Tipiesse was established in 1980 and quickly became a national reference point in the field of resins for sports, recreational and leisure time flooring.
Tipiesse’s work for sports facilities
Turbigo, multifunctional sports centre.
Over the years, the company from Villa d’Adda (Bergamo) has refined its skills in the construction of “turnkey” sports facilities, and in particular it has entered the public leasing market by proposing itself with the Public Private Partnership (PPP) formula, which allows municipalities and provinces to carry out important works without burdening the public budget.
Public Private Partnership works
At present Tipiesse, through the Consorzio Ercole of which it is a member, is working on 6 PPP projects of the leasing-construction type, while the adaptation of the municipal sports centre of Ospitaletto, which we discuss in this article, has just been completed using this formula.
The PPP projects for which the final/executive design is underway or the building site has already been opened mainly concern sports centres including a swimming facility, a particularly costly structure for the public accounts. Among others, the final design of the swimming centre in Jesolo (Venice) is underway. In addition to the classic swimming and swimming training activities, it will offer rehabilitation both in water and linked to fitness activities and a large thermal area for wellness and spa, as well as an outdoor spray park for children. The Cervignano del Friuli (Udine) swimming facility is also planned, as is the conversion of the former Rivoli (Turin) bowling alley into a sports swimming centre.
On the other hand, work is already underway on the multi-purpose sports centres (with swimming activities combined with other sports) in Turbigo (Milan), Cesano Boscone (Milan) and Sanremo (Imperia).
The other worksites
But Tipiesse’s activity is ongoing with works of different sizes in all Italian regions.
Several worksites concern the construction or renovation of athletics tracks: for example, at the “Salvo d’Acquisto” sports centre in Aulla (Massa), where the track and the multi-purpose fields are being renovated; in Gravedona (Como) at the municipal facility in viale Scuri; at the CittÃ di Meda Stadium (Monza e Brianza); in Settimo Torinese at the VIII Marzo sports centre, in San Martino in Passiria (Bolzano).
Other works include the resurfacing of various sports surfaces, including synthetic grass football pitches, often combined with the renovation of stands or ancillary areas, such as the L. Moccia sports centre in Afragola (Naples), or, again in Naples, the San Gennaro dei Poveri sports centre in the SanitÃ district.
Work on synthetic grass pitches was also carried out in San Giorgio Jonico (Taranto), Palma Campania (Naples) and at the Oratorio dell’Immacolata in Bergamo.
In addition to this list, which is in any case incomplete, of the works to which Tipiesse is offering its experience and expertise in the field of sports facilities, we would like to mention the worksites of no less importance, such as the one for the new Museo del Risorgimento in Brescia, where the works on the building shell were started with the renovation of the roof and the restoration of the facades for the recovery and enhancement of the buildings of the Grande and Piccolo Miglio.
