HOK sport architecture specified Kalzip standing seam on the 02 Dome using two types standard 65/400 sheets and the XT sheets which can be tapered, curved and twisted in 3D shapes - as well as bespoke flashings to clad the “back of bowl” or level four concourse which runs around the arena.
The 2,000m² of straight and tapered standard sheets which were installed by Lakesmere above, and in some places level with, the 700m² of XT sheets, had to be twisted to achieve HOK’s design above the level four concourse where the pitch changed by 22º over a length of approximately 45 metres.
