    10/11/11

    Coni Servizi Engineering & Consulting has been appointed as the lead technical partner of the Rome Bid Committee for the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, with specific responsibility for competition and non competition venue master planning and design.

    As a part of its partnership, Coni Servizi has assembled an elite consortium of local and international specialized engineering and architectural companies including Studio Zoppini (PyeongChang 2018), Shesa (Juventus Football Club Stadium), Populous and Nussli, the latter two of which have a long and distinguished experience in Olympic planning and design.

    Coni Servizi will also be supported by a group of experienced, in-house architects.

    “This collaborative and multi-lateral approach to supporting Roma 2020”, - said Raffaele Pagnozzi General Secretary of the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) and CEO of Coni Servizi, “will not only offer our Olympic bid the best possible blend of international experience and Italian capabilities, but will also enable our company to grow and develop a core, sustainable legacy for Italian and international sport for the future”.

    Populous and Nussli team will provide their outstanding experience and focus to Rome 2020’s overlay planning, a key feature of bid's extraordinary Games plan.

    “Overlay and temporary venue planning is one of the key elements of Rome’s bid, said Ernesto Albanese, Rome 2020 Managing Director, “and we are very pleased to count on the innovative combination of local resources and international expertise brought to us by Coni Servizi. This approach is critical in our effort to minimize capital investments while ensuring a responsible and sustainable legacy for the city, for Italian sport and for the entire Olympic Movement going forward.“
