Providing technical support to local bodies in the field of sports equipment through the Barcelona Provincial Council

Collaborating with the Barcelona Provincial Council as one of the 12 companies selected in the Framework Agreement to carry out studies of sports equipment from 2020.

Among the technical support resources offered by the Sports Services Management of the Barcelona Provincial Council, specifically through the Office of Sports Facilities (OSF), the following 4 major areas can currently be highlighted:

  • Planning and management

Sports equipment management and feasibility studies

  • Architecture

Architectural studies of sports facilities

  • Environmental sustainability

Energy efficiency studies of sports equipment

  • Maintenance

Sports equipment maintenance studies

These 4 areas coincide with the 4 lots included in the current Framework Agreement in which itik consultoria has been selected from 12 companies to carry out studies of sports equipment, 3 for each lot. Specifically, itik consultoria has done so in lot 1 regarding management and feasibility studies of sports equipment.

Thus, since 2020, itik has worked hand in hand with the OSF of the Sports Services Management with 4 local bodies of different characteristics and needs, developing 4 feasibility studies for each of these with the aim to develop a technical tool to assist them in decision-making either to execute an initiative already planned or to model it for optimal action. For the years 2020 and 2021 these have been the following:

These studies take the viability of sports projects and planned actions beyond the numbers, also focusing on other areas of a cross-cutting nature and impact such as the socio-demographic, organizational and human resources, among others. They also define different scenarios of not only economic feasibility but also working towards social, sports and environmental feasibility and its impact and benefits on the community to which the municipal sports service will be provided.

Read on and reflect with us on the importance of going beyond economic feasibility in projecting a study of this nature here.
