Our flagship co. in the U.S., FABBRICA LLC, has won a project to build more than 42,000 m² of curtain walls for two commercial buildings, laboratories and offices, located in Cambridge, Massachussets.
The project, by Pickard Chilton arch studio, involves 2 buildings that will rise respectively at 250 and 290 Binney Street. FABBRICA will take care of the design and engineering of 42.000 m² of curtain walls, whose particular complexity includes oblique elevations and protruding ‘wings’ elements called “DNA”.
The works are scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2023 and to be completed for a building in 2024 and for the second in 2026.
Oscar Marchetto, Somec CEO, pointed out that: “This new contract bears out the soundness of our investment in the US and our ability to compete and win ever more prestigious contracts. The structure and skills of our team allow us to focus on gaining a stronger foothold in the US real estate market, where major investments are being made to improve the energy and sustainability performance of all large buildings. I strongly believe that Somec Group is in the best position to seize the enormous growth opportunities that this business provides and will continue to provide in the near future.”
The total order backlog of the group as at 30 June 2022 was 923 million euros.
From January 2022 to date, the contracts acquired amounted to approximately 217 million euros.
