The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium - Delhi

The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi, India, is a multipurpose sports arena hosting football and other sporting events, as well as large-scale entertainment events. It is named after the first Prime Minister of India. 

The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium was constructed by the Government of India to host the 9th Asian Games in 1982, following which it hosted the 1989 Asian Championships in Athletics and the2010 Commonwealth Games.

In preparation for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, the stadium reduced its capacity from 78,000 to 60,000 spectators.The all-seater facility seats 60,000 spectators, and up to 100,000 for concerts. In terms of seating capacity, it is the third largest multipurpose stadium in India and the 51st largest in the world.
Renovation For 2010 Commonwealth Games :

Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium hosted the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games Opening ceremony as well as the Closing ceremony.The stadium was given a new roof, improved seating, and other facilities to meet international standards as it hosts the athletic events and the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
  • The 53,800 m² Teflon-coated roof, designed by Schlaich Bergermann & Partner, was built at a cost of Rs. 308 crore.
  • Taiyo Membrane Corporation supplied and installed the PTFE glass fibre fabric roof.
  • 8,500 tonnes of steel were used in the construction of the stadium's roof and its support structure.
  • A new 10-lane synthetic track, synthetic warm-up track, and a synthetic lawn ball field were added.
  • Two new venues were constructed next to the stadium for the Games: four synthetic greens for the lawn bowls event and a 2,500-seat gymnasium for the weightlifting event. A 400-metre warm-up track was also constructed.
  • Nearly 4,000 labourers worked in double shifts to finish the stadium in time.
  • A 150m long tunnel was constructed for the opening and closing ceremonies.
  • The support structure for the new roof is similar to London's Olympic Stadium, which is under construction.
  • The design is similar to Foshan Stadium in China, built by the same designers.
  • 24 condom machines were installed by the Ministry of Health.
  • In case of emergency, the construction allows spectators to evacuate within 6 minutes.

  3. Why these Structure are Stamped in Indai...Any Reason

    1. Because Of This Reason Only...........The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi, India, is a multipurpose sports arena hosting football and other sporting events, as well as large-scale entertainment events. It is named after the first Prime Minister of India.

  4. How To design Cricket Stadium Any Difficulties there.?

    1. Cricket grandstands in temperate climates do not necessarily need canopies; but the construction of these are essential in hot tropical sunny countries. Cricket grandstands in hot countries need to be made in short lengths - 57m or even 43m - with gaps between them and ventilated at the sides and the rear. It should be possible to undertake the construction of 8×57m stands or 10×43m stands or a combination of both around a ground.
      In temperate climates cricket can be viewed from all round the perimeter, though the North and South ends are best for seeing the swing of the ball. In tropical countries, the North Stands and the South Stands will probably require the most construction and should be the most developed. This will ensure that spectators are sheltered from the sun all day, and never have the sun in their eyes. But all the grounds have these North and South stands ruined by sight screens. Here it is necessary to take advantage of the REIDsteel patent sloping, sliding sight screen (see Sightscreen).
      Because of the distance from the cricket stadia to the actual play area, it is a good thing to bring the stands as close as possible to the boundary. This may involve some compromises with viewing standards. REIDsteel can help make the best of these stadium viewing difficulties. Traditionally cricket stadia has often been built with forests of columns, and obstruction of the view has been taken for granted. But as in other sports there is no need for obstruction, or in the worst cases obstruction should be as little as possible. REIDsteel can design and build unobstructed grandstands for you. Because of the distance, and because of shortage of space, many grounds have two tier, or multi-tier grandstands, often built vertically, often with closely spaced and very large columns which ruin the view that the stand was built for.
      REIDsteel can help you with the design and construction of multi-tier grand stands with maximum clear views of the ground and minimum column obstructions. Grandstands on the East and West sides (at least) should have the minimum possible interference with sunlight. The sun travelling over the canopies produces shade, particularly from the west side in the closing overs. To face bowling at 90 miles per hour from a distance of 20 yards is dangerous enough and almost impossibly difficult; but if the cricket ball passes through alternate patches of sun and shade it appears and disappears as it hurtles towards the batsman. Cricket Stadia should never be designed to produce intermittent light and shade on the ground so no protruding posts, ballooning canopies and other architectural foolishness should stick out above the canopy. This should be forward sloping, as low as possible, and smooth. Designers of other side canopies should face Brett Lee one evening.
