Modernization with a sustainable touch

The emblematic swimming pool of Les Comes in Igualada is undergoing an innovative transformation, focused on sustainability and energy efficiency. The works, which are at an advanced stage, include the installation of water savers, timers and presence detectors in various spaces, as well as changing the wooden and glass shutters on the windows to optimize energy efficiency

Improvement of structure and efficiency

Municipal sources have reported that the works are progressing at a good pace, transforming both the structure of the changing rooms and the pool itself. This commitment to improving sustainability and efficiency also includes the renovation of the changing room area and reception, with a strong focus on improving accessibility and adaptability.

Comprehensive rehabilitation with an inclusive vision

Patrícia Illa, Councilor for Sports in Igualada, highlights the modernization as an opportunity to optimize not only energy efficiency but also accessibility. With various actions, such as the installation of ramps, adapted services and a lift, the pool will gain in comfort and be more accessible for everyone, including people with reduced mobility.

Adapted showers and sustainable water management

One of the important improvements includes the remodeling of the shower area, with showers adapted for people with reduced mobility. Each changing room will offer 14 showers, with two of them adapted. The project also stands out for the sustainable management of water, where the water from the pool, when emptied by interventions, is transferred to a phreatic water tank in the Central Park for use in irrigation and cleaning.

Reopening and financial support

With a total investment of 1,155,139.16 euros, the comprehensive rehabilitation project has the support of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan (PRTR) of the European Union – Next Generation EU, in collaboration with the Ministry of Transport , Mobility and Urban Agenda. The renovated and efficient swimming pool is scheduled to reopen in March, offering an updated, sustainable and efficient space to its users.
