Cost-effective and flexible sports buildings 

Veldeman design engineers have, over these many years, developed unique features to ensure that a superior playing environment is provided for performance sport, whatever the season. The company’s (semi-)permanent sports buildings feature a high quality PVC membrane tensioned over an aluminum or steel frame. The strengths of this system include rapid construction, low life cycle costs, flexibility of design and superior performance.  Thanks to the unique concept, a project can be realized on short term. The structures need no or only limited foundations and can be quickly erected over new or existing facilities. Veldeman solutions are perfectly scalable: their modular design allows for future extensions. Side walls can be readily removed thus creating a semi open atmosphere in summer whilst protecting against glare, rain and overheating. Playing comfort is thereby improved. Translucent roof and upper walls let in natural, uniform light and keep energy bills low. Veldeman halls can be used all year round, ensuring the return on investment. In general, these cost-effective, large span sports buildings cost approximately 40% less than traditional buildings.

Moreover, they can be easily dismantled and/or relocated if required.
