Reims Aqualudic complex

Located on a former railway wasteland of 7 ha, the future equipment will make up for the closure of the old aquatic center (due to problems of obsolescence and safety). The new multi-activity center, which will open in 2022, will include both an Olympic-sized swimming pool, which will host competitions including international, and an indoor ice rink and trail of ice outside.

For Optimal Solutions, which will carry out the work of the HVAC lot, the Design Office PHOSPHORIS A. GARNIER realized:

  • The design and implementation studies of the Heating-Ventilation-Air Conditioning and Mechanical Smoke systems of the ice rink and swimming pool.
  • All the blueprints in BIM format (3D model).
