A team led by Legends International has been tasked with supporting Stockholm Globe Arena Fastigheter (SGAF) in reimagining the performance space at Avicii Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, in line with preliminary decisions made by Stockholm City Council.
Legends International has been appointed to deliver project management services, and to lead a team of experts in supporting SGAF, creating a concept design and contributing to the business case, with a focus on enhancing the fan and guest experience and additional revenue generation.
“It has been a long and rewarding process, and we feel confident that we, together with our tenant Stockholm Live, among others, have procured a very competent team in Legends International,” said Mats Viker, CEO at SGAF. “We are looking forward to working up proposals for the Stockholm City Council and beginning the development of Avicii Arena.”
“Avicii Arena is an iconic venue, which our team are privileged to be helping SGAF reimagine,” said Martin Jennings, managing director, UK, and head of global planning for Legends International. “We believe we have brought together a great combination of international design and project expertise, combined with local knowhow, to help SGAF make Avicii Arena a landmark venue for live entertainment and top-tier ice hockey for years to come.”
As well as project manager Legends International, the team also includes HOK (architect); schlaich bergermann partner (structures); Ramboll (engineering); Efterklang (acoustics); Light Bureau (lighting); AFRY (cost management); and Movement Strategies (crowd dynamics).
“Avicii Arena is such a significant and wonderful landmark in Stockholm and has a long and storied history as a premier destination for concerts, entertainment and hockey,” said John Rhodes, director of Sports + Entertainment at HOK. “We are honoured to have the opportunity to collaborate with Legends International and SGAF to infuse the arena with new offerings and energy that will elevate the spectator, athlete and performer experience.”
