On October 12, 2014, the first Formula One Grand Prix took place in Sochi, Russia. Geobrugg has been assigned the task of building the fences around the circuit and protecting the 65'000 spectators.
Geobrugg was responsible for coordinating, planning, producing and supervising the installation of the fence. In total, 40’000 m2 security fences were built along the race track in Sochi by installing Geobrugg Panelized Debris Fence, Geobrugg Debris Fence and Pit Wall Fence according to FIA guidelines.
Swiss TV SRF reported in its business magazine program „ECO“ about the project and escorted Geobrugg in the process from production to approval in Sochi. Watch it here (in German only): Geobrugg secures race track in Sochi
