As the last steel tube was hoisted and installed in the designated position, construction of the steel structure of the Asian Youth Games stadium was completed on the morning of Aug. 30. This marked the completion of all steel structure construction for all main structures in the Asian Youth Games main venue project.
Steel structure construction of the stadium began in May and took around four months to complete. As one of the most important and difficult links in the whole project, the process comprised the hoisting and installation of tens of thousands of steel tubes, columns and trusses, the largest of which weighs close to a thousand tons.
Construction of the Asian Youth Games main venue, which includes a stadium, a gymnasium, a training hall, a conference center and other supporting facilities, is progressing smoothly. The roof of the whole project, designed to resemble a splashing wave, is beginning to take shape.
