Purpose and goal

The project´s purpose and aim were to bring together researchers, public sector and industry in areas such as construction and civil engineering in order to develop new and attractive overall solutions for swimming and bathing facilities, taking in to account the aggressive environment and high demands for materials, construction techniques and energy efficiency. This was fulfilled by including a well-attended workshop. The interest in the project has become very large. Articles about the project and workshop have been published in trade magazines and on websites.

Results and expected effects

The overall outcome of the project is that problems and needs for swimming and bathing facilities in Sweden now are partially mapped by joint efforts of scientists, industry and the public sector. This has in turn resulted in the fact that some hundred actors want to participate in a future Vinnova cooperative project to help solving the problems by further interaction with a focus on holistic and complete responsibility.

Approach and implementation

The project has focused on forming a consortium in order to develop joint ideas and proposals for comprehensive solutions for swimming and bathing facilities. A questionnaire survey concerning damage and needs has been carried out as well as a workshop. Results from the survey and workshop were compiled and an application to a Vinnova cooperative project has been produced.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
