Aviva Stadium


Aviva Stadium, a prominent landmark building, is located adjacent to Lansdowne Road railway station. It officially opened its doors on 14 May 2010 and boasts a seating capacity of 51,711 spectators. This remarkable stadium holds the distinction of being Ireland’s first and only UEFA Category 4 Stadium. In 2011, it had the honor of hosting the Europa League final, further solidifying its reputation as a premier sporting venue.


The Aviva Stadium has been a host for various notable events, including the inaugural Nations Cup and serving as the regular home ground for the national rugby team, national football team, and selected home fixtures for Leinster Rugby since August 2010.


Rainey played a crucial role in ensuring the successful completion of essential work at the Aviva Stadium. A focal point of our involvement was the critical task of earthing the stadium. We approached this with meticulous care and attention, prioritizing the mitigation of step potential concerns associated with the earthing of the steel frame. By addressing these concerns, we aimed to enhance the safety and functionality of the stadium’s overall lightning protection system.


Rainey’s commitment to delivering exceptional results enabled us to contribute to the overall success of the Aviva Stadium, ensuring its readiness to host memorable sporting events while maintaining the highest standards of safety and performance.
