Safzip Roofing Sheet roof’s Peddem Stadium for Lusofonia Games 2014


When The Association of National Olympic Committees of Portuguese Official Language (ACOLOP), decided to hold the Lusofonia Games 2014 at Peddem stadium, Goa, Safintra Roofing was chosen to roof the new Peddem Stadium, which was built for the games.

Safintra Roofing used Safzip sheet with 0.91mm thickness, a standing seam roofing system, for the Multipurpose Indoor Stadium at Peddem. To complement the architectural aesthetic of the building, Safzip stucco embossed aluminum sheets were used which reduced the light reflecting ability of the metal and gave the Indoor stadium a beautiful and high class appearance. Here, the unique Double skin system was used, wherein to enhance the Thermal efficiency of the roof, an Insulation panel is installed in between the Liner and the Safzip roofing sheet that was used as the top layer. The material of liner used was Trimflute sheet, PPGL of Dove White colour with 0.50 mm thickness.

Instead of transporting the readymade roofing sheets from the factory to the site, the machine itself was taken to the site. Safzip sheets were Roll Formed onsite for the construction, thus considerably increasing the speed of the construction by allowing sheet lengths of up to 78 meters to be individually produced. The additional benefit of producing the long lengths was the avoidance of any end laps and hence further eliminating the chances of leakage and corrosion. Trimflute sheets were roll formed in factory and transported to the site. Also, keeping in mind the design and the architectural needs of the Indoor stadium the Trimflute sheets were reversed profiled. On average 6404.736 of Safzip sheets were produced for this project.

Safintra India’s unique approach to this challenging project not only allowed for it to be completed in one and a half months but also provided Peddem stadium with the roof they required, both in terms of aesthetics and quality.
