Ghelamco Arena

The challenge

The challenge was to make the multifunctional walkways under the stands, with an overall area exceeding 10,000 m², fire safe. To achieve the safety level prescribed by the Belgian authorities, we proposed a combination of safety measures. The walkways can accommodate 20,000 supporters who can make use of the many facilities.


A smart combination of safety measures allows a high level of safety to be achieved in a cost-efficient manner. In addition, the systems that had already been implemented (ducting, compartmentalisation, etc.) were used to develop a holistic fire safety concept without obstacles to daily use.
