Pumping station

The IOC is planning to install a pumping station to take lake water at a constant temperature (5 degrees) from a depth of 60 metres. The water will be used both to cool the building and to heat it by using heat pumps to reverse the process. This system is already being widely used in the area, with IMD, Nestlé and the Bellerive pool already equipped.

Solar panels

Solar panels on the roof will produce an amount of electricity equivalent to the consumption of 60 Swiss households. This electricity will allow the building to be self-sufficient in terms of its heating, ventilation, cooling and hot water systems.

Rainwater collection

A system to capture rainwater and the building’s grey water will be installed on the Olympic House site. The water collected will be used for plant irrigation purposes and for the Olympic House toilets.
