Daniel Suter (Director of Campus Sursee), Guido Graf (Member of the Government Council), Werner Messmer (President of the Foundation Board of Campus Sursee), Werner Roth (Mayor of Oberkirch)In the presence of government councillor and sports minister Guido Graf, mayor Ernst Roth from Oberkirch and general planner and architect Rolf Mühlethaler, Werner Messmer, former National Councillor and President of the Sursee Campus Foundation Board, symbolically broke ground with a solar excavator. The presence of representatives from the federal government, canton, municipality and associations shows the importance of this meticulously planned, complex large-scale project, which will ultimately also have a lasting impact on the sporting orientation of the Lake Sempach region.comparable projects in Bern, Basel, Fribourg, Winterthur, Kreuzlingen and other Swiss cities have already failed in the planning phase in recent years. This made it all the more important for the current project to make far-sighted decisions with the involvement of the most important stakeholder groups. The milestones of land acquisition, rezoning, crop rotation area replacement, architectural competition, project planning, financing, building permit and awarding the construction contract to the general contractor Implenia were only possible in a comparatively short time thanks to the commitment of all those involved.Daniel Suter, Director of Campus Sursee, is confident that the construction phase, which has now been launched with the ground-breaking ceremony, and the subsequent operation can be implemented successfully in business terms: "We want to prove that an indoor swimming pool can be operated in an energetically smart and economically sustainable way. This has required a lot of persuasion over the past four years. I would describe the complex decision-making and approval procedures as the biggest hurdle. But we managed to get the project ready for construction in an unprecedentedly short time. "The fact that the client is a private-law institution for the first time for an indoor swimming pool project of this size seems to be a key success factor. The Campus Sursee Foundation of the Swiss Association of Master Builders is acting as a private investor with CHF 50 million. The Swiss Confederation is contributing CHF 4 million (NASAK 4) and the Canton of Lucerne CHF 4 million (sports fund) to the investment volume. In this private-public partnership, the private partner assumes responsibility for the economic provision of services in a delegation of responsibility, while the public sector ensures that goals oriented towards the common good are achieved. At the official ground-breaking ceremony, everyone had the last opportunity to meet "on the green field" before the excavators roll in on October 3. The new sports arena is due to open at the end of 2018.
