The Fontajau pavilion will open the final floor in January, which will replace the one that was disabled due to the flood caused by the storm Gloria. Almost a year after that accident, which denied the central track and other units with more than a meter and a half of water, the City Council has awarded the company Soluciones decorativas Ibaizabal SL, for 135,520 euros, the final floor that will be installed in the pavilion, in property. The flood damaged the previous floor of Fontajau just when it had not been half a year since the City Council had restored it with an investment of close to 45,000 euros.
The award has been public since yesterday, although now it opens a period of fifteen days before it is final and the contract is signed. A total of six bids were submitted to the competition. Once the purchase has been initialed, the winning company will have a month and a half to proceed with the installation, which could be done in less than a week. Therefore, Spar Girona and Bàsquet Girona, the main users of the central court of Fontajau, will be able to have them at the beginning of 2021.
A year after the flood, the serious problem that was generated in Fontajau will be solved, which made the clubs fear that they would not be able to have the pavilion last season (the health crisis had not yet erupted). Initially, the City Council obtained, via the Generalitat, a parquet floor that was disused in Tarragona and three weeks after the accident, official matches were played again. Then the expansion of the coronavirus abruptly cut the leagues, and during the confinement it had been raised that the pavilion might house a field hospital, a scenario finally ruled out. The floor returned to Tarragona in the spring, and last summer another was rented to face the start of the season of Uni and Bàsquet Girona, which is still installed.
