Aréna Plaza

The Arena Plaza shopping and entertainment center opened in 2007 on Kerepesi Street, on the site of the former rowing club, under the development of Plaza Centers. The construction of the middle third of the building, which is almost 500 meters long, was carried out by our company, meeting a tight deadline. The special feature of the project was the three glass chimneys above the atrium, which provide the lighting for the central spaces. These three ring-shaped chimneys were built on reinforced concrete pillars of considerable size, in an elliptical shape, with an unconventional inclined plane and a large cross-section. Because of the inclination, we had to cope with lateral concrete pressure, and therefore we used continuous geodetic surveying to monitor the possible displacement of the structure.
