New look for the NIA
The £20.5m modernisation of Birmingham’s National Indoor Arena will help attract the world’s leading indoor sports events, live shows and concerts, say its owners.
Designs for the facility, which has not been refurbished since its opening in 1991, take advantage of its location on the city’s canal side and will feature a new entrance straight from Brindleyplace into the arena, with large glazed views over the water and the city.
Work is set to get underway in late 2012 and will include improved facilities and a much greater emphasis on both the pre and post show experience. The flow within the venue will be made much easier, increasing the ease of access and comfort for promoters, artists and visitors to the building.
The new design also includes further opportunities for retail units with an extra 5,926sq m of pre and post show space added to the 7,500sq m of refurbishment that will take place.
