Richard Arnold was the Project Manager on behalf of Drivers Jonas for Coventry City Council’s new £113m development incorporating a 32,000 seat stadium, 10,000 m2 exhibition halls, regional casino, hotel, health & fitness suite and ancillary accommodation.
Richard’s role included interacting with a number of interested parties including the stadium operating company, football club and casino operator. He also led the team that was then responsible for the design and construction of the Arena to the satisfaction of the stakeholders.
The project was completed in August 2005 within budget and has gone on to be a very successful venue for football, concerts and exhibitions. It was also used as a venue for the London 2012 Olympic Football Tournament.
