VUC Syd adult education centre

Denmark
Haderslev
September 2017

The modern VUC Syd Haderslev education centre was built in the middle of the old harbour in the Danish coastal town of Haderslev on the basis of designs by AART Architects and ZENI Architects.

The associated sports facility with surfaces from Polytan is divided into three main elements: the synthetic turf playing field, the running track and the grassy embankment. The track is divided into another two areas: a conventional circular track and a considerably longer “off-road” section, which follows an uneven course. Both of these consist of the PolyPlay FS synthetic surface with a 40 mm base layer. The system of choice for the 645 m² playing field was LigaGrass Pro CoolPlus.

The sloping “residual areas” on the embankment between the two tracks were designed as “blue” and “orange” spaces for spectators, although they are both suitable for sporting activities as well. High steps (or seats) covered in “sky blue” synthetic surfacing made by Polytan are installed in the blue 62 m² spectator area. In contrast, the orange section covers an area of 90 m² and is fitted out with lots of tree stump stools. It took a lot of effort and expense to install the synthetic surfacing here due to the sloping base and the difficulty of sealing it around the stumps.
