Darius and Girėnas Stadium

Darius and Girėnas Stadium is the first sports arena, to meet UEFA Category 4 standards in Lithuania. The renovation process lasting almost four years is scheduled to be finished in 2022. Recent upgrades will allow sports fans to enjoy competitions and sports events even during the cold and rainy seasons. The area which is equipped with a hybrid coating adapted for use in various weather conditions reaches up to 7,140 m2. More than 33 kilometers of Uponor Pex-a pipes were used to install the system.
During the reconstruction of the stadium, not only the infrastructure for sports activities was renewed, but new, comfortable lodges with a capacity of more than 15 thousand spectators were added as well.

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 After some small and large engineering modifications (1999 to 2001) – since the engineering system was outdated and spoiled – Municipality of Budapest called for a tender for comprehensive architectural and engineering reconstruction of the Skating-rink of Városliget.
