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.
