Hightex wins stadium roof contract

Stadium roof specialist Hightex has won a contract to provide the façade and supporting steel structure for the 2010 World Cup stadium in Cape Town, South Africa.

The London-based company and consortium partner Mostostal Zabrze, a Polish steel fabricator and construction company, will build the 30,000 sq m PTFE and glass membrane façade and steel structure for Green Point Stadium.

The project, which is worth around £4.1 million to Hightex, is scheduled for completion in 2009.

Chairman Charles DesForges said: "Hightex is now involved in two of the four stadia, which will be used in the 2010 FIFA Football World Cup, the other one being the stadium roof of the First National Bank Stadium in Johannesburg."
