The company VS-Trend from Bihac has been engaged in the construction of the Al Bayt stadium in the city of Al Khor, Qatar. The stadium will have a capacity of 60,000 seats, and it is constructed for the needs of the World Cup. It will be ready by the year of 2022, when the semi-final match will be played on it.
The value of this stadium amounts to 770 million EUR and it will be a competition to the most attractive stadiums in the world.
VS-Trend performs complete works on ventilation, installations and water flow at the stadium, i.e. everything that is required in order for the stadium to be functional.
“A total of 250 workers were engaged in this project, and there are about 200 employees on the construction site at the moment. They are workers from all over BiH,” said Sabahudin Blazevic, the director of this company.
The Al Bayt Stadium is announced as an object that will meet all the criteria of FIFA but it will also set new standards for energy sustainability and environmental protection. Thanks to the implementation of the newest GSAS and LEED standards, football matches will be played at moderate temperatures even during the strong summer heat.
Al Bayt is the first out of two stadiums where our workers will be engaged. Work on another stadium should be started in October. This was agreed during the Business Forum BiH – Qatar, which was held a few days ago in Doha.
“Negotiations regarding a job at the second stadium are in the final stages and we are expecting the works to start in the month of October,” said Blazevic, who was a member of the economic delegation of BiH at this forum.
The VS-Trend company is specialized in works on cruisers and it is among the top 10 companies in the entire world when it comes to that sector. This fact is confirmed by contracts signed with some of the world’s largest cruise lines, which include Carnival and Princess.
A total of 500 workers from this company are currently working on the construction sites all over the world. Besides Qatar, they are also working in the USA, Italy, Finland, Romania and Singapore.
