Caverion chosen for Red Bull Arena expansion

Operators of the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig, Germany have picked Caverion to provide building technology solutions for the modernisation and expansion project at the football stadium.

Caverion will be responsible for cooling, ventilation and air conditioning as well as heating and sanitation solutions at the arena, which is home to Bundesliga club RB Leipzig.

From the 2021/2022 season on, 48,000 spectators instead of the previous 43,000 will be able to watch the matches at the Red Bull Arena.

To this end, part of the seating area will be converted to standing while some other areas are being expanded and newly built.

Marcus Schmietzky, responsible for technical building services at Red Bull Besitzergesellschaft said:

Caverion has its own branch office in Leipzig, just a few kilometers from the Arena. The short distance, and more importantly, a local contact person familiar with the local conditions are important for us as a customer.

Frank Krause, executive vice president, Caverion Germany, added:

We are proud to take part in the modernisation of the football stadium. Once completed, the Red Bull Arena will offer even more optimal conditions for football fans and concert audiences.
