The project consisted in the renovation of the competition pool (50 x 25 x 3 meters) and the training pool (50 x 25 x 2 meters), as well as the refurbishment and extension of the diving pool (20 x 25 x 5 meters).

For the diving pool, the project included the renovation of the pool’s coping using Skypool galvanized steel panels 1.2 meters in height, plus the walkway, the sparger and agitation systems.
