25th IAKS Congress 7 â€“ 10 Nov 2017 Cologne www.iaks.org 1
WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE IAKS PRESIDENT
25th IAKS CONGRESS 2017 After the 50th anniversary of IAKS in 2015, we will be celebrating another anniversary this year: the 25th IAKS Congress. Since its first staging in 1969, it has evolved into a world-leading congress for sports and leisure facilities. Attracting speakers from all over the world, it gives participants valuable inspiration for their work. Its linkage with world flagship fair FSB in Cologne makes the IAKS Congress the biennial highlight for the sports and leisure facility industry. The Congress addresses current topics and trends in sports and leisure facilities. These include, among others, safety, sustainability and economic issues, for both sports stadia and small community facilities. But sports and leisure facilities must not be considered solely in isolation, for they are part of urban development and have an impact on society. Public spaces and multifunctional community centres as locations for the practise of physical activities are thus growing in importance. We are also presenting examples of best practices for different types of sports facility. And technical and architectural themes will also of course be covered. I wish very much to draw your attention to the Award Gala on 7 November when the presentation of the IOC IPC IAKS architecture awards will be taking place. This commendation of sports and leisure facilities embodying exemplary design and function has developed into the “Oscar” for the industry. Be sure not to miss this attractive occasion! None of all this would be possible without years of fruitful cooperation with strong partners. I should like to take this opportunity to express my warmest thanks to our partners – the IOC, IPC, GAISF, Koelnmesse and also the German Ministry of the Interior – for their valuable involvement. I wish you many interesting conversations and exciting findings during this exciting week in Cologne at the IAKS Congress, FSB and the many events taking place in its course. Seize the opportunity and take time for this valuable exchange of expertise – one that is only available every two years. It is of course best if you become a member of IAKS so as to have access in the period between IAKS Congresses to the latest findings and the various benefits of IAKS membership. We would be happy to let you know more at our stand on the exhibition centre boulevard. I look forward to meeting you personally at this year’s leading event for the industry. Yours Dr Stefan Kannewischer IAKS President 3
WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE IOC PRESIDENT
25th IAKS CONGRESS 2017
Welcome to the 25th Congress of the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS). This landmark 25th Congress gives me the opportunity to congratulate the IAKS for its tireless effort in setting new standards for top-class, functional and sustainable sport facilities all over the world for more than a half of century. Your work is fundamental in creating the fields of play where the sporting dreams of so many people become reality. This is why the IAKS and the Olympic Movement are working towards the same goal of making sport accessible to everyone, everywhere. The role of sport in society is more relevant than ever. Sport is a powerful catalyst for sustainable development. In this way, sport has a powerful important impact on the lives of people. As acknowledged by the United Nations, sport is an important enabler to reach to the ambitious agenda of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Because of its universality and global reach, sport is a unique tool to support all countries in reaching their social development objectives in health, education, and many other areas. More than ever, the world of sport needs to respond to this reality by embracing sustainability and delivering positive and long-term benefits for people. The focus of your Congress on how to develop and operate appropriate sport facilities and programmes could not come at a better time. I wish you all a successful Congress with fruitful discussions on this important topic over the coming days. Thank you for your continued support and shared commitment to making the world a better place through sport.
