The definitive project for the new tourist port “Marina di Gaeta” envisages the construction of a port basin, consisting of an overflow pier and a submerged pier, realized by means of thrown works, internal quays, made up of cations in r.c. and floating piers. Service buildings and plants complete the intervention.

The project, presented under the D.P.R. 509/1997, the regulation governing the procedure for the concession of maritime State property for the construction of structures dedicated to pleasure boating, is characterized by a 130.000 sqm water surface and aims to redevelop the entire area through a legible sign on an urban and territorial scale. The project idea was to conceive an integrated marina that, although revolving around the nautical leisure activity, was able to offer the user a wide and articulated service, creating a direct relationship with the inhabited center in which it is inserted . Designed as a point of aggregation and recreation for the citizens, the aim was to create a port that is lived and liveable in every period of the year. In this regard, the elements identified as focal points of the design were the square, considered as a hinge between the city and the sea and meeting place/entertainment for exhibitions, outdoor events and concerts, and the pedestrian promenade, a public path equipped designed to be usable and usable not only by users interested in port functions, but also by the citizens of Gaeta.

The design was based around the resolution of the urban planning problem, given by the overlap of different planning tools and the resolution of the geotechnical problem, linked to the particular nature of the land of sediment of the defense maritime works, characterized by layers of very low silt.

React has dealt, thanks to the BIM methodology, the definitive design of the maritime and civil works, the plant networks and the related coordination between the various disciplines. The BIM has allowed to define a precise workflow for the correct planning of the activities. Once a BIM Mission has been decreed, the objectives have been set for the extrapolation of the graphic elaborations necessary for the progress of the project and the time and costs of realization have been defined in a timely manner. The BIM model was fundamental for conducting an in-depth study for the subsequent management and maintenance phases throughout the entire life cycle of the work. So-called uses of BIM have been defined, organizing and planning the modelling of the works: among these, the coordination has allowed to identify the main problems encountered by the transition from CAD to BIM; the verification of the information contents allowed to validate the project, through internal control cycles; finally cycles of clash analysis have allowed to solve the physical interferences found between the different systems. The ultimate aim was to draw up a metric estimative computation, obtained directly from the models and capable of providing univocal information that can be updated over time.
