Story in short:

The Tele2 Arena in Stockholm will be a world-class, flexible and modern arena for sports and events. Lindab has supplied 142 tonnes of sheet metal, 4,500 m lightweight beams and 8,100 m2 sandwich panels and high profiles to Liab Plåtbyggarna.

When we visited at the end of February, the TELE2 Arena is a boiling cauldron of craftsmen, who are all working frantically to ensure that the kick-off between Hammarby and Örgryte takes place as planned on 20 July this year (2013). “For us, it started with an enquiry from the main contractor, Peab, as to whether we had any ideas on how the exterior cladding on the edges of the floor structure could be executed,” says Anders Ericsson at Liab Plåtbyggarna. “Our suggestion of sandwich panels secured in lightweight beams turned out to be both simpler and cheaper than the original solution, and so that’s how it ended up. And as Lindab is our largest supplier, it was natural to select Lindab this time too.” at the end of February, the TELE2 Arena is a boiling cauldron of craftsmen, who are all working frantically to ensure that the kick-off between Hammarby and Örgryte takes place as planned on 20 July this year (2013). “For us, it started with an enquiry from the main contractor, Peab, as to whether we had any ideas on how the exterior cladding on the edges of the floor structure could be executed,” says Anders Ericsson at Liab Plåtbyggarna. “Our suggestion of sandwich panels secured in lightweight beams turned out to be both simpler and cheaper than the original solution, and so that’s how it ended up.

After this Liab won a number of further contracts at the arena – from constructing the Arena’s fan room, which is located high-up, to cladding the arena space, the fixed parts of the roof and other public areas etc. “We currently have 34 men on site,” Anders Ericsson continues, “and so far we have assembled, among other things, 142 tonnes of sheet-metal, 4,500 m lightweight beams and over 8,000 m2 of sandwich panels, high profiles and aluminium flooring – all from Lindab."
