Work got underway on-site on December 17, 2017, and BAM International (BAM) expects to complete Yas Arena by November 2019.
The new 18,000-capacity venue will be used to host events in a temperature-controlled environment and will be located on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
The company responsible for the arena’s design is HOK – a global design, architecture, engineering and planning firm – with support from Pascall+Watson.
HOK is also behind the design for the adjacent arena retail and dining destination along the boardwalk, forming a mixed-use anchor on the east end of Yas Bay.
Abu Dhabi events company, Flash Entertainment, will host gigs and sports events inside the Yas Arena and it has been designed in a way it can host a variety of events, from tennis tournaments to wrestling matches and more.
Yas Island is located in Abu Dhabi. BAM International has successfully delivered various projects on Yas Island, including the Crowne Plaza and Staybridge suites hotels, as well as the Welcome Pavilion, which provides visitors with a luxury shopping, resting and leisure area before or after the visit to the island’s many attractions, such as Ferrari World.