Yours Dr Thomas Bach IOC President
WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE IPC PRESIDENT
25th IAKS CONGRESS 2017 On behalf of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), it is a great pleasure to congratulate the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS) on holding its 25th international congress this November in Cologne. At the IPC we are currently midway through our Strategic Plan 2015-2018 which features six strategic goals, one of which is fostering key strategic partnerships. As the global governing body for the Paralympic Movement we aim to form collaborative partnerships with organisations whereby we can build on synergies and common vision. Such a synergy exists with IAKS. We share a common desire for creation, innovation and excellence. Through the biennial IPC/IAKS Distinction for Accessibility, we recognise and celebrate building design that blends efficient engineering together with human understanding and inclusivity. As the Paralympic Games continue to grow in size and scale, we frequently see the challenges cities and municipal governments face when staging the event. We work closely together with the IOC and Organising Committees to create sustainable and accessible venues, whilst at the same time look at ways to reduce costs. Therefore, we can relate strongly with this year’s congress theme and have a keen interest in new approaches to funding, project delivery and sustainable operations. Key to maintaining a healthy environment is accessibility and in my view an environment cannot be considered “healthy” if part of the population is excluded from using it. All sport venues and leisure facilities should benefit from universal design to cater for not just people with an impairment, but parents with pushchairs and today’s ever aging population. I will certainly be keen to learn about the outcomes of this year’s congress. Enjoy your time in Cologne. Yours Andrew Parsons IPC President
WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE GAISF PRESIDENT
25th IAKS CONGRESS 2017
On behalf of the Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) it gives me great pleasure to congratulate the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS) on holding their 25th Congress. I am delighted to represent GAISF and act as patron of such a long-standing, successful international event. IAKS plays a pivotal role in the design and construction of new sports facilities within the challenging current environment of reduced government funding and sustainable developments. The IAKS Congress is the perfect showcase for promoting international exchange, in addition to rewarding exceptional sports and leisure design by young architects. I wish all those participating in the IAKS 25th Congress a successful and productive time. Yours Patrick Baumann GAISF President
WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE FEDERAL MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR
25th IAKS CONGRESS 2017
Anyone who practises sport – at grass-roots or professional level – needs good and functional sports grounds, water sports facilities, gyms and artificial ice rinks. All this and more are the subject of the International IAKS Congress for the Design, Construction, Modernisation and Management of sports and leisure facilities. As the Minister of Sport, I am happy to serve as patron what is now the 25th IAKS Congress. Why? Because we are indebted to the IAKS Congress for an effective transfer of information on modern and demand-driven sports facilities and attractive leisure infrastructure – and have been for more than five decades. For this and other reasons, the work of the IAKS is highly appreciated by international federations and the International Olympic Committee. We need high-grade, functional and sustainable sports facilities so that sport can benefit society. Sport encourages achievement and competition. It spurs people on and creates role models. In an increasingly diverse society, sport fosters cohesion, communicates shared values and thus facilitates integration and understanding. This applies as much to mass sport as to elite sport. For their preparations for Olympic Games, world and European championships in biathlon, bobsleigh, athletics, handball and many other sports, our top-level athletes need sports facilities of the highest standard for training and competition. National government supports the construction of these sports facilities to the tune of 16 million euros – a figure underlining the importance that the Federal Government attaches to modern sports facility infrastructure for high-performance sport. I wish all Congress participants a productive exchange of experience in Cologne and plenty of inspiration for their on-going work. Yours Dr Thomas de Maizière Federal Minister of the Interior

TUESDAY, 10.30 - 12.15 h Welcome address and official opening of the congress Dr Stefan Kannewischer, IAKS President, Switzerland
Successful partnerships between sports and municipal governments in staging national and international events Presentations and discussion with the panelists Moderator: Gilbert Felli, Senior Advisor, IOC, Switzerland Developing a critical and realistic partnering game plan Ron Bidulka, Managing Director, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Canada Influencing venue development for the benefit of legacy operations Simon Cooper, Head of Sport Unit, Greater London Authority, United Kingdom Long-term sustainability â€“ the operating legacy Brad Mayne, President and CEO of the International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM), USA Municipal governments are looking for innovative ways of financing sports and leisure facilities. The prospect of hosting a national or international sports competition is an exciting proposition but one that needs to be understood and dealt with based on a solid understanding of both the opportunities and risks. Event hosting can have a dramatic effect on a cityâ€™s stature and reputation but an unrealistic set of expectations can create a legacy of underutilized facilities and underestimated ongoing operating costs. This session will look at the critical initial steps in the planning and due-diligence process that can help develop a realistic set of expectations and project national and international participation, appropriate venue sizes, supportable post-games uses, opportunities for enhancing short and long-term revenue generation, and strategies for minimizing the long-term operating risks.
