One of the best sports facilities of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. This is how the staff of the departmental university, the Military Sports Academy named after Kirov, located in St. Petersburg, calls its FOK. The project of the new building of the Department of Physical Training was developed by the architectural bureau "A2".


In 2015, an abandoned building of the unfinished computing center of the academy was located on the site of the FOCA. It was demolished and a modern sports and recreation complex was built in two years. The construction customer was the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, and the project was implemented by the company "Vertical".


The area of the building is 10 thousand square meters. The Sports Palace includes seven halls: for gymnastics, fitness, hand-to-hand combat, a room with simulators and classes for methodical classes with cadets. Also, a 25-meter swimming pool with four tracks with two towers for diving was built in the sports complex.


The three-storey building in the shape of the letter "E" consists of three blocks. The facades of the sports sections have panoramic glazing. At such facilities, special requirements are imposed on safety and the level of natural illumination. Therefore, preference was given to Pilkington Suncool® 70/40 Pro T glasses.

This is an architectural glass of maximum transparency and neutrality, with high sun protection properties. An excellent choice for buildings that require maximum natural light, for example, swimming pools and gyms.
