Project Preview: Nou Espai Barça

William Mannarelli, Project Manager Nou Espai Barça is “looking forward to TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit 2015” in London later this year.

Top TrumpFC Barcelona’s Nou Espai Barça project goes well beyond the modernisation and reconstruction of the Camp Nou. In addition to increasing the capacity of the current stadium to 105,000 and completely remodeling the current structure of the Camp Nou, the Espai Barça project entails building a new Palau Blaugrana with a capacity of 12,000, an additional court with a capacity of 2,000, an ice rink, a new social area, a new commercial area, revamped Club offices, La Masía and an additional 5,000 parking spaces.

Ahead of the Summit in London this October, Mr Mannarelli took time out of his busy schedule to catch up with us.

“I’m really looking forward to #TDS15 in London later this year. It gives us a great opportunity to update the global sports industry on the status of our Espai Barça project. It’s also the perfect time for us to catch up with old friends and make new contacts who can help us with our project.”

Never before have we seen a modernisation project of this scale or cost. The project to remodel the Camp Nou will cost no more than €400 million and the cost of the entire project is estimated to be €600 million.

For those of you that missed TheStadiumBusiness Summit 2015 in Barcelona this June, Mr Mannarelli gave us an insightful update into the project so far. In fact, it was the one year anniversary of the project masterplan.

“So far, we have: ensured the program fits within our €600m budget, developed precise budgets for each area of the project, developed a construction schedule and reduced the risks and unknowns during all phases of the project,” he explained.

A lot can happen in just four months, and Bill will be on hand to update us on the status of the project this October.
