Aviva stadium

Country: Ireland
Type: Sports stadium

The Aviva Stadium is built on the site of the former Lansdowne Road stadium, which was demolished in 2007.  The stadium, located adjacent to Lansdowne Road railway station, officially opened on 14 May 2010.

All the concrete from the old stadium's frame was crushed after demolition and used to fill the site as hard standing.  Crushing the old concrete increases its surface area and allows it to absorb increased amounts of CO2.  Studies have shown that over 50kg of CO2 can be absorbed per cubic metre.

The stadium is 47.65 metres tall, 189.9 meters long and 203 meters wide.  It has a total capacity of over 50 000 places, and includes 3 restaurants and 69 kiosks/bars.
