TREVI ICOS STARTS ITS TENTH PROJECT AT HARVARD UNIVERSITY
03 May 2010
TREVIICOS CORPORATION, a company controlled by TREVI Group, has been awarded a prestigious new contract in the U.S.A.
The contract, being Skanska USA the construction manager, involves the construction of a diaphragm at the Harvard Art Museum in Massachusetts (USA). The work of setting up the site and demolition operations have already started and work is expected to be completed by end- 2010.
The logistical and geological complexity of the site together with the limited time available for completion of the work demands the high degree of security, quality and professionalism that has always been characteristic of TREVIICOS CORPORATION.
The Harvard Art Museum was designed by the world famous architect Renzo Piano. The new design involves the renewal of the central building and will include additional exhibition space and art study centres. The building’s new wings will, once completed, unite in one single structure the three existing museums: Fogg, Busch-Reisinger and Arthur M. Sackler Museums. The project will contribute to the preservation of Harvard’s significant artistic heritage and, at the same time, enhance the research and teaching objectives that are the distinguishing hallmarks of the University.
Stefano Trevisani, Chief Executive of Trevi Group, stated: "This new order represents one of the first contracts issued within a much wider development project for Boston that had previously been suspended. TREVI ICOS CORPORATION, in its tenth project for Harvard University, with this new order confirms its leadership as the leading company for special foundations in the region and hopes to receive further work as a result."
