After the completion of the construction of a massive building that will house an indoor stadium, the next that is being undertaken is the required interior infrastructure. The indoor stadium has a plinth area of 3,600 square meters with 1,500-capacity gallery, a series of long-shadow lights all around, adequate restrooms for all the players, an office room and room that is designed for coaches.
The indoor stadium is expected to cost an estimated Rs.15crore with state-of-the-art facilities for various events that include badminton, ball badminton, table tennis, gymnasium and physiotherapy unit. The design was made by Indian Institute of Technology that has made sure that the stadium is at par with international standards.
The indoor stadium was started in 2007 but the work only gained momentum 2 years ago because of a new proposal for the construction of an open stadium outside the indoor stadium for an estimated of Rs.8.95crore. The outdoor stadium will have a 400-meter track, a gallery for 3,000 persons, a hockey court, basketball court, football court and volleyball court.
One aspect of the indoor stadium that is being given attention is the flooring. According to officials if the quality of wood used for flooring is compromised it can lead to knee pain among the athletes. This is the reason why they imported Maplewood from California to be used in the 3,000 square meters flooring. Logs of wood will be fitted into rows and columns before they are nailed together to prevent any knee injuries.
In order to ensure an interrupted power supply particularly when there are games, a transformer and generator will be set up as standby arrangement. A false ceiling is another feature as an aesthetic element of the building. If you have never heard of false ceilings, they are also called suspended ceilings or dropped ceilings that are hung below the main ceiling as a secondary structure. Suspended ceilings have become a trend in modern architecture and design of buildings because they can hide elements of a building infrastructure like pipes, wires and ductwork. Suspended ceilings from Crisp Contracts Ltd. are generally preferred because they make repairs and maintenance easier and more convenient.
