A lot of wood has also been used during the construction of this stadium. You can find a lot of wood-work around the rim and roof of the stadium. The architects and engineers that worked on this project were able to finish the construction of this stadium on-time despite all the setbacks that were faced by them during the whole process. One of those setbacks was scrapping of the whole plan that was first decided for the stadium as it was going way too above the desired budget. But the efficient team was able to beat all the challenges that came their way.
