Stožice Sports Park - Project - Construction


The construction of the sports complex started in June 2009 on a site already prepared for construction and was finished in only 14 months. At first the sports complex was scheduled for completion around June 2010, but after short delays of the project it was not until August 2010 that both the stadium and the arena were opened. Before completion the project caused a lot of controversy as lack of money became a huge problem for the contractors and its smaller subcontractors, one of which even committed suicide and some others declared bankruptcy. As the whole project is said to have been a public-private partnership the decision of a group of domestic banks in all of which Republic of Slovenia is a partial or major owner, to approve a credit of 115 million euros gained lot of media attention and plenty of political disputes. The shopping center below the ground of the park is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion in 2011. In the park above cycling and running tracks, skateboard park, child playground, picnic area etc. are planned to be added. Underground parking garage is also planned and will have space for around 4,000 cars. When finished the whole complex will measured around 182,000 square meters.

Famous quotes containing the word construction:

    The construction of life is at present in the power of facts far more than convictions.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)

    There’s no art
    To find the mind’s construction in the face:
    He was a gentleman on whom I built
    An absolute trust.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    There is, I think, no point in the philosophy of progressive education which is sounder than its emphasis upon the importance of the participation of the learner in the formation of the purposes which direct his activities in the learning process, just as there is no defect in traditional education greater than its failure to secure the active cooperation of the pupil in construction of the purposes involved in his studying.
    John Dewey (1859–1952)