TUESDAY, 13.30 - 15.00 h Temporary and modular infrastructure for sports venues Presentations and discussion with the panelists Moderator: Daniel Cordey, Chairman, Association of Global Event Suppliers (AGES), Switzerland Temporary ice hockey arena in Lausanne Bernd Helmstadt, Sales Director, NĂźssli Group, Germany Temporary Water Polo venue for London 2012 Andy Mytom, Partner, David Morley Architects, United Kingdom Demountable judo hall in Arnhem Tom Ambaum, Global Sales Director, Neptunus, Netherlands Modular sports venues: rugby stadium in La Rochelle StĂŠphanie Commandeur, Business Development Manager, GL Events, France Manuel Laborie, Business Development, GL Events, France Temporary and modular structures are used to enhance new or existing facilities for special events, upgrade or remodel existing facilities for a specific length of time, or even serve as sports and spectator facilities. They are designed to be installed quickly and can be a cost-effective short- or medium-term solution. This session features industry experts who will present exceptional solutions including technical innovations and building delivery procedures. They will demonstrate compatibility with international standards or objectives concerning hydrocarbon emissions and sustainability issues. This session is presented in cooperation with AGES. The Association of Global Event Suppliers (AGES) is a not-for-profit organization based in Switzerland and founded in June 2014 to act as a label for quality and reliability in temporary infrastructure provision for major events.
TUESDAY, 15.00 - 16.00 h Trends in operating sports and entertainment venues Workshop for delegates to discuss challenges and exchange expertise Moderator: John Sheehan, Editor, PanStadia & Arena Management, United Kingdom Experts: Marcin Wojczynski, Head of Business Development, SMG Worldwide Entertainment & Convention Venue Management, Poland Brad Mayne, President and CEO of the International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM), USA Sports and entertainment venues have always been a hub or gathering place, whether in major urban centres or smaller cities and towns. The success of a venue depends on a number of factors including the frequency of events, the nature, diversity and relevance of those events, the ability to enhance the overall experience of spectators/attendees, and, ever more importantly, to provide a sense of safety and security in and around the venue. This workshop will look at the challenges facing operators of professional and semiprofessional venues as they strive to make their facilities socially, environmentally and financially sustainable and add to the vibrancy of their region and market.
TUESDAY, 16.00 - 17.30 h Major sports and entertainment venues as generators for urban development and redevelopment Presentations and discussion with the panelists Moderator: Prof. Geraint John, Senior Advisor, Populous, United Kingdom Development of football stadiums in city locations: case studies from Germany Matthias SchĂśner, Project Manager, Albert Speer+Partner, Germany TD Place at Lansdowne Park, Canada Robert J. Fatovic, Vice President, CannonDesign, USA Games masterplans for London 2012 and Rio 2016: learnings and trends Bill Hanway, Executive Vice President, AECOM, USA The stadium of tomorrow: innovative design and regeneration led by the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium Tom Jones, Senior Principal, Populous, United Kingdom In the development of major municipal venues, cities are trying to maximize their use beyond sports events in an effort to reach new audiences and markets, and enhance the location as a sports and tourist destination. The ultimate success of a stadium or arena in meeting strategic short-, medium- and long-term goals is fundamentally tied to the initial master planning process. The integration of event planning expertise, regional market knowledge, and long-term â€œcommunity-buildingâ€?, whether for an existing urban context or a new planned community, is critical in achieving the vision and objectives. Stadiums and arenas are regarded as catalysts for healthy urban development. A homogeneous overall picture is created if they are integrated effectively into the overall urban landscape, help stimulate new shops, hotels, housing and commercial facilities, and are well served by infrastructure.)

WEDNESDAY, 11.00 - 12.00 h Innovative funding and delivery models for community sports and leisure projects Workshop for delegates to discuss challenges and exchange expertise Moderator: Conrad Boychuk, Senior Director of Recreation and Venue Development, HDR | CEI Architecture Associates, Canada Experts: Ron Bidulka, Managing Director, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Canada Rick Kozuback, President and CEO, International Coliseums Corporation, USA Sports and leisure facilities are a critical part of a communityâ€™s infrastructure and have a profound effect on the overall health of its citizens. However funding for both capital and operating costs presents a challenge in spite of the benefits. While spectator facilities have an ability to generate significant revenues based on events, the day-to-day functioning of community sports and leisure facilities present a special challenge. There have been a number of alternative funding and delivery models developed with varying degrees of success including Public Private Partnerships and Public Public Partnerships. This workshop looks at delivery models beyond the P3 models, with examples of them illustrating both successful and unsuccessful strategies from a number of countries. The workshop will introduce a variety of completed projects delivered utilizing a broad range of unique funding mechanisms that have the potential to be transferred internationally.
