Mineirao Stadium, 2014


Each venue had its own specific challenges. At Barra Athletes’ Housing Complex and the Barra Sports Park Complex, the goal was to deter irrigation system vandalism and improve water efficiency. Twenty-five miles of subsurface dripline was installed underground, providing a highly efficient, vandal-proof alternative to aboveground irrigation sprays and rotors. At these two venues, the SSD is estimated to have reduced water consumption by at least 30 percent. Commercial controllers were also installed at these two properties to enable precision watering of various microclimates caused by areas of sun and shade. At the rugby pitches, rotors and 2- and 3-inch rain guns were chosen for their long throw radii.


Key Relationships & Support


With a focus on sustainability and its commitment to The Intelligent Use of Water™, Rain Bird helped these venues provide the world’s best soccer, hockey and rugby players with superior field conditions. Fans also got to enjoy beautiful, water- efficient green spaces in various sports complexes and city parks throughout Brazil.


According to Rain Bird Brazil’s Jose Giacoia Neto, a variety of factors helped his team successfully win the bids for these projects. Rain Bird Brazil’s team consists of high- level engineers with solid reputations throughout the country. A trusted distributor network provides local service throughout each sales territory, allowing the team to create unique solutions customized for each market and customer’s needs.
