TORRI DI QUARTESOLO, Italy, May 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
The Italian company belonging to the Malacalza Family has been awarded the contract for an extension (3600 m2) of experiment facility (Building 887).
The building will house Neutrino Detetctor R&D experiments. The contract is worth a total of around 9 million euros.
OMBA Impianti & Engineering, a company belonging to the Malacalza family, has been awarded the contract for an extension of Building 887 (EHN1) with an overall surface of approx. 3600 m2 on the CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research ) Prévessin's site in France.
OMBA - as leader of a JV with Dimensione S.p.A. and Fondamenta S.r.l. - will realize the full building including special foundations, concrete foundations, steel structures and facades, completing the "turn-key" project in February 2016.
Once finished, the new extension will house CERN's future Neutrino Detector R&D Experiments, within CENF Project.
The existing CERN facilities will continue to operate during the construction phase, therefore the working methods will be adapted to mitigate any impact from noise, vibration, dust and movement/settlement of existing structures. The contractor shall provide all the necessary tooling and material for the proper execution of the construction works, including machinery and/or vehicles.
OMBA's CEO, Carlo Di Paolo said: "The award of this contract is particularly important, as it confirms our status as a most competent and reliable partner. 2014 was a record year for OMBA in terms of tons of steel we processed in our 60-year history." Di Paolo concluded: "After Metro Copenaghen, the railway viaducts in Algeria and the new pavilion for Venice Expo, the extension of a experiment facility for CERN represents a new, important chapter for OMBA."
