The stadium has an elliptical dome consisting of 120 folded plates (precast) of varying cross-section (average 2m) with the plate thickness of 40mm and series of inter-connected ribs. The lower end of the dome is supported on the elliptical ring beam at 8m level which in-turn is supported on 24 equally spaced arch columns. The top of the dome is supported on elliptical ring of 16m x 8m at 29m level. A small elliptical paraboloid in-situ dome of 4m height and having a series of interconnected stiffeners is resting on the top ring. The folded plate spans about 40m between the two rings. The seating galleries are precast while the other cubicles are in-situ.
