SPORTS COMPLEX: THE ALL-IN-ONE SOLUTION
SMC2, as a designer and builder of turnkey sports structures, puts its know-how at the service of the construction of sports complexes.
CONSTRUCTION OF SPORTS COMPLEXES, FOR A MULTIDISCIPLINARY PRACTICE
Having a sports complex in your community means being able to offer its inhabitants a variety of sports facilities within the same building.
At SMC2, we create sports complexes that include different types of spaces adapted to different sports practices:
- sports halls dedicated to dynamic sports such as team sports (football, basketball, handball, etc.) or racquet sports (badminton, tennis, padel, etc)
- sports halls dedicated to specialised sports such as martial arts, dance or gymnastics
But not only that! For a complete sports experience, we complete our sports complexes with changing rooms, sanitary facilities and/or clubhouses to offer comfort to the sportsman before, during and after his session. Grandstands can also be added for a moment of sharing between athletes and spectators.
A SPORTS COMPLEX ADAPTED FOR COMFORT AND SAVINGS
The advantage of having a sports complex is the adaptability of the different sports areas to the expectations of the sportsmen and women and to the playing conditions of each sport.
Dancing or basketball, for example, do not involve the same heating of the body and therefore do not have the same heating requirements. Having a sports complex makes it possible to meet the thermal needs of the sportsmen and women in an adapted way. The dynamic sports hall only needs to be tempered for comfortable and environmentally friendly sports. With the right clothing and thanks to the physical effort produced, the body warms up by itself. In addition, our hygrothermal regulation system allows the atmosphere to be tempered and provides thermal comfort for team and racquet sports. In the dynamic sports hall, acoustic and light comfort also awaits the athletes. Thanks to the textile membrane, present on the roof and/or on the facades, natural light illuminates the sports building during the day. However, its white colour reflects the sun’s rays, to avoid too much heat accumulation. The natural ventilation installed in our sports complexes, coupled again with our efficient hygrothermal regulation system, avoids the need for air conditioning without suffering from heat. In addition, the flexibility of the stretched fabric prevents sound reverberation.
Specialised sports halls, on the other hand, need to be at a higher temperature. As the spaces are often smaller than multi-sports gyms, heating only that room rather than the whole complex will be less energy consuming. To achieve this, the building must be perfectly insulated, which is why these spaces are generally built in CLT or timber frame, and not covered by a textile membrane.
A SUSTAINABLE SPORTS COMPLEX
Our sports complexes are built with a wooden framework. Wood is a noble material that allows CO2 to be absorbed, thus limiting the environmental impact of the sports structure. The combination of our mottos “Less is more” and “No CO2, Low Energy” qualifies our desire to offer sports buildings that are cleaner for the environment by limiting energy consumption during construction and operation, and therefore by limiting the use of materials to what is strictly necessary.
Better management of lighting and heating needs means making savings during operation but also doing something for the environment. It is time to commit to the preservation of our planet by opting for greener sports solutions and adopting more responsible behaviour.
