  Among the many Chinese elements of the World Cup in Qatar, the main World Cup stadium constructed by a Chinese company as the main contractor for the first time is undoubtedly one of the "hard core".

  Recently, Huang Taorui, deputy manager of China Railway Construction Lussel Stadium Project, accepted an exclusive interview with Zhongxin Finance and Economics and shared the story of the construction of the stadium.

"Ninety-nine and eighty-one difficulties"

  The Lusail Stadium is the main venue for the World Cup in Qatar. The project started on November 21, 2016 and will be completed on September 30, 2021.

Recalling the construction process of the stadium, Huang Taorui, deputy project manager of China Railway Construction Lussel Stadium, said, "I feel that I have gone through ninety-nine and eighty-one difficulties, and it seems that I have completed the path of learning."

  The first is the difficulty of the working environment.

"Qatar has a tropical desert climate, surrounded by the sea on three sides, and the humidity is very high." Tao Rui said, "After the sun comes out during the day, the air is not so humid, and the sweat evaporates to take away the heat in the body. But at night, it's like soaking in a sauna. Same here."

  In addition, technically, the structure of Lusail Stadium is very complicated.

"Many design forms and structural forms are the first attempts. Under such a background, we are exploring and advancing steadily."

  In Huang Tao Rui's view, the biggest difficulty was the tight schedule.

"Because the project is large in size and technically difficult, it took a long time just in terms of design."

  In order to save time, the team used software simulation analysis.

Huang Taorui introduced that because the shell of Lussel is a steel structure, and the steel structure will be deformed.

If the processing is done synchronously according to the design drawings, although the processing time is taken over, it may not be able to be installed on site.

However, if after the steel structure is completed, the on-site re-measurement, and then processing according to the completed geometry, it will be too late in time.

  "Therefore, we did a sophisticated software simulation analysis to simulate the entire construction process, what kind of deformation it will produce at a certain stage, and the amount of deformation. Then, according to the estimated amount of deformation, some costs were added. A lot of adjustable nodes have been made to ensure that errors will not accumulate in the future, and at the same time to ensure that these things can be installed after processing in advance.”

Workers concert in the stadium

  The construction of the Lusail Stadium involves 110 large-scale subcontractors and more than 7,000 Chinese and foreign builders from more than 20 countries around the world.

What is the living environment and life of the workers like?

  Tao Rui introduced, "In order to ensure the health of workers, we have strictly controlled the open-air working environment. We not only monitor the temperature, but also monitor the humidity."

  "The construction standards of the worker's dormitory are also very high." Huang Taorui told the reporter that each room in the quadruple room is equipped with air conditioners and shower rooms.

  During the peak period of the Lusail Stadium project, the number of workers was close to 5,000, and the workers came from 18 countries around the world.

Huang Tao Rui recalled, "We even set up a stage in the stadium and invited some workers to go up and hold a concert."

'I'd love to see the game at the Lusail Stadium'

  Today, the stadium has become a new landmark beside the Persian Gulf and has driven the rise of Lusail New Town.

The "Golden Bowl" with a construction area of ​​195,000 square meters can accommodate 80,000 people watching the game at the same time, and will undertake many important activities and events of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

  At the same time, the experience of building the Lusail Stadium also brought some changes to Tao Rui.

  "I didn't watch football before, but after building this stadium, I feel directly involved in the preparations for the World Cup in Qatar. Now I will want to watch the game at the Lusail Stadium, but I don't watch football. , but look at every corner that the camera scans. To recall the corner at that time, what stories happened when the structure was built and the seat was installed at that time. I will also think of the past mental journey and the difficulties encountered at that time.”

  Regarding this stadium, Huang Taorui said with emotion, "I stared at it from the beginning to the end, from the first shovel of soil to the final film covering. From an emotional point of view, I watched him go from a desert, two blueprints, to the last To build such a magnificent big golden bowl. Many points in the middle, I feel that I have congealed my own hard work. It feels like raising a girl. The World Cup is held, and I married her. There is a sense of accomplishment, There is also the reluctance of an old father." (End)
