In addition, the Espai Barça Project entails building a new Palau Blaugrana with a capacity of 12,500, an additional training court with a capacity of 2,000, an international ice rink, a new social area, a new commercial area, revamped Club offices, La Masia and underground parking facilities serving over 3,200 vehicles. The project to remodel the Camp Nou will cost €360 million and the cost of the entire project is budgeted at €600 million. This session will examine the security aspects that were taken into consideration for the project, including:

  • Managing high density of crowds outside entry gates – and ensuring the smooth flow of people
  • Designing the funnel points to ensure control of who enters
  • Physical perimeter hardening to prevent vehicle-borne attacks
