Concrete Architectur
Asocreto 2010

The great architectural challenge in this project was to maintain all the sports offer on the established terrain, respecting the restrictions and taking care of the forest reserve. For this, the designer architect located the activities under cover, one above the other, proposing different blocks connected by pedestrian bridges.

We implemented a metal structure with large spans to support the semi-Olympic pool located on the second level of the main building, on the multiple court. In addition, we use a pool water heating system, by means of solar panels with the support of a complementary system with heat pumps.

Its bioclimatic design with natural ventilation for all the spaces of the sports center, considerably reduced the use of ventilation and air conditioning equipment.
