Frankfurter Waldstadion

Roof drainage, rainwater infiltration and re-use

Posted on 25 October 2011

Frankfurter Waldstadion

This stadium was renovated in 2005 to play host to the FIFA World championship Footbal. The stadion is outfitted with an innovative tented roof of over 25,000m2. In case of rainfall, Wavin’s siphonic roofdrainage system ensures that the 50,000+ seats as well as the field stay dry. In stead of being directed straight to the sewer system, Wavin also installed some 9,000 infiltration units (Aquacells) to collect and slowly infiltrate the water into the soil. The collected water can also be re-used.
