As sports and leisure activities are one of SMC2’s key sectors, we are able to offer local authorities solutions that are both adapted to their projects and to the specificities of the targeted disciplines: combat and racket sports, basketball, handball, skateboarding, swimming, gymnastics, or even ice skating, to name but a few.
Whether it is for the construction of covered open-air pitches or indoor complexes including changing rooms and clubhouses, SMC2 favours materials such as wood, textile and metal that are as efficient as they are economical and environmentally friendly. Indeed, their advantages and characteristics are as much at the service of communities as of players and their public.


Discover the advantages of SMC2 solutions for sports and leisure activities:


Comfortable lighting
Thanks to the homogeneous natural lighting of the textile cover during the day, the game flows smoothly for players and spectators who are no longer bothered by glare or shadows. With an average of 800 lux of daylight per year, communities can reduce their electricity consumption and make valuable savings.


Acoustic comfort
The textile membrane greatly reduces the phenomena of reverberation and echoes, and also provides additional comfort in terms of acoustics. This feature is particularly appreciated in places with a large audience. No more shrill whistles or piercing noises from your soles!


Thermal comfort
The combined action of wood and textile gives buildings excellent thermal insulation due to their intrinsic characteristics. They allow significant energy savings in the heating of the various spaces.
In order to provide local authorities with solutions that meet both their needs and their budget, SMC2 offers two types of indoor buildings: the heated room (up to 16/18°C) and the tempered room (heated up to 12°C, which allows for energy savings of up to 50% compared to a traditional gymnasium).


Hygrometric comfort
Wood is a material that breathes. In combination with an adequate ventilation system, it naturally contributes to good air quality and humidity regulation. These characteristics are particularly important for public areas and changing rooms where the humidity level can be high with the use of showers.
