Penetron project: South Africa - Green Point Stadium – 2010 World Cup Stadium, Cape Town


Located in Cape Town's central Green Point district, a stone-throw away from Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Green Point Stadium is scheduled to host five first round matches, one second round, one quarter-final and one semi-final in the 2010 Soccer World Cup in South Africa. Once the transformation is completed, Green Point Stadium – also known as the African Renaissance Stadium – will be an all-weather, multi-purpose, environmentally sustainable, modern, technologically advanced, world class stadium holding 70.000 people complying completely with FIFATM Match Stadium requirements. This 287 million USD project was created by GMP Architects, Louis Karol Architects and Point Architects and consists of five levels and the roof, including sport team rooms, VIP reception, parking levels, media areas, FIFATM offices, fan shops, business club, a multi-purpose hall, security and police offices, kitchens and VIP lounges.

In order to effectively protect and waterproof the concrete of the seating stands Penetron Admix was selected to treat the stitching between the precast seating. Therefore a total of 1100m3 of concrete treated with Penetron Admix was poured on this project site of national importance to the country.
