Nice Stadium: A real model of eco-design and eco-construction
Nice hopes to impose the future stadium as a model of integration and sustainable development within the French Riviera Eco-Valley
Nice Stadium will be located in the Plaine du Var, in the Côte d’Azur Eco-Valley l’Eco-Vallée de la Côte d'Azur. Locating the stadium in the heart of the first ‘Project of National Interest (OIN) devoted to sustainable development,’ 1ère Opération d’Intérêt National dédiée au développement durable, demonstrates a commitment to make its construction a model of sustainable development.
A real model of eco-design and eco-construction modèle d’éco-conception et d’éco construction, using innovative technologies which will help make Olympic Nice Stadium one of the very first Eco-Stadiums in the world:
- Thanks to its rounded shape and the architectural and technical measures which are planned, the scheme will be perfectly integrated into its surroundings, the Saint-Isidore district, and the future eco-area.
- The project consists of:
- The multifunctional stadium itself, with retractable stands on the north and south sides, giving greater versatility and allowing spectators to be closer to the pitch during football matches.
- Musée National du Sport (3,000 m² of exhibition space spread over several levels)
- A supporting commercial and activity centre of 29,000 m² located at the base of the stadium.
- Underground car parks facilitating efficient operation and ensuring a better integration into the surroundings by the creation, in particular, of a park of around 3ha in area
- A very large three-dimensional wooden structure which will cover all the terraces, (allowing 3000 tons of carbon emissions to be saved compared with a classic structure)
- A unique arrangement of natural air-conditioning (by setting up a fan wall system which will allow the stadium to be cooled by using the prevailing winds of the Plaine du Var).
- Roofing with a translucent membrane which will protect all the terraces and at the same time diffuse natural light while avoiding a ‘glare’ effect. In addition, the stadium will shine at night.
- A true solar factory with a total installation of 16,000 m² of photovoltaic panels allowing the stadium to produce more energy than it consumes.
- Rainwater recovery (7,000 m3 collected each year) and gravity flow water supply, thus limiting water consumption
- As an objective, recycling 40% of the building site rubbish
- A building site which will have considerable local economic consequences (500 jobs envisaged on the site, more than 40% sub-contracted to PME, small and medium sized local companies...)
Accessibility for spectators and parking around the stadium
Preference will be given to public transport thanks to dedicated transport corridors integrated into the 40-metre wide road linking Nice Méridia to Saint Isidore. Spectators can also use the train service from Lingostière station.
As far as parking is concerned, Nice Stadium will have 1,450 underground parking spaces and 400 spaces above ground. Besides, parking areas will be made at Nikaïa, with a bus shuttle service to the stadium.
