Dr. S.P. Mukherjee Swimming Stadium

Dr. S. P. Mukherjee Aquatics Complex will host Diving and Swimming events for the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi. The upgraded and renovated complex has the latest state-of-the-art facilities so as to meet the international standards required to host world-class aquatic events.

The complex now has the largest cohestrand supported, breathable, elliptical shaped aluminium roof with span of 150 m x 130 m, which is first of its kind in the world. The stadium is the largest covered aquatic stadium in the country having Olympic sized swimming and diving pools and six lanes’ warm up pool.

The venue has incorporated the passive design principles such as natural ventilation, natural light and insulation wherever possible. To achieve a higher level of thermal and sound comfort and energy efficiency, an 8 m deep eaves projection supported on a radial shear wall shades the glass facade.

The complex is located on the ridge forest area of Central Delhi and care has been taken so as to save a large number of trees, to maintain ecological sustainability.
