Fiorentina is pleased to announce the beginning of work to redevelop the Favard building – a former ENEL facility – which is located on the land destined to become the new ACF Fiorentina training ground in Bagno a Ripoli.
The tender for the construction and engineering work required for the redevelopment of the building saw participation from several companies. Once the deadline for the submission of technical and economic proposals had passed, Fiorentina worked with the Marco Casamonti & Partners to identify DAM Costruzioni Generali srl – a company based in the Florence area – as the company that best fulfilled the technical and economic requirements of the design chosen by the club’s owners and design team.
The work on the Favard building, which encompasses around 750m2 dating back to the 19th century, in addition to an extension completed in the 20th century, will predominantly focus on the historic part of the building.
As announced by Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso during the press conference on Saturday 6 June, Fiorentina is delighted to have identified a local company as the perfect partner for the construction of the new club offices, providing employment to a workforce of around 80 people for the full duration of works.
The offices will represent the beating heart of a facility which will stand at the cutting edge of football not only in Florence and Tuscany, but across Italy and indeed all over the world.
Having signed the contract, the necessary documentation will now be submitted to the relevant bodies and work will begin on the project – which is due for completion by late Autumn – in the next few days.
