Bovis Lend Lease role expands at World Trade Center Ground Zero: company designated Construction Manager for the completion of the clean-up and excavation
In response to a number of queries today, Lend Lease confirms that effective next week Bovis Lend Lease will become the Construction Manager at the World Trade Center Ground Zero site in New York with overall responsibility for recovery, debris removal, demolition work, and construction of temporary structures. All contractors, consultants, and sub-contractors at the 16-acre site will work under Bovis Lend Lease's direction and Bovis Lend Lease will be directly responsible to New York City's Department of Design and Construction for all clean-up and excavation activities at Ground Zero.
Since September 11, Bovis Lend Lease and three other contractors - Turner Construction, AMEC, and Tully Construction - have each had responsibility for clearing different quadrants at Ground Zero, reporting separately to the City. Nearly one billion tons of debris has been removed to date, and activities are now extending below ground level with excavation of basements and sub-basement levels. As the clean-up process quickens and moves into its next phase, Turner has completed its assignment, and the City has established a more traditional project management structure by designating Bovis Lend Lease as the lead contractor to oversee the entire process. AMEC will continue as sub-consultant to Bovis Lend Lease and Tully will serve as a sub-contractor. The clean-up and excavation is expected to be completed by the middle of this year, and accordingly this role is expected to only have a small positive contribution to Lend Lease’s profit in 2001/02.
