Abstract: As part of the implementation of its aquatic centre, the city of Saint Nazaire chose the lightness, transparency and brightness of the design of COSTE Architectures agency. BSI®, the UHPFRC developed by Eiffage Group, was selected for its mechanical properties and its high durability, to meet the technical and architectural requirements of such a project in an aquatic environment. The architect will of purifying the space led him to a solution with 40 slender columns. The three basin roofs are supported by a mesh of 40 structural columns, with a height from 3 to 10 m, made with the steel fibres BSI® UHPFRC mix. Non-structural but ornamental vertical elements, with an advanced design and extreme fineness, punctuate the large bay window along the hall basins. They are made with synthetic fibres BSI® formula.
