Trevi continues to acquire orders in strategically located areas and has recently been awarded important contracts in the United States and in the Middle East.

Boston’s skyline is about to be enriched with a new major feature. One Dalton will be a 65-story tower that will soar 760ft (230 m) into the New England sky. TREVIICOS, the subsidiary of TreviI Group in the United States, has succeeded in securing the full foundations and site work package for the new tower.

The company will be working as the main contractor for the package under the Construction Manager, Suffolk Construction. The new tower will consist of a ultra-high-end hotel and condominiums managed by Four Seasons Hotel. The tower is located in the heart of the famous Back Bay area a few steps away from the Charles River. The $700 million tower is founded on a series of very deep rectangular load bearing elements. The load bearing elements will be excavated using a hydromill to a depth of approximately 190 ft (58 m) including approximately 16 ft (5 m) into hard rock. The build ing will also include three below grade level supported by a combination of diaphragm wall and a secant pile wall.

TREVIICOS has also been awarded the Lower Wood River Deep Cutoff Wall project located in Illinois. The company will once again operate as main contractor under the supervision of the Southwestern Illinois Flood Prevention District Council. The panels constructed will have a depth of 140ft (40m) with a total wall surface of 230,000 sq ft (21,000 sq m). The work will involve the construction of a diaphragm wall for the stabilization and waterproofing of the faults along the Mississippi River and Wood River Creek.

In the Middle East TreviGroup has been awarded a contract for the construction of infrastructure and roads relating to the urban development of Kuwait. The execution of the works will result in the completing of special foundations, soil improvement and bored piles.

The CEO of TREVI Division, Stefano Trevisani, commented – “TREVI division continues to acquire significant orders in areas of particular interest. The positive trend expected in the United States is particularly promising and the award of these contracts confirms it. One Dalton will be the tallest tower in New England and one of the most important structures built in recent decades. The private construction and the execution of high-rise buildings of this type are proof of a strong growth market. It should also be noted that the project of securing the embankment on the Mississippi River confirms the strong potential of the United States as more and more of these works specifically developed by division TREVI are needed. Finally, we remain well positioned in the Middle East and the addition of this order provides for the increase of the portfolio in the area”.
