Mondovì (Cuneo): energy and structural upgrading of the municipal swimming pool

Mondovi’s municipal swimming pool, built in the 1970s, has undergone major energy, structural and aesthetic upgrading to make it a nearly zero fossil fuel energy building (nZEB) under the PROSPECT 2030 project implemented with 2014/2020 ERDF funds.

The municipal swimming pool of Mondovì, built in the 1970s, has now undergone a major energy, structural and aesthetic redevelopment to make it a building with almost zero energy consumption from fossil fuels (nZEB) as part of the PROSPECT 2030 project implemented with European funds.

As a whole, the facility was in fairly good condition, although it was a very energy-intensive building, resulting in high running costs to ensure a normal standard of heating.
The project foresaw a complete renovation of the building, with significant intervention on the load-bearing structures and related elements, on the existing installations and on the architectural finishing elements.

The improvement of the building’s energy performance required an increase in the insulation of the building envelope, as well as the reduction of the existing glass surfaces, especially on the cooler sides, and their replacement with new walls with better insulation performance.

Another important part of the project is the complete replacement of the roof covering of the large pool – rebuilt with glulam load-bearing beams -, the children’s pool and their insulation package.
The edge of the large pool was also raised to bring its depth into line with federal regulations for regional competitions.
