THE “TUTTLE CREEK” DAM CONTRACT REACHES US$ 113.7 MILLION
April 23, 2008The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded Trevi Group, through its American subsidiary, TREVIICOS South, an extension to the contract to repair and reinforce the Tuttle Creek dam near Kansas City, Missouri, against earthquake damage.
The contract extension is worth US$ 57 million and takes the total contract value to US$ 113.7 million. The contract extension, the outcome of the excellent results achieved in the first phase of the project, is a partnering for Tuttle Creek Dam between the owner and TREVI to find and adopt the best technological and equipment solutions to the geotechnical problems. Given the excellent results, this type of collaborative contract will be used again by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in other dam repair and civil engineering projects.
The contract extension is proof of the faith that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the most important civil engineering contractor in the world, has in Trevi Group, particularly in the repair and reinforcement of dams. Trevi Icos was awarded the “Contractor of the year award” for the 2004 from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers South Atlantic Division. TREVIICOS worked over 525,000 man hours without a lost time accident, with an overall performance rated outstanding.
