In a 2014 article we described the structural design for the roof structure of the Suita Stadium. In the present article we report on the construction of the stadium (Ohno [1]). Since the Suita Stadium construction project was funded by donations from individuals and corporations, there was a strong need to ensure the efficient use of the fund. We had to pursue cost-effectiveness not only when determining the sectional design of structural members composing the roof, but also when choosing materials used in the construction of temporary structures. In developing the erection plan we tried to maximize the sizes of field-assembled pieces, in order to minimize the number of mega supports for the steel roof and the number of welding operations needing to be performed in high places. This paper provides a description of the roof structure design and reports on how the steel frame roof structure was constructed.
