Ben Vickery has thirty-five years’ experience in the design of sporting venues, both permanent and temporary and of related buildings and projects. With a keen interest in all sports, Ben’s design expertise includes stadiums for soccer, rugby football, athletics, venues for horse racing, and event overlay design. This experience has culminated in a great degree of knowledge of the standards and requirements for all sport building types. As a member of the CEN committee Ben assists the writing of technical standards for the design of sports buildings throughout Europe and is co-author of the 5th Edition of “Stadia: The Populous Design and Development Guide”, 2013, Routledge. He prides himself on the excellence of his many major projects: popular with their users, they operate successfully, they look great and are profitable for their clients. Each building must achieve the aims of the client and improve on the ones before. It should incorporate the best ideas and the latest technology, including current experience from elsewhere in the world, and innovative ideas specific to the project. Strongly committed to the power of collaboration, the success of these projects has been achieved through teamwork with clients, consultants, staff and all other authorities and stakeholders.