WEDNESDAY, 13.30 - 15.00 h 2017 IOC IPC IAKS Architecture Prizes: Exemplary community sports and leisure facilities Presentations and discussion with the panelists Moderator: Wolfgang Becker, Director of the University and Provincial Sports Centre in Rif/Salzburg, Austria Arena do Futuro in Rio de Janeiro Ana Paula Polizzo, Director and Partner, OA I OFICINA de Arquitetos, Brazil Cinqueanelli: Tokyo Olympic Stadium design study Gildo Incitti, Founder and Partner, NIS Architects, Italy Singapore National Stadium and Sports Hub Chris Dite, Associate Director, Arup Associates, United Kingdom The IOC IAKS Award and the IPC IAKS Distinction are the most important international architecture prizes for sports, leisure and recreational facilities.

There are many aspects to this issue, but the most notable is the increase in obesity in all age groups. We are at a possible turning point where the next generation may be less healthy than the current one. Municipal governments in particular are facing greater complexities and obstacles in providing appropriate facilities and programmes. This workshop will allow delegates to discuss the challenges in finding the right strategy supported by appropriate levels of funding for maintaining and developing healthy communities.

THURSDAY, 10.30 - 12.00 h Activating urban spaces Presentations and discussion with the panelists Moderator: Karin Schwarz-Viechtbauer, Director, Austrian Institute for School and Sports Facilities (Ă–ISS) (Educational) Playscapes as urban catalysts Elger Blitz, Founder and Senior Designer, carve, Netherlands Pumptracks for Basel: another form of bike promotion in a city Florian Mathys, Division Manager, Sports department of the municipality of Basel, Switzerland Transforming schoolyards into local community activity areas Lars Hjorth BĂŚrentzen, Communications Consultant, Lokale og AnlĂŚgsfonden, Denmark There is universal demand for active living opportunities, and at a local or municipal level this can be achieved in part with the creation of new exercise spaces, all-year gym usage and more flexibility on the part of operators. It is beneficial and effective to create extra spaces that better integrate sports and leisure programming opportunities. Communication, creativity and operative flexibility are essential components for strengthening effective and easily accessible opportunities for sports and active living for a community with a diverse range of ages, cultures and expectations. Outdoor facilities have something to offer users all year round. Facilities open to the public, however, are exposed to growing risks in terms of liability and vandalism. For a facility to be function successfully, operators and user groups, who often are not organised in the traditional sense, must network closely.
THURSDAY, 13.30 - 15.00 h The feasibility study: A collaborative process for developing a project Presentations and discussion with the panelists Moderator: Zbigniew Klonowski, President of IAKS Poland Pre-planning and due diligence for community sports and leisure facilities Conrad Boychuk, Senior Director of Recreation and Venue Development, HDR | CEI Architecture Associates, Canada The business case: a realistic assessment of economic impact and long-term operating costs Ron Bidulka, Managing Director, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Canada A successful community sports and recreation facility or venue starts with a critical assessment of needs, resources, risks and opportunities. The pre-planning or due diligence for community sports and leisure facilities requires a thorough understanding of the makeup of the community and its range of preferences and expectations. This includes an identification of underserved needs, a realistic assessment of capital and operating costs, a strategic approach to planning the facility to maximize revenues, and an understanding of the social, lifestyle and long-term economic impact of delivering the facility. Municipal governments are looking for a planning or due-diligence process that:
Actively engages the community especially where residents have differing or conflicting opinions, and document that engagement
Locates the facility in the most beneficial location based on a number of important matrices
Includes the most relevant components or capacities to suit the needs or the market
Realistically assesses the financial outcomes of the project in terms of capital cost, operating costs, and enhanced revenue opportunities
Assesses the larger view of long-term economic impact on the community or market region.
