Carrying on the works for the new ‘2017 Mediterranean Games’ Sports Palace, and according to the plan, is at 25% of the execution now. The works management of this project, done by AIA Activitats Instal·lacions Arquitectòniques in collaboration with Barceló Balanzó Arquitectes, is being carried out daily with the participation of different technicians. The regional minister of the Presidency of the Catalan Government, Neus Munté, and the Mayor of Tarragona, Josep Fèlix Ballesteros, have claimed in the worksite visit, which took place on the 20th of September, that the main building of Tarragona 2017 ‘will arrive on time and it will be tested before the opening of the Games’.
The works, funded entirely by the Catalan Government, were allocated in three phases: civil engineering, architecture and mep engineering; for a total cost of 10 million euros approximately and with tight deadlines.
The Sports Palace will host the handball competition and in the ‘Mediterranean Ring’ ensemble, where is planned the construction of an outdoor swimming pool and the remodeling of the Athletics Stadium, will take place the athletics, swimming and water polo competitions.
