The Oran Olympic complex was built to host the 2022 Mediterranean Games. The project is led by Origin Architects and began 20 years ago with the design of the master plan.
Once the infrastructure is built, companies specializing in light and heavy equipment will be involved in the project. The basketball and tennis courts and the main stadium required nets, benches, diving boards and all the equipment needed for the sports competitions.
Finally, thanks to their visibility, major sporting events are also an opportunity for the development of certain sports. In this case, Hurricane, a company specialized in urban sports, has contributed to the popularization of these sports in Algeria. These initiatives are part of the legacy that sporting events leave behind.
The Yamoussoukro stadium in Ivory Coast was built for CAN 2023.
The architectural firm SCAU was responsible for the design of this infrastructure. The stadium was built of hardened concrete because of the need for a durable infrastructure that can be used for the practice of the sport after the competition.
The stadium was thus built as part of a French consortium based on the specifications drawn up by CAF and the local authorities.
Part of the legacy of the African Cup of Nations is this infrastructure, which will blend into the cityscape in the long term and be reused for the development of sport for all in Ivory Coast.
The BMX race is a competition with 8 participants who have to cover a distance of 340 to 450 meters as fast as possible. The track is littered with bumps and must meet technical quality standards so that the athletes can practice their sport in the best possible conditions.
The ProTracks company, which specializes in urban sports infrastructures, designed the plans for the facility, taking into account the specifications of the UCI (International Cycling Union).
For the realization and construction, two other members of France Sport Expertise were called in, namely Loxam for the rental of construction equipment and Alcor, manufacturer of modular and mobile grandstands for the reception of spectators.
As this is a short-lived event, all the infrastructure designed for this major event is modular, dismountable and transportable, in particular reusable.