The development of a professionally prepared feasibility study and business case will form a framework that can provide various levels of governments with a higher level of confidence in co-funding the project.
THURSDAY, 15.30 - 16.30 h Trends in operating municipal and community sports and leisure facilities Workshop for delegates to discuss challenges and exchange expertise Moderator: Wolfgang Becker, Director of the University and Provincial Sports Centre in Rif/Salzburg, Austria Experts: Gar Holohan, Founder and Chair, AURA Holohan Group, Ireland Prof. Peter Taylor, Sheffield Hallam University, United Kingdom How are municipal operators responding to demographic change and the changing needs of recreation seekers? Where is the middle way between provision for the community and market demands? In this context of expanded users, facilities and programmes, many governments also face the prospect of reduced funding and have to find alternative ways to deliver projects and programmes.
THURSDAY, 16.00 - 17.30 h Innovative solutions for community sports and leisure facilities Presentations and discussion with the panelists Moderator: Mike Hall, Partner, FaulknerBrowns Architects, United Kingdom Landskate Parks in Barcelona: new squares for the city of the future Oscar Blasco, Founder and Architect, SCOB Arquitectura i Paisatge, Spain Sergi Carulla, Founder and Architect, SCOB Arquitectura i Paisatge, Spain Building community connections with municipal sports and recreation facilities Darryl Condon, Managing Principal, HCMA Architecture + Design, Canada Street sports: The way ahead for other types of sports facilities as well? Lars Hjorth BĂŚrentzen, Communications Consultant, Lokale og AnlĂŚgsfonden, Denmark The planning and design of community sports and leisure facilities has been evolving over the past number of decades but even more change is required as expectations diversify. There is a greater range of ages and abilities looking to become or stay active and a broader range of programmes and sports activities expected. Community sports and leisure facilities are as much a gathering and socializing destination as a place to engage in specific sports. While this requires a greater degree of user expectations in the planning process, it also provides new opportunities for both enhanced revenue generation and increasing the overall health communities. There is a more holistic approach to envisioning, planning, and delivering facilities, programmes, and opportunities for social engagement.

Previously largely reserved for team sports, indoor sports facilities are turning increasingly into community centres. Sports, fitness and recreational activities and even cultural programming can be made available at a single integrated facility. The second part of the session will offer the latest findings on optimizing natural lighting in sports halls as well as benefits and challenges of LED lighting.
FRIDAY, 13.00 - 14.30 h Natural, hybrid and synthetic turf systems Presentations and discussion with the panelists Moderator: Dr-Ing Markus Fischer, Managing Partner, Dr-Ing Fischer Consult, Germany Natural and hybrid turf systems: advantages and challenges Dr Harald Nonn, Chairman, German Turf Society, Germany Objective measurement of natural grass and hybrid sports field performance AurĂŠlien Le Blan, CEO, Labosport Group, France Synthetic sports fieldsâ€™ rubber infill: health protection and environmental impacts Martin Sheppard, Managing Director, Smart Connection Consultancy, Australia Artificial (synthetic) turf systems have reached the highest level of technical function and comfort for players. Now they are challenged by questions about their health effects and environmental impact. Hybrid turf or reinforced natural grass combines natural grass with synthetic reinforcing fibres. It is used for stadium pitches and training pitches, for football, rugby, American football and baseball. Reinforced natural grass can also be used for events and concerts. The synthetic fibres incorporated into the root zone make the grass stronger and more resistant to damage.

The Pumptrack allows riders to use their body weight, gravity and momentum to push themselves around the track rather than relying on peddling or pushing traditionally.

The Modular Pumptrack is specifically designed to pack as much fun-per-square-meter, for as many users as possible, into one structure. The fundamental design principal being: to allow anyone, of any age, of any ability, riding any kind of wheeled sports equipment, to enjoy riding around the track, safety and comfortably.
