In order adapt the installations of the municipal sports centre to an increase in usage requirements an ambitious, large scale project was considered, aimed at both improving and adapting existing building and putting up new ones. Because of its size this project was broken down into a number of phases, the overall purpose of which is to extend the site and improve the accesses and layout of the new facilities for the practice of sporting activities.
First of all a platform was erected at the site, on which a rectangular glazed block was then built, to house access control to the different areas of the sports centre, along with a lift providing access to the different floors.
On the exterior work then went ahead with the remodelling of an area that had previously been occupied by an outdoor swimming pool, for summer use, changing rooms and a bar with its terrace, in order to create two new pools, with partial advantage being taken of the changing rooms building and the original pool. The two new pools, measuring 18 m x 12.5 m and 18.9 m x 12.5 m respectively, have been equipped with a sliding enclosure system, which means that they can now be used all year round. For this intervention it was also necessary to install an underground level around both pools to house the necessary technical and maintenance equipment.
The remodelling of this area likewise allowed for the incorporation of new conveniences for users, such as the creation of a hydrotherapy area, plus a shallow end, for the use of small children, incorporating water play elements.
Another floor is to be added, above the new changing rooms, to house a gymnasium, a monitored activities area, spinning, etc. and also to provide the centre with a number of sporting services that are not presently available. This ambitious project is going to be completed with the addition of a new athletics track and a covered pavilion, facilities that will contribute to the creation of a fully equipped sports centre of outstanding size and quality.
