Blütenbad Leichlingen – Sustainably Certified Swimming Pool Complex Opened

After only 1.5 years of construction, a new indoor swimming pool was opened in the blossom town of Leichlingen (Rhineland) at the beginning of February. The Blütenbad Leichlingen, which was planned and realized by POS4 Architekten from Düsseldorf together with Pellikaan Bau Deutschland GmbH (as general contractor), offers a 25-meter swimming pool with six lanes and a lifting floor, a learning pool with a lifting floor, a toddler pool and a small indoor spray park as well as a sauna area (with steam bath, panorama sauna, relaxation area and a covered outdoor terrace with Kneipp pool). The owner of the project is the Leichlinger Bäderbetriebs und Beteiligungs GmbH, and the Constrata Ingenieursgesellschaft GmbH has been responsible for the project management.

“The Blütenbad Leichlingen is sustainably planned and built. It meets the sustainability criteria of ecological, economic and socio-cultural quality to a high degree. The sustainable construction method guarantees users and the operator greater comfort and lower operating costs and makes a significant contribution to the future viability of the pool,” said the Deutsche Gesellschaft für das Badewesen (German Association for the Bathing Industry), (DGfdB), which awarded the new building the “Sustainable Swimming Pool” distinction.

Thanks to modern equipment and technical solutions, the indoor pool facility is said to also meet the latest energy efficiency requirements for swimming pools. According to the planners, the time and cost framework was adhered to despite difficult circumstances (pandemic, flooding in the construction area, amongst others). The construction costs amounted to just under eleven million euros. (eap)
