Cantilever UHPC swimming pool for a singular house in Valencia

UHPC Applications RDC cantilevers 1


In 2021, RDC designed a 12-m swimming pool with 8-m of cantilever to be installed in a singular house in Chiva (Valencia). Conceiving this structure with UHPC allowed to minimize the dead load of the solution, so the depth of the element was optimized and it became slenderer.

Why to use UHPC?

contained in it, something not viable with a solution made with ordinary concrete. The optimization of the weight is not only beneficial for architectural reasons, but to facilitate the transport and commissioning of the solution.


  • High slenderness for the significant load of the water.
  • Improved durability compared to other alternatives.


  • First UHPC swimming pool built up to now.

More Projects with UHPC


RDC works closely with the client to evaluate the technical, economical and environmental viability of replacing its current solution by UHPC. A tailored premix of Formex® is proposed to maximize the competitiveness of the new element.



UHPC Applications


RDC helps the client to make real the use of UHPC in the daily industrial production. The team supports in stages as the scale-up of the production, the resolution of bottlenecks and the implementation of the quality control plan.





UHPC (Ultra-High Performance Concrete) is an extremely compact and ductile cementitious composite. Its properties make it perfect for applications where durability or maintenance play a significant role, where a lightweight structure is particularly relevant, or where the slenderness or thickness of piece is is important.
