SMC2 is a designer and builder of multi-sports facilities. We take care to offer you infrastructures that meet the needs of various sports: tennis, football, basketball, padel… We master the art of building halls dedicated to certain sports (such as tennis halls or 5-a-side football pitches) as well as the art of building multi-sports gymnasiums.

Expertise in the construction of multi-purpose gymnasiums

Year after year, SMC2 enriches its expertise in the construction of dynamic sports halls. Since 2003, our team has been working daily to respond effectively to your needs by combining simplicity and functionality.

Our gymnasiums allow the practice of multiple sports, both team and racquet: basketball, handball, volleyball, badminton, futsal, etc. They are built with a wooden or mixed wood and steel structure with a textile membrane roof. You benefit from a sports structure with a low environmental impact and optimal natural light. The translucency of the textile membrane allows the sun’s rays to illuminate the sports field evenly and harmoniously.

Gymnase Verrieres en Anjou

A gymnasium designed for the comfort of the athlete

As a gymnasium builder, SMC2 thinks about the comfort of sportsmen and women in summer and winter. That is why we favour wood and textile membranes as the main building materials.

Wood does not store cold and heat, while the textile membrane reflects the sun’s rays. The façades of the gymnasium can be opened for natural ventilation or closed to prevent heat loss. We also install a hygrothermal regulation system within the sports complex. This system allows us to have a regulated temperature in the gymnasium. Heating in winter is now an option rather than an obligation! These are undeniable savings for the operator.

An eco-responsible gymnasium

In a context of urgency and climate change, it seems essential to us to rethink our sports buildings in order to promote the construction of sports complexes that fit into the local landscape by limiting the negative environmental impact and avoiding over-consumption of energy.

The textile membrane we use has an albedo rate close to 1, meaning that it reflects the sun’s rays, thus preventing the building from overheating and helping to combat rising temperatures in urban areas.

During the winter, we recommend that dynamic sports halls are not heated or that the heating temperature is limited to 12°C. The heat produced by the body during sports effort prevents the athlete from feeling cold. In addition, the athlete adapts to the temperature constraints by the clothing he or she adopts.

We have several gymnasium projects to our credit. To discover our know-how in concrete terms, browse through our projects:
