Pieter van den Hoogenband stadion

The objective of the city of Eindhoven was to develop a swimming stadium where national and international sport could be practiced.

The Pieter van den Hoogenband Stadium consists of two parts: The Pieter van den Hoogenband Swim Stadium for competitive swimming and a recreational area for the public. There are four pools in total, with a combined volume of 12 million cubic meter.

It is one of the largest swimming complexes of Europe.

The Pieter van den Hoogenband Stadium has a pool for competitive use that is 50 meters long, a pool with a diving tower and a unique practice pool. The training pool is used by elite swimmers because of the pools ability to measure and record all of the swimmers activity with camera feed. The various pools have adaptable bases, underwater cameras and timing registration.
The existing recreational pool has been completely renovated.

The refurbished pool as well as the new pool is equipped with every energy saving measure possible. Besides gas as an energy supply there is also a bio plant installed. Herman De Groot has designed all energy saving measures and the technology for the Pieter van den Hoogenband Stadium.
