Building Information Modeling/ Virtual Design & Construction
Partille, near Gothenburg, is growing fast. Here, we are building Sweden’s first multifunctional arena, a flexible facility that can be quickly rearranged to house a handball match during the day and host a music concert in the evening. With seating for 4,000 spectators, Partille Arena will be a medium-sized facility, and a significant complement to the giant Scandinavium and Ullevi arenas.
The arena will be the home ground for the successful handball club, IK Sävehov, but the municipality has made it clear that the facility is for everyone. To symbolize this, 500 six-year-olds turned the first sod in December 2013. The facility will be used for school sports, sports associations and concerts. This will also be a site for restaurants, bowling, gymnastics, workshops for operating personnel, conference premises and offices.
Partille Arena lies in the heart of Partille Port, the new city section emerging in the center of the municipality. We are building a new rendezvous point for the Partille population on an old industrial site, a continually pulsating center in Partille.
The project entails a number of tricky challenges for which we have favorable solutions. The transport of hazardous goods is conducted on the nearby Europa 20 highway (E20), which means that we must dimension the building to deal with explosions. We are building a curved wall towards the E20, which is partly constructed on site. The roof has a double covering nearest the highway.
The arena must also be able to withstand vibrations from “bouncy” spectators on the field. We conducted a dynamic analysis, leading us to select point-bearing concrete piles down to the foundation.
Various activities will be held simultaneously without them disturbing each other. Moreover, it must be possible to adjust a hall during a day to suit sporting and musical events of the same magnitude. This imposes demands on the design of the building.
Cooperative spirit is very special for the project: all the players involved feel proud in being involved in creating this arena. The municipality, the property company, sub-contractors and Skanska are working closely together to gain optimal solutions. Many competencies within Skanska are involved, since it is a major project imposing unique requirements.
The arena will be completed in June 2016, and the first event is planned to be held a few months later.

Partille Arena is designed to be used by all the municipality’s inhabitants. The arena will be used by school, association and elite sports in the 18,700 square-meter area. In addition to training sessions and matches, this will also be the site for concerts and other cultural events. In December 2013, 500 six-year-olds turned the first sod in order to symbolize that the arena is a meeting place for everyone in Partille.
“There was rain and generally pretty bad weather, but the six-year olds were expectant and patient. I was impressed by the order and discipline surrounding the occasion. All of them stood and waited for the starting shot. When that came, they started digging so intensively that sand was thrown up everywhere.” says Jonas Jonsson, Project Manager at Skanska.
Skanska continuously focuses on a safe work environment. Jonas explains how safety programs have also resulted in other positive effects:
“The most important factor is worker safety. We don’t want any workplace accidents. But now we’re also beginning to see other positive effects of safety work. Our efforts in the areas of work preparation and risk inventory offer more efficient work methods and superior planning. So, apart from the fact people that do not get injured, they also offer a financial reward.”
The project is a green workplace, which is our proprietary environment labeling designed to reduce environmental impact during the building process. For example, we recycle at least 95 percent of waste, have fast-flow faucets and use work vehicles in an economic manner.
In October 2013, project engineering began for the Partille Arena and in December of the same year, 500 six-year-olds turned the first sod. Their enthusiasm mirrors the project: All those involved in the Partille Arena feel that this is a type of project that one is involved with just once in a lifetime.
Skanska won the assignment through a public tender, thanks to a cost-conscious proposal that met all functionality requirements. The project is a design-build contract, and the ordering party is Partillebo, the municipality’s property company. Many competencies within Skanska are involved as a result of the facility’s size and complexity.
In January 2014, we began to decontaminate the old industrial site. Luckily, the ground was less contaminated than expected, permitting us to move rapidly on to site preparation work.
An arena must cope with vibrations from bouncy spectators. We conducted a detailed dynamic analysis and elected to use point-bearing concrete piles. The upper part of he ground is clay, which is common in the Gothenburg area. After this, there is non-cohesive soil consisting of stone or gravel, and then furthest down there is rock. We set the piles in the non-cohesive soil so that they form a firm foundation for the arena.
But it isn’t just the arena that is significant in terms of vibrations. The houses built nearby may be built in a manner that reinforces or dampens the vibrations from the arena. This is a matter of the rigidity of the building. We have calculated various data that present builders with the conditions to ensure that they can construct buildings in the correct manner.
The next step is to lay a concrete base. Subsequently, we will build the carcass. The nearby E20 highway imposes certain requirements in respect of the carcass. This highway is used to transport hazardous goods, such as petroleum and diesel. We have dimensioned the building to cope with any explosion.
“The building reflects a special design, like a loaf of bread. The section that faces the highway is a concrete wall that then transforms into an arch-shaped roof. We’ve designed the walls and roof to ensure that they can cope with an explosion,” says Jonas Jonsson, Project Manager.
The required flexibility of the building was a test for the designers. All the operations in the building impose different requirements in terms of design, sound, ventilation and lighting. The requirements are quite frequently conflicting, so you have to find the optimal solution. A concert may be held in the main auditorium, while people sit and work in the office section. An important bowling match and handball training must never disturb each other.
An arena requires a great deal of electrical installations. Apart from audio-video, there is also the matter of fire alarms and burglar alarms. Everything must function in the optimal manner.
We’ve worked closely with architects and subcontractors to find optimal solutions. All parties are encouraged to express their opinions at an early stage so that we can gain from their experience.
Flexibility is not only about activities in various halls not interrupting each other. It also involves the capacity to convert rapidly a space from one event to another. During the day, people can watch a Sävehof game; subsequently, on the same day, the seating is removed and placed in front of the stage for a performance by “Kulturskolan” (Culture Academy). This has created an affinity between the spectators and performing artists.
The arena is expected to be complete in July 2016. The Partille population will gain access to their new rendezvous, a living arena and a landmark in this expanding municipality.
