Sportplaza Mercator

Sport Plaza Mercator is a ultra-modern sports centre including a swimming pool, fitness centre, solarium, sauna and steam bath, day care centre, restaurants, banquet hall and a large recreational area. The swimming pool consists of a competition pool with adaptable base, a multipurpose pool and a therapeutic pool. Located on the outside area are a 50-meter basin and a small pool for children to play in. In the building there is also a multi-functional hall of 900 m2.


The complex is equipped with all possible energy saving measures. A ‘Wonder Wall’ is mounted on the facade, where various plants and shrubs give the accommodation its unique and ‘green’ appearance. Especially in the summer the green facade is a breathtaking splendour of brightly coloured plants and shrubs. This way an integral sport complex has been realized.

Herman De Groot Engineers has designed all the technology and guided the realization of this project.
