New Swimming Arena Krems

Investment budget: 24.000.000 €

Service(s): Basic investigation


At the municipal council meeting in September 2019, the City of Krems an der Donau decided to build a new swimming arena in Krems. The entire project area lies between the B3 state road in the north, the Danube in the south and the railway bridge in the east. The new indoor swimming pool is to become the central element of the new sports and leisure area.

The feasibility study includes, among other, the coordinated creation of a Schedule of Accommodation and Functional Programme, the planning of deadlines, costing according to ÖNORM 1801-1, as well as the formulation of a quality framework. This included exploring synergy effects with the neighbouring sports hall in Krems, for example, joint accessibility, energy supply and gastronomy. In addition to this study, project-relevant documents were collected and catalogued.

The feasibility study served as the basis for the relevant committee decision and was used as the basis for the subsequent architecture competition.
