The construction of a modern and sustainable swimming pool

A great project with quite some challenges: that is the construction of the new swimming pool in Rijssen (NL). For this project we supply the steel structure, the roof and wall cladding and the aesthetic facade grilles. We do this on behalf of construction consortium Akor-Draisma vof. The modern and sustainable swimming pool was designed by Reitsema & partners architects BNA.


The transport and assembly of the castellated beams, which will span the swimming pool with a length of more than thirty metres, is one of these challenges. Furthermore, the planning of the assembly will take some effort, because we want to carry out the work consecutively where possible, while also taking into account the planning of the other parties on site. We will start our assembly work in April 2022.


The steel structure will be treated with various types of coating. From a coating with the highest corrosivity class C5-M – because of the humid climate and the presence of chlorine vapours – to a C5 fire-resistant coating. The roof and wall cladding are also provided with finishes that have been specifically developed for use in swimming pools.


Meanwhile the engineering process has started, during which the steel structure is worked out in detail and calculated. Much attention is paid to the connection of steel and concrete. Our aim is to set the anchors for the steel structure in the cellar walls before the end of the year.
