Sports performance centre Altenberg: a place for elite sport

Altenberg in Saxony/Germany is a mecca of winter sports: From February 17 to March 1 the bobsleigh and skeleton World Championships took place there . Currently OBERMEYER is planning an ultra-modern performance center for Olympic sports in Altenberg.
It will be one of the most modern competitive sports centres in Germany and it is being built on the area of the Glückauf-Gymnasium. The centre will offer training facilities for biathlon, bobsleigh, skeleton, luge and mountain biking. A new triple sports hall has already been built as part of the first construction phase. OBERMEYER was commissioned with the general planning of the performance center within the scope of a VOF-procedure. Construction was scheduled to start in 2017.
In addition to training and administration rooms, a combined shooting and running hall as well as a two-part push-start track for bobsleigh, skeleton and luge will be built.

Building structure and geographical location represent a planning challenge. The approximately 115m long, two-storey building section with underground access to the training centre was particularly demanding. This building contains the two push-track lines with a gradient of up to 25.5 %. Elastic rails are to be used in the bobsleigh area. In the toboggan/skeloton area, a floor covering with corresponding suitability is planned, which, among other things, will also place increased demands on the evenness of the concrete surface.

The surrounding buildings directly bordering the building site also ensure very limited construction site conditions. As a result, immission control must also fulfill stringent requirements.
