On one of the largest building sites in Switzerland, the country's first ever multifunctional sport arena has been constructed in Biel, bringing together ice hockey/ice skating, curling and football under one roof. The surrounding area is home to a wide range of shopping, entertainment and leisure options.

This trendsetting building provides local ice hockey and football clubs, EHC Biel and FC Biel, plus the Biel skating club and curlers with a highly modernised home equipped with brand-new facilities. In addition, it also serves as a large arena for sport, culture, events, conferences, trade fairs, catering, specialist markets and entertainment. For more information, visit www.stades-de-bienne.com.

Uponor AG Schweiz has supplied thermoactive building component systems (TABS) for this project. The TABS system provides concrete core thermal regulation with a capacity for storage, and is primarily used in commercial buildings. This modern and high-quality system uses the storage capacity of concrete slabs to provide effective heating and cooling. The system is highly regarded by users and only incurs minimal investment and operating costs, while providing optimal use of regenerative energy sources. The components in this system are largely maintenance-free and offer complete freedom for flexible room design. For more info, visit www.uponor.ch/tabs

Icerink in "Városliget"

The history of the skating-rink The skating-rink of the Városliget, which was opened in 1926, was the second skating-rink (after Vienna) in Europe. In WWII it suffered a bomb hit, and in the 1950's it was only repaired temporarily. The latest large-scale renovation was carried out in 1986, when the modified power-house and condenser plant were installed, and the new, third layer of pipes was laid on the rink. After some small and large engineering modifications (1999 to 2001) – since the engineering system was outdated and spoiled – Municipality of Budapest called for a tender for comprehensive architectural and engineering reconstruction of the Skating-rink of Városliget.
