Stade de Beaublanc – design description
Complete revamp of the municipal stadium began in 2012 along the concept by Pierre Ferret. First phase saw the athletic track removed on three sides, leaving only the east stand. Two new stands are being built in the west and south sides of the stadium, expected to end in 2014.
No specific time frame for the remainder is set at this point. Though less than a half of the stadium was set for first phase, it already cost over €35 million, whle the city previously planned to deliver the entire stadium within €50 million.
Eventually the stadium is to form a unified domed structure. External cladding in bright white colour will see most triangular panels solid, while some will be translucent.
Anchor tenant for the stadium is rugby team USAL, however football tenancy is also held by Limoge FC.
