Project 7: France, Swimming Pool in Montpellier

  • Country: France
  • Airium application: Airium used as a lightweight filling and sloping solution (450 kg/m3) in the swimming pool in Montpellier
  • Customer: City of Montpellier
  • Surface: 500 m³
  • Why was Airium chosen: To reduce the heating costs of its swimming pool, the city authorities decided to reduce the depth from 4 to 2 m. The load brought on the existing structure needed to be limited.
  • What was the impact: Lower weight than lightweight concrete, less waste (VS polystyrene beads concrete), easy to slope, less CO2 intensive, more insulating than alternatives.
