The project, receiving 77.02 million yuan ($11.02 million) in investment, mainly involves the renovation of the stadium and sports centre, the construction of temporary rooms for sporting events, the modification of power supply facilities, and a number of supporting outdoor projects.

The stadium consists of an audience area, VIP area, television rebroadcast area, competition management area, athlete area, and volleyball court. It is expected to hold around 7,105 people.

In addition, the sports centre is required to meet volleyball competition standards, with a venue operation area, a competition management area, a security and transportation area, a media area, and two warm-up halls for volleyball competitions being built.

Renovations started two months after the preliminary design was approved in an effort to make up for time lost due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The goal set by the Hangzhou Asian Games Organising Committee and Hangzhou municipal government was achieved.
