WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tiber International Group is proud to announce that Schnabel Engineering (Schnabel) and the Italian design firm SWS Engineering (SWS) have joined forces as Schnabel-SWS to provide tunnel and underground solutions for complex infrastructure challenges in North America, specifically the United States and Canada. Together their combined project experience demonstrates the alliance’s overall expertise in tunnel and geostructural design, risk management, construction management and Building Information Modeling (BIM).
Founded in 1956, Schnabel has established itself as a national specialty designer in geotechnical engineering, and in tunnel and geostructural design for transportation, water/wastewater and hydroelectric infrastructure projects. SWS, established in 1982, has quickly become one of the world’s preeminent tunnel engineering firms, specializing in tunnel design and BIM modeling for underground infrastructure projects, with more than 300 miles of tunnel designed and 8,000 BIM projects completed.
Tiber International Group has been instrumental in the development of the Schnabel-SWS joint venture, from the initial evaluation of the combined strengths of the two companies, and their common values and work ethics (all necessary to insure the success of a newly formed entity) to the coordination of the final meetings of the JV agreement.
“In less than six months Tiber International has delivered results by enabling SWS Engineering to strengthen its presence in North America,” said Paolo Mazzalai, President and CEO of SWS Engineering. “The task of presenting us a company in the US that offers synergy and growth is difficult, but in the end, the most challenging part is coming to an agreement with the right company, and we are very pleased to join our forces with Schnabel. Tiber International was able to keep everybody on schedule and on target, and we are very proud of this important milestone.” said Guido Venturini, CEO North America of SWS.
“It has been a pleasure to work with Tiber International and to have been introduced to SWS. We are excited about the future.” said George Teetes, President, Tunnel Division of Schnabel Engineering. “Schnabel is very strong in the US infrastructure market; and when you combine the SWS tunnel and 5D BIM project design expertise, you realize how our collective capabilities can become a formidable presence in the market.” stated Allen Cadden, Principal of Schnabel Engineering.
