A premiership performance by Tata Steel at Liberty Stadium

26 April 2013 No Comment

Is colour important when it comes to a sports ground? This shining stadium in Swansea is a bright example of how crucial shade and tone is when planning such a prestigious development.

Liberty Stadium is the home of Swansea City Football Club and regional rugby union team the Ospreys. Its distinctive bowl design was created by TTH Architects, one of the leading practices in modern stadia design. But finding the right exterior cladding was crucial to the project reaching its goal.

Tata Steel is Swansea’s man of the match

The material not only had to be durable, but had to be flexible enough to adapt to the gently curved shape. It also had to meet a specific colour scheme the architects and planning department had in mind.

Step forward Tata Steel, whose Colorcoat HPS200® Ultra pre-finished steel was the perfect signing for the team. Working together with contractors Allmass Cladding Systems, Tata Steel Colors and Tata Steel Panels & Profiles ensured that the right solution was found to meet the demands of the project.
