Let's combine here everything from stadiums to infrastructure such as hotels, roads and other facilities that are planned, approved, under constructions or finished, for the European Football Championship of 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.


_____


I'll start with the coolest stadium :)
Donetsk "Shahtar" stadium, uefa approved 5 stars.
Official description:

The project to build the new Shakhtar Stadium is a key element of the Clubs strategy to be recognized as one of the leading clubs in European football. It is, therefore, progressing in line with the improved performance of the team in domestic and European competitions and the development of the Clubs Training Camp and Re-habilitation Centre.

The original concept was for a stadium with a capacity of 40,000 seats. That was revised, however, after consideration of a number of issues including UEFAs Guidelines on new stadia design and construction. The Clubs decision was that Shakhtar Stadium should be of iconic design (memorable and unique), that it should be sympathetic to its environment in Leninskiy Komsomol Park and that it should receive UEFA 5-star accreditation with seated accommodation for 50,000 spectators.

Following UEFAs advice, the Stadium has been designed for football with no athletics tracks, allowing the seating decks to be positioned close to the playing surface. This creates a more exciting environment as well as improving spectators viewing positions. The Stadium will have a natural playing surface although the Club has taken account of UEFAs support for artificial surfaces where these meet UEFAs technical standards. Indeed, UEFA has already given approval for Champions League and UEFA Cup ties to be played on approved artificial surfaces.

Twenty-two design proposals were received from a range of architects. From these, one submitted by ArupSport, part of the Ove Arup Group and one of the worlds leading companies in stadium design, was approved by the Clubs President and Supervisory Board. The principal iconic features are the sloping roof from north to south in line with the site, the glass façade providing views into and out of the stadium, and the clear external concourses with no obstructions for visitors on match-days and on non match-days. Internally, the stadium has a classical oval shape, regarded as the optimum for atmosphere and viewing comfort. The Club and its advisers have involved UEFA in the design process and this will continue with the appointment of the general contractor, ENKA Insaat ve Sanayi A.S. (ENKA).

Shakhtar Stadium will be the first stadium in Eastern Europe to be designed and newly constructed in compliance with UEFAs 5-star Guidelines. This, together with the size and complexity of the project gives it pioneer status. This has brought its own problems and the Club has sought to overcome these by calling upon Western advisers for limited periods to determine the key issues of design, cost, programme and general contractor selection.

After a competitive tendering process, the project is moving ahead with ENKA as general contractor. ENKA is the largest construction contractor operating in Russia with a reputation for successfully delivering major projects on time and within budget. It has also completed a number of smaller projects in Ukraine. Currently, it is mobilizing in Donetsk and working on technical matters with its local partner, PromStroiNiiProekt. ArupSport will continue as the Clubs adviser on architectural issues. The Club has appointed the local company Stadion Shakhter Limited as Project Manager, to manage the construction contract with the general contractor and to ensure the projects delivery on time and within budget. Austin Reilly continues as Consultant to the Club on all stadium matters based upon his experience of the design and operation of UEFA 5-star accredited stadia in UK and in Portugal. The Club is confident that this team will deliver the project.

The stadium is due for completion in May 2008. This gives the general contractor a build time of 24 months. This is a fast-track programme but ENKA has researched the issues and is confident it can be achieved. The construction programme shows that, this year, piling and foundation works will start on site in June and continue until the end of the year. Reinforced concrete superstructures and precast works will start in September 2006 and continue through the summer of 2007. Early next year, work will commence on the roof covering and the outer façade. The commissioning and handover is planned for December 2007 until May 2008.

It means that the stadium opening can be celebrated in summer 2008 prior to the start of the new domestic football season. It will allow the players and coaches time to become familiar with the playing surface and the facilities, and the stewards and security staff time to plan and understand the safety features. It will also allow Shakhtar Stadium to host games in the UEFA youth tournament being held in Donbass Region in 2009. Shortly after its opening, the Club will apply to UEFA for Shakhtar Stadium to host one of UEFAs future final ties in the Champions League or UEFA Cup.

The principal concern of those who manage and operate stadia, is the safety of all those in the building no matter their status or role. Shakhtar Stadium has been designed to meet the highest standards of safety complying with Ukrainian law and international best practice. Access routes and turnstile entry points allow the stadium to fill completely in one hour and to evacuate, in an emergency, in eight minutes. Special areas are identified as places of safety for disabled spectators and their companions. The stadium will be controlled on match-days from a Control Room on Level 5 and on non match-days from a Control Room in Basement Level 1. From there, all areas within the stadium and all concourses and external access routes will be visible with uninterrupted coverage on CCTV. The tapes will allow action to be taken by the Clubs stewards and police in the event of any disturbance or illegal activity.

