Investors Group Field - 2014

SMS Engineering Limited

Investors Group Field is an open air stadium designed for sports and concert events with a capacity of up to 40,000 spectators. Integrating sophisticated lighting, public address systems, and innovative heating and cooling systems; it provides the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the University of Manitoba Bisons with a state-of-the-art playing field. Its primary design feature are the two 140 meter long trusses which support a canopy; these trusses are two of the largest in Canada that are not supporting a bridge. The roofs, which sit nearly 60 metres above the playing field, undulate to form a unique expression amongst the local flat landscape and act as acoustical lenses to amplify the ambient noise during an event.
