PAVIA AND ANSALDO WINS FOR UNIONBAU S.P.A. ON THE NEW BIATHLON CENTRE FOR THE 2026 OLYMPICS
Milan, 25 July 2023 – Pavia e Ansaldo – with partner Marco Giustiniani and associates Alessandro Paccione and Antonello Frasca – has advised UNIONBAU S.p.A. in the interim proceedings before the Regional Administrative Justice Court of Bolzano on the contract for the construction of the new Biathlon Centre of the 2026 Milan-Cortina Olympics.
After several months of litigation in front of the Regional Administrative Court and the Council of State, the Municipality of Rasun Anterselva definitively confirmed the award in favour of UNIONBAU (one of the most important construction companies in South Tyrol).
The new adjudication was challenged before the Regional Administrative Court of Bolzano; however, the victory in the interlocutory proceedings ensured the immediate start of the works so that they could be completed for the 2025 Biathlon World Cup, which will be the last test run ahead of the 2026 Winter Olympics.
The South Tyrolean court’s precautionary decision is also important in that it represents one of the first concrete jurisprudential applications of the ‘result principle’ codified in the new Public Contracts Code, which came into effect on 1 July.
