Total renovation of the refrigeration plant - effects on the sauna area

The Chur sports facilities at the Obere Au site will be equipped with a new refrigeration system that will supply the Thomas Domenig Stadium, the outdoor ice rink and later the training ice rink. Work will begin on 26 March and will continue until the end of September 2019. The old facility is located in the basement of the sports facilities, where the sauna area is also located. Its operation will be maintained during the entire reconstruction phase, but visitors may be affected by noise and dirt emissions, especially in the initial phase. The sports facilities apologise in advance for any inconvenience and ask for your understanding.
