Work is underway to create the new south pavilion entrance to Coventry Building Society Arena ahead of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
It is the fourth stage in a multi-million-pound project to create the state-of-the-art Commonwealth Convention Centre at the venue.
The new south pavilion will be the main gateway to the convention centre and provide seamless access to the 7,750 square metres of indoor conference and exhibition space at the Arena.
Work already completed includes the renovation of the 6,000 square metre Indoor Arena, the aesthetic transformation of the existing 1,750 square metres of space beneath the Arena, which is now the convention centre, and the creation and launch of a popular new sports bar, The Anecdote.
When completed, the pavilion entrance will provide access to the new Convention Centre Lobby, an open plan multi-purpose reception space offering flexible options for event organisers.
The south pavilion is the centre-piece of the multi-million-pound redevelopment of the venue and will be clearly seen from Jimmy Hill Way.
The Commonwealth Convention Centre is set to open its doors in early 2022 as Coventry Building Society Arena gears up to host rugby sevens, judo and wrestling at the Commonwealth Games.
After the games, the convention centre will further cement the Arena as a modern, flexible and market-leading facility for the conference and exhibition industry.
