Focus on Performance

A sporting backdrop for the eight members of Group Management. With an investment volume of CHF 65 million, the new “La Tuilière” stadium in Lausanne will have capacity for 12,000 spectators and is due to open in summer 2020. For this architecturally sophisticated project, Sika supplied sealing systems for the below-ground stories, anticorrosion protection for the steel structures, insulation solutions, and roofing membranes.
