Klettaskóli primary school in Öskjuhlíð for the disabled

Annex containing a gym and swimming facilities

The project involved the complete design of an annex to the school and the renovation of existing buildings, a total of 6,000 m2. Located in the annex is, for example, a new gym and swimming facilities with two swimming pools and hot tubs, along with associated shower facilities and dressing rooms. The facilities are designed with the reduced mobility of its users in mind, and is therefore particularly complex due to equipment and technical solutions. One of the pools is a specifically designed training pool for the handicapped and is  equipped with a height adjustable base. The building is designed using BIM 3D methodology.
