Officials in Montserrat wanted to develop the sport of basketball in their region and were looking to build an arena that could be engineered to withstand high wind loads while meeting all of their other various budget and project needs. Sprung was able to deliver.
HOW SPRUNG DELIVERED
The Sprung structure on Montserrat is 100’ wide by 187.5’ long, and its membrane is terminated at an 8-foot height level to allow for increased air circulation. The arena also contains a small office space, bathrooms and changing rooms.
In December 2014, the Montserrat Sports Arena hosted a regional basketball tournament, with seven teams from various islands competing. The tournament saw full-capacity crowds, and in the end, the Montserrat Volcanoes were the champions.
