New sports centre in Dornbirn (AT)

20 December 2019

In Dornbirn (Austria) a new sports complex for different sports has been built in an exhibition center. SPIETH Gymnastics helped to transform exhibition Hall 5 into a sports centre, which is mainly intended for apparatus gymnastics, trampoline gymnastics and TeamGym. Badminton can also be trained on 6 fields in Hall 5 in a separate area.

On about 1500 m2 a great training hall for gymnastics has been created, on which more than 100 children can perform at the same time. There is newly installed various gymnastics equipment as well as a 60 m2 large landing pit. The different gymnastics equipment is available several times in the gym and placed in different areas. On the one hand, they are positioned next to the landing pits for methodological training and on the other hand the apparatuses are also available in the mat area for training under competition conditions. The equipment has been carefully selected so that both basic gymnastics and competitive gymnastics can be trained. Under one roof and with the focus to approach the youngest in gymnastics, height-adjustable apparatuses have also been installed.

The challenge in designing this project was to keep the equipment and mats dismountable for fairs in spring and autumn twice a year. This special feature has already been taken into account during the planning process. Already at the World Gymnaestrada in summer 2019 and at the autumn fair, the new Hall 5 passed the first acid test very well. 

In total 3 SPIETH technicians were on site for more than 2 weeks to complete this club hall in Austria.
