Better Conditions for Sports in Nuuk
In March 2016, 15 different sports and disciplines contested within the Arctic Winter Games in Nuuk, Greenland. An event that required high quality facilities for both sports and viewers.
With the purpose of meeting the international standards and requirements, a renovation of the existing sports facilities was initiated prior to the AWG 16. This included the preparation of the sites used to serve the many athletes and viewers. Fifty-two temporary containers were established with offices, WC and bathroom facilities and storage, which was used by viewers, participants and the organisers themselves. The containers were originally planned to be transported from Denmark and afterwards distributed across the city.
The improved sport conditions in Nuuk have not only been beneficial during the games in 2016 but they have also been valuable afterwards. Besides improved sports facilities meeting the international standards, Nuuk is now capable of hosting larger arrangements for approx. 1.700 people.