In addition to providing a safe environment, Shakhtar Stadium will also offer guests and supporters, standards of hospitality and comfort consistent with a UEFA 5-star venue. The principal hospitality will be on Levels 4 and 5 with 15 private suites, a restaurant and 2 bar areas in the West Stand, and 3 restaurants and 2 bar areas in the East Stand. There is also the flexibility to convert the East Stand restaurants into lounges or private suites. The main spectator areas will be on Levels 3 and 6/7. Each level will have ample provision of bars, kiosks, washrooms (male, female and disabled) and first aid rooms. The Players Areas will be on Levels 1 and 2 which will also house the facilities for the press, media and photographers.

As with most modern venues, Shakhtar Stadium will have a range of commercial outlets within the building. These will be situated at its southern end along with the main stadium reception and the Clubs administrative offices. The commercial outlets will include a themed café, similar to Manchester Uniteds Red Devils Café. It will be open daily and will attract families visiting the park as well as FC Shakhtar supporters on match-days. A museum / visitor attraction will tell the story of FC Shakhtar, displaying the Clubs trophies and memorabilia as well as a range of sports related games and tests for younger visitors. The Club Shop will contain the usual range of sportswear and Club souvenirs and gifts. Finally, a health club facility is planned. Its role within the Club has yet to be determined.

On non match-days, the Stadium and its range of hospitality rooms will be available for corporate events (meetings, product launches, public announcements, seasonal parties and so on), social occasions (parties and weddings), and music concerts. It will be a modern venue and will seek to attract international conventions, as well as national and regional, events. The stadium will become one of Donetsks principal visitor attractions and income generators.

The project has gone through a difficult period while the international consultants addressed the issues of design, site investigation, planning consents, technical reviews, construction costs and building programme. Clearly, the difference between Western and East European practices and procedures has meant that progress was not as fast as was originally intended. However, a pioneering project will always be subject to such constraints. The Club is now satisfied, however, that the team is in place to move ahead and deliver Shakhtar Stadium, with full UEFA accreditation, in time for the start of the 2008 football season.

Official Kyiv has announced plans to build 70 more hotels, in addition to existing 118. 26 of the hotels are in the planning or construction stage right now. The city plans to attract about 300 million dollars of investments into hotel construction sector within the next 3 years.
http://www.korrespondent.net/main/187577/

In Dnipropetrovsk, 5 hotels of 5 stars will be built, right now only one exists, the second 5 star hotel will begin construction in a matter of weeks or months. It will possibly remain as the largest 5 star hotel in Ukraine. The city will not have a problem with hotels, as it is in a middle of a hotel construction boom, with several hotels being opened this year alone. Subway line in Dnipropetrovsk will be extended.


Donetsk authorities vow to have a fully operational subway system in the city by 2012, it might open as early as 2010. As a result, 3 of the 4 Ukrainian cities hosting the Championship will be equipped with underground subways.

26 billions euros from European Union will be spend to organize the euro 2012 Poland/Ukraine. Ukraine will have a bit of it too (to built motorways needed between stadiums for example) through UEFA. If, inside an ukrainian stadium, you see UEFA money to built/renovate it, you possibly know where it is from now.

Poland/Ukraine is a political decision more that a logical one, with so much troubles in ukrainian politics, European Union through football wants to put its hand over Ukraine and put out Russia. It's quite simple :cheers:

Looks like you're pulling information out of your ass. I've followed every single article on Euro 2012 in Ukraine, and nowhere did it mention any possibility of funding from EU.

Now leave this thread with your political bullcrap. :cheers:

And i can confirm what i say : It is completely illogical (and even more after what we saw with the world cup Japan/Korea) to see stadium that can be as far as about 3000 kilometers... Without a single good road or railway or airport. It's nice to cheat like during Eurovision to make eastern europeans happy, but Euro of football is watched by millions people accross the world, prepare to have another "wild dance" in Kiev... :lol:

You surely don't count everything around. Like i said, no good roads, railways/ railway stations with maybe a possible wifi spot (a single would be enough LOL), airports, hotels ... hm Athens had 7 years to prepare olympics from nearly anything, you have 5 years ...

:lol: good luck :lol:

I don't think you understood my point, obviously you're talking out of your ass.

It would help you to stop whining like a little bitch, and please, for everyone's sake, don't worry about Ukraine, it's not your country and it shouldn't be your problem :)

Can some mod delete posts by this monkey, or relocate them to some non-construction related thread about this topic? I don't find it to get ruined by some troll.
