Working with client World Sport Arabia, Arena Harlequin worked on the International Triathlon in Abu Dhabi, the first stop of the 2017 ITU World Triathlon Series.

The contract involved supplying structures, interiors, grandstand seating using the Arena clearview™ system, a raised VIP viewing deck and a raised finishing line, along with cooling for the athletes zone.

The 400sqm Arcus structure for the athletes area included medical facilities, a recovery area, lounge, doping testing area and a massage space. There were also 5x5m canopies for prayer rooms and an information area and bag drop structure.

Two seating grandstands were provided using Arena’s clearview™ system and a VIP raised deck using the Arena Super Deck which also accommodated the finish line TV structure and facilities for time keeping.

Harlequin has been involved with the World Triathlon Series for several years now and has a good understanding of the client’s needs so the planning process was smooth ahead of the four-day build.
