Singer Michael Buble officially opened the new National Indoor Arena in Birmingham last night following a gigantic build project that has include a multi-million investment in new catering and hospitality facilities.
The NIA, which will now be known as the Barclaycard Arena, has been completely redeveloped at a cost of £26m. Its capacity has been increased, concourse areas extended and the interiors refurbished as part of a move to make it one of the country’s best indoor arenas.
It has also improved its food and drink offering, including the launch of two brand new restaurants.
The foodservice aspect of the project has been handled by Inox Equip, which has been involved in the development for more than three years.
It initially sat on the design team as the catering consultant before being awarded the catering fit-out contract by BAM Construction.
The project is the largest that the Buckingham-based CEDA distributor has ever delivered.
