Al Rayyan’s location on the edge of the desert has shaped a resourceful
city that does not tolerate waste. So from its very conception, Al Rayyan
Stadium project has had sustainability at its core, backed by the commitment of
the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) to green building.
Turning old into new
Many of the materials from the deconstructed Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium that
once occupied this site will be used throughout the stadium complex, and some
will even find a place in public art
installations. Trees that once surrounded the old venue
have been kept in place, minimising damage to the natural environment.
Any new materials required for construction will be carefully chosen for their environmentally friendly qualities, and used in lightweight building designs.
Making, not taking energy
One of the new additions to the site will be a renewable energy
generation facility, which will not only help to power nearby amenities, but
also serve as a valuable example to stadium developers worldwide.
Energy and water efficiency measures will be put into place, and further reductions in the stadium’s carbon footprint will come as the metro connection being delivered by Qatar Rail is completed.
By the time Al Rayyan Stadium hosts its first 2022 FIFA World Cup™ match, football fans will be travelling via environmentally friendly metro to a self-powering, sustainable venue.
