New Sport Parquet Senigallia (Italy)

New Sport Parquet Floor
The flood dated 3rd May 2014 severely hit the region Marche and especially the Muni of Senigallia: three casualties, major damages to buildings, many activities were destroyed, the Sport Hall Pala Panzini severely damaged; not only the playing area, but also the corridor nearby the seating system surrounding the court. Pala Panzini, located in Via Capanna – opened in 1980, 1.000 spectators seats – hosts hundreds of players from basketball teams PALLACANESTRO GOLDENGAS B series weekly, including youth team. The sports parquet floor, renewed in 2010, inevitably needed do be replaced again, being damaged beyond repair.

It's been six months since the terrible flood that devastated a big part of the territory and caused serious damages - estimated at 191 millions Euros. Residents affected by the flood were almost eight thousand, which means over 3500 families. Among the severely damaged structures also the Sport Hall located in Via Capanna, now back to normal with the economic and organizational help by EBAM association.
EBAM is a Body created by the inter-federation agreements between employers' association, Confartigianato, CNA, CASA and CLAAI and trade unions CGIL, CISL and UIL, Region Marche and is part of a National system serving as a tool for integration of the subsidiary social status and to promote the development  of the sector.
Ebam decided to intervene with a public project for the city of Senigallia, identifying the Public Administration, in the Sport Hall, with the structure that represents the sense of social gathering.
The main repair was the replacement of the sports parquet floor. After a market survey involving the main national companies, EBAM decided to entrust the project to our company as they have appreciated the willingness of a quick intervention also with the support from the local company Edilplast from Ancona - official Seicom partner since many years.
The restore operation (cost 145 thousand Euro) consisted in the replacement of the sports parquet floor, the restart of changing rooms and lounge areas. Also placement of a new electronic scoreboard and installation of the sound amplifying system. Several companies involved in the operation: Belfor Italia, world leader in post recovery, dehumidification, Seicom Sports Parquet Floors from Sondrio – in cooperation with Edil Plast Srl from Ancona – for the installation of the SPORTS FLOOR FOR GYM, Curzi Dimero from Senigallia for the remodeling of changing rooms and showers, H20 from plumbing.
The beech parquet floor - solid wood 22 mm thickness - was severely damaged and lifted in many points and deemed as not recoverable by all experts; mud had also penetrated under the parquet floor and therefore needed to be removed, Concrete was completely covered in mud and had a very high humidity rate. After the removal of the parquet it was necessary to remove the mud, that was present in huge quantity. Concrete was extremely damp, with values between 10% and even 15%, so it was necessary to intervene with special equipment to speed up the drying process; BELFOR, in cooperation with SEICOM, intervened free of charge with special drying systems allowing a quick drying of the concrete in only 15 days, bringing it back to excellent values such as 2%,. It was then possible to go ahead quickly with the installation of the new SPORTS PARQUET FLOOR made of HEVEA RUBBER WOOD that, thanks to much better moisture-resistant properties, can grant a better reliability in case of excessive humidity.
Special drying systems
HEVEA RUBBER WOOD species, solid wood 22 mm thickness, currently installed in the Sport Hall has actually a dimensional stability (EN 1910/00) and a radial and tangential shrinkage (UNI ISO 4469:1985) less thank beech, oak or maple species and for such reasons it's highly recommended in case of humidity or expected moisture.
The previous flooring, supplied in 2010, was made of beech with clips system, but users complained about an excessive deformation of the floor in the backstop units area (rolling load EN1569) and there were also points where ball rebound wasn't constant; while noticing these problems, SEICOM recommended the Customer to install a new GYM FLOOR made of HEVEA RUBBER WOOD, nailed with T-shaped nails to a plywood support: our model SONDRIO 1, which better fits their requirements and needing. The continuous plywood actually helps a better rolling load distribution and grants a constant ball rebound on all points; the sports parquet floor model SONDRIO 1 made of HEVEA RUBBER WOOD is certified to resist to a rolling load of 3.000 N and the junction resists without damages even up to a load of 5.000 N. The certification was carried out by Otto-Graf Instititut in Stuttgart - Germany) and shows the excellent strength and resistance of this Sports Parquet Floor, even when stressed by extreme use.
The first step of the repair focused on demolition and disposal of the damaged material; it was necessary to provide for several containers, separate different material, classify and bring them to an authorized waste dump. Edilplast performed this first intervention in cooperation with SEICOM.

Seicom installed the parquet floor thanks to a cooperation with specialized workers from Edilpast, supplied perimeter aluminum thresholds, new skirting board and the whole PVC for the perimeter walkaway. All steps were supervised by SEICOM Technicians, who coordinated the project also with BELFOR intervention.
SEICOM and BELFOR have already cooperated in similar occasions and situations, namely in Meda (close to Milan), where the two companies cooperated after a burning: even then the close cooperation between the two companies allowed a quick repair of the Sport Hall.
SEICOM is really satisfied with the repair carried out in Senigallia; all the several compliments and our Customers and End Users' satisfaction totally reward the serious commitment of our Company.

"We can say that it's been an extraordinary intervention, that really put a strain on the workers involved; experience and goodwill have really helped us. When I first went on site for the inspection I was shocked, it seemed an impossible task, then talking to our local operators and thanks to support by our skilled workers - highly qualified - I realized it could be done"
