Start of construction work
Due to the corona measures, not a particularly festive moment for driving the first pile. The bottle of champagne remains closed. Still, it feels like a first milestone on the way to a beautiful, new pool. Alderman Klaas Valkering: :"I hoped to be able to celebrate this special moment together with the volunteers of the many associations that used De Beeck. They have been waiting for so long and I have a lot of respect for their patience and the creative way they have continued their activities. Unfortunately, corona threw a spanner in the works. But the pile has been hit and marks the official start of the construction work. "

The most sustainable swimming pool in the region
In addition to an indoor swimming pool with two pools, De Beeck consists of a sports hall, multifunctional rooms, youth center, billiard room, gym and council chamber. The building is being built under architecture, is almost 4 meters lower than the previous building and is also slightly further away from the apartment buildings next to the swimming pool. The new swimming pool will be completely energy neutral and there will no longer be a gas pipe for heating. Instead, use is made of, among other things 1.200 solar panels and even the heat from the shower water is reused. With this, Bergen is building the most sustainable swimming pool in the region.

If everything goes according to plan, can use the pool in March 2022 be put into use.
