Project


The International School Frankfurt was founded due to the activities of the Chamber of Commerce of Frankfurt as well as several international operating firms as private school for children of mainly executive foreign staff.

The facility consists of preschool, preparatory and secondary schools with A-levels or international school leaving examinations. Furthermore, there is a swimming and sports hall, which is during teaching time at the pupil’s disposal, in the evenings at the disposal of local clubs. The swimming and sports hall can be used for minor competitions and therefore disposes of tribune areas.

Construction


The swimming and sports hall was constructed as a reinforced concrete/steel construction with separate joints to the main building. The stiffening is effected by clamped projecting reinforced beams in the basement on the longitudinal side of the hall. The front sides of the hall as well as the interior wall between swimming and sports hall consists of a steel construction, the roof consists of acoustic profiled sheetings on steel purlins and binders. Dressing, storage and plant rooms are situated under the passage round the swimming pool and the tribune. The swimming pool is made up of a reinforced concrete basin with separate joints to the hall.
