Kinn kommune (Kinn municipality)
Havhesten in Kinn municipality has been completely rehabilitated. The swimming pool appears as new, and state-of-the-art, with a fully automated technical system. And what a view!
On Monday 2 November, Havhesten in Kinn opened its doors again after one year of rehabilitation. The goal is to, once again, be the most visited public bath in Sogn- og Fjordane.
The old facility was undersized for today's visitor numbers. It had poor energy utilization, was poorly maintained and the technical facility needed an upgrade. In addition, the current requirements for universal design were not met.
The public pool facilities now appears as new and state-of-the-art, with a fully automated technical system. In addition, there is a modern office space, café, conference room and a separate entrance for schools.
When rehabilitating existing facilities, the limitations of existing buildings must be taken into account.
In order to increase the capacity of the swimming pool, the number of inlet nozzles and gutter downspouts has been increased, to be able to move a larger amount of circulation. The water treatment system have been given a dedicated flushing tank, which together with Enwa Heat Saver contributes to increased energy savings. The leveling tank for the main pool has also been expanded to remove all the overflow water.
The project has been carried out as a client-driven contract.
