Health and safety first!
Health and safety are very important at Sports & Culture. In places where people work out hard and play sports, good hygiene and the prevention of bacterial growth are of vital importance. Recently the new shower and changing rooms have been put into use at Sports & Culture. In the interest of preventing legionella, a pasteurization-system has been installed in the water installations; an innovative system that is used throughout the university.
From outdoor pool to indoor changing room
We are standing in one of the new changing rooms. In the old situation, this space was an outdoor area between two existing buildings. Just before the summer the construction started. Shortly after that we had some heavy rain and the site looked more like a swimming pool than a construction site. Luckily it all worked out well in the end.
