Snowflex® Slope announced for the capital of Turkey.
Hot on the heels of the success in the Winter Olympics in Sochi Briton Engineering Developments is delighted to announce it has signed a contract to design and build the first major Snowflex® slope on the Asian continent. The slope will be a key attraction for the Sinpas Group and their prestigious Altinoran development in Ankara, Turkey.
The Altinoran project is an outstanding development combining 10,300 residential units with a total building area of 1,850,000m2. Located in Çankaya, a most prestigious district in Ankara, the Altinoran Project with its impressive social facilities, is Turkey's largest residential Project.
In addition to the 10,000m2 (107,640sqft) Snowflex® slopes that will be one of the central attractions to the development, other amenities will include Central Square where events and concerts will take place, an ice rink, hiking trails, a climbing centre, fitness areas, nature trails, cable car system as well as a multitude of stylish cafés, bars and restaurants and prestigious shopping for Altinoran's residents.
Over the coming months the Altinoran landscape will receive a monumental makeover with the construction of the year-round Snowflex® ski slope. The main slope which will cater for recreational snowsporters and adrenaline junkies alike will be approx. 200m long x 45m wide, and the nursery slope will 30m x 30m. It is envisaged that tubing will also take place on the nursery slope.
The main slope will include a series of kickers, a table top, rollers, waves, a 4m high quarter pipe and a rail park - features such as those built by Briton around the world that has already produced world class and Olympic athletes. A ski lodge will also be built, permitting parties and other special events. Construction is due to begin in May 2014 with an anticipated grand opening in October 2014.
Terry Di Stasi, Briton's Director of Business Development, added that Briton is thrilled to be part of such impressive and prestigious development and the slopes would undoubtedly add to the appeal of the Sinpas Group development in Ankara. Di Stasi added that this first project would be seen as a prominent showroom for Snowflex® throughout Turkey which would undoubtedly produce world class Olympics snowsports athletes in the coming years.
