Arup signs design contract for Olympic complex for Turkmenistan

Consultant Arup is to design phase two of the Ashgabat Olympic Complex in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan’s capital city.

The consultant has signed a contract to provide ‘total’ design for the project including structural and infrastructure design. It has already provided similar services for phase one.

The project includes 750,000sqm of buildings including a velodrome, arenas, training halls, hotels, offices, a medical centre and media facilities.

The Turkmenistan Government reportedly hopes the building of Olympic facilities will one day lead to the country being awarded the right to host the Olympic Games. The facilities are being built in three phases for an estimated cost of around £3.2bn.

Phase two is scheduled to be completed in 2016.
