The work is part of the wider program of redevelopment of the entire complex aimed at swimming and water polo competitions that will take place in the venue for the competitions of the 2019 Universiade, a complex that will have to be redeveloped, with a new organizational functional and performance framework regulated by the provisions of FISU.

The interventions in the project, identified in the technical-economic feasibility study prepared by UOA (“Organization of national and international events and sports event Universiadi Napoli 2019”) as the subject of the invitation to tender, consist in the upgrading and implementation of existing structures and facilities, as well as the adaptation of premises identified as areas to be allocated to FISU, technical delegates and the media.

The utmost attention has been paid to the technological peculiarity, in particular to the construction choice with comparisons and control of the economic estimates, through the definition of a matrix of the different solutions, with prior quantification of the costs-benefits of the various construction sub-systems following the use of mixed-prefabricated typologies and with the identification of the plant components to be normalized and to be efficient in a global way. In conclusion, the design solution proposed and validated with the usual approvals is aimed at enhancing and confirming the pre-existing configuration of the facility, intended for competitive swimming at all levels, maintaining the complex in the original architectural canons of monumental sports architecture, with an integrated design action of modernization and restyling, with “light” interventions both inside and outside, through performance solutions of architectural excellence, engineering and plant engineering that are now typical in the restoration of sports artifacts of recognized architectural and monumental value.
