How modern airdome architecture and the fun of swimming can be combined is impressively demonstrated by the new airdome (HPG Memhall®) of HP Gasser AG in Zuchwil.
Specially for the Zuchwil Sports Center, HP Gasser AG has designed an HPG Memhall® that makes the fun of swimming possible even during the winter months. The 50-meter pool in the Zuchwil swimming center can be weatherproofed for this purpose with a largeHPG Memhall®. This provides the opportunity to swim laps on any day, even during the cold season.
The project was implemented by HP Gasser AG in the form of a modern airdome. In the process, the specialists from the company’s membrane construction division really did a great job. With a hall volume of 14,000 cubic meters and dimensions of 58 x 24 meters, the hall creates a generous space for recreational swimmers and athletes. The hall height of over nine meters creates space upwards and impresses with the airy expanse.
With the new HPG Memhall® from HP Gasser AG in Zuchwil, water temperatures of around 27 degrees can be easily maintained even in the winter months. The temperature in the room should still be slightly above this and is ensured by the waste heat from the nearby ice rink and by the supply of renewable district heating.
Every year in September, HP Gasser AG overbuilds the 50-meter swimming pool with the comfortable HPG Memhall®, ensuring full enjoyment until April. Then the pool will be available for ambitious athletes as well as for active recreational athletes. In April, the hall is then dismantled again and the pool looks forward to the numerous visitors in the summer season.
With the HPG Memhall® for the Zuchwil Sports Center, HP Gasser AG has once again impressively demonstrated what modern membrane structures and an efficient company can achieve. Those who until now knew an airdome only as a storage hall can be proven wrong here. Attached to the airdome, by the way, are separate changing rooms and catering facilities for the water sports enthusiasts. In the video you can also see the airdome project in detail.
By the way, when modern membrane construction projects go hand in hand with attractive recreational facilities, it always brings a benefit to the people and athletes in the region. Just like the HPG Memhall® of the Zuchwil Sports Center, which already documents what HP Gasser AG is capable of because of its imposing size.
