FSD has designed and planned the fire protection systems with regard to evacuation safety at the Swedbank Stadium in Malmö, Malmö FF’s new home ground, with a 110x70 m natural grass pitch and room for slightly more than 24,000 visitors at sporting events. The building also has a restaurant which can accommodate 2,200 guests, as well as office space. The stadium can also be used for outdoor concerts and stage shows; there is then room for approximately 39,000 visitors.
In order to achieve a cost-effective fire-resistant solution corresponding to PEAB’s expectations in this project, FSD chose an analytical approach. An analytical approach involves fire-resistant solutions being verified with the help of evacuation calculations and fire propagation simulations, areas that FSD has considerable knowledge of and capacity within.
Even for the Swedbank Stadium, FSD created a complete solution with regard to the load-bearing function in a fire together with steel suppliers as part of the analytical planning. This meant that most of the supporting structure was optimized in order to meet the prevailing requirements without additional fire protection.
