Building of the Month in July 2013

Astron swimming pool in Italy

This modern steel construction for leisure purposes was erected in Cologno al Serio (Italy) by Astron Builder TEOREMA STUDIO srl who put together a construction package that offered the best combination of speed of construction, price and quality.  The swimming pool belongs to the Sport and Leisure Center of the Italian city Cologno al Serio and has been chosen as the most attractive steel construction from the buildings that took part in the Building of the Month contest in July.

 The 2,955m² steel construction combines an attractive external look with functionality and respects of the special norms with particular technical attention has been given to the protection of purlins in humid environment and in general, to the specific activity of the indoor pool.

The building has to be tested in “real conditions” in order to get the approvals for public buildings.  The erected structure was loaded prior to finish. The future load was represented by heavy sacks (filled with water having a total weight of 20,7 tons !) suspended from one frame. This impressive test made it very tangible what the snow load can represent on the roof surface!

The efficient service and reliability of Astron Builder - TEOREMA STUDIO, as well as the high quality of the Astron building system contributed to the client’s great satisfaction with the project.
