,000 places of the federal capital’s new stadium.
The process of mass production of the pre-molded parts has been performed in a center at the construction site since December 2011.
About 20 workers are involved in the installation, which is performed by means of a crane that supports up to 650 tons. It is estimated that eight to ten pieces will be placed each day.
The manufacture of pre-molded parts is made in a center within the stadium construction site. Since December 2011, 1,083 out of the 1,604 pieces that will form the upper bleachers were produced. About 100 workers are working in the production of the parts.
Progress of work
At this time, Mané Garrincha’s work is one of the more advanced for the World Cup, with 56% of execution. The lower bleachers are done, the intermediate bleachers are 90% complete, and the upper bleachers, which are pre-molded, are with 73% of their material stored in the construction site.
In April, building (water pipes, sewer, electrical installation, telephone and fire fighting), telecommunication, and access control installations began. The execution of finishing such as masonry and floor has also started.
The columns over 36 meters tall and the terrace ring, with 300 meters in diameter, are being executed to receive the metal cover.
Approximately 3,600 workers works in three shifts. The delivery is expected in December of this year.
The Federal District government intends to deliver the stadium management to private sector. The process must be completed before the World Cup.
In addition to paying the rent for the arena, the winning company will be responsible for entering Brasília on a calendar of national and international concerts and events.
