Bouygues along with Dalkia-EDF and Recrea has been chosen by Métropole du Grand Paris to construct the Paris 2024 Aquatic Centre in Saint-Denis, at EUR 174 million cost. French architecture firm Ateliers 2/3/4 and Dutch agency VenhoevenCS worked on the design. The project was backed after assessing its architectural quality, functionality and environmental impact. The chosen project will see the construction of a venue 30 metres high and 100m in length and width. The building will have a curved shape and wooden surface, with the swimming pool set to be 70 metres in length.

A mobile platform will allow for the swimming pool to be separated, allowing two pools with the size and the depth being adaptable. It is claimed the mobile platforms could also allow for three pools, with two 25m lengthwise and the third in the width direction.

The facility is expected to have a 6,000 capacity, with artistic swimming, diving and water polo set to take place at the venue during the Olympic Games.

During the Games the pool will be 50 metres in length for artistic swimming and water polo events, with the diving pool being 22m by 25m.

The venue will also be used during the Paralympic Games, with Boccia set to be held in the facility.

The capacity will be reduced to 2,500 after the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Olympic Aquatic Centre will remain as a permanent venue following the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
