Swimming Pool for athletic swimmers as well as beginners

Construction of a new school-, sports- and club swimming pool in Essen has started. At the starting ceremony, Mr Paß, Mayor of Essen, was enthusiastic about the wide majority with which a decision was taken that will “secure the interests of athletic swimmers as well as learners in school swimming classes”.

The 25 meter competition pool will have eight lanes, diving provisions, moveable floor, digital timing equipment and facilities for 530 spectators, 240 of which seated. The learning pool will also be provided with a completely moveable floor. Multi-purpose areas can be used for events, courses or sports.

The large internal glazing between the entrance area and the pool hall allows views into the hall and invites visitors to take a dive. Functionality and economy of the building were important during development, just energy-efficiency and design.
