The VINCI-FAYAT consortium declared preferred bidder for future Bordeaux stadium 18 July 2011

• A multi-purpose facility with a seating capacity of more than 40,000
• Original design by architects Herzog & de Meuron

Alain Juppé, Mayor of Bordeaux, has just declared Stade Bordeaux Atlantique, the consortium led by VINCI Concessions in association with FAYAT Group, the preferred bidder for the PPP contract to design, finance, build, operate and maintain the new 40,000-seat Bordeaux stadium.

The stadium will be designed and built by a construction consortium comprising lead company VINCI Construction France, via its subsidiaries GTM Bâtiment Aquitaine-Limousin and Faure Silva, and the FAYAT Group. This consortium will be supported by international architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron assisted by Groupe 6 and Stadia Consulting Group teams.

The new Bordeaux stadium will be handed over in 2015. It will be operated by the Stade Bordeaux Atlantique company, a joint subsidiary of VINCI Concessions and FAYAT SA. VINCI Facilities will handle upkeep and maintenance.

Located in the ‘green belt’ of the Bordeaux Lac district, the new Bordeaux stadium project will pay particular attention to the landscaping of the site, which has been entrusted to landscape architect Michel Desvigne, winner of the 2011 Grand Prix de l’Urbanisme award.

The top-level multi-sports infrastructure will meet the standards of the football and rugby federations and be able to host international events such as Euro 2016. The stadium will also serve as a cultural facility, hosting major concerts and shows and confirming Bordeaux as a major venue on the itineraries of touring performers.

VINCI Concessions has operated the Stade de France under a concession contract since 1998 and the MMArena stadium in Le Mans since 2011. The Group will operate the future Nice Stadium to be handed over in 2013. These projects reflect VINCI’s capacity to develop solutions and cater for the needs of public authorities in large-scale sports facilities.
