Consultant Project Profile: STV Inc.

Posted on June 15, 2012 by METRO Staff

In downtown New York City, a new iconic structure is taking flight. The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey’s new World Trade Center Transportation Hub is currently under construction and, once completed, will be a symbol of the redevelopment of downtown.

STV is the architect-of-record for the new transportation hub, as part of the Downtown Design Partnership, a joint venture team that includes AECOM and is in association with renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. The transportation hub’s design features steel “wings” that is evocative of those of a bird. The new facility will include a Port Authority Trans-Hudson services terminal and connect to MTA New York City Transit subway lines via the Fulton Street Transit Center as well as the nearby World Financial Center and its ferries to New Jersey.

One of the many challenges on this project was accommodating the active subway lines that run through the area. STV and its partners developed a way to excavate beneath the subway box while maintaining train service. Because of the tight corners within the work area, construction crews use small equipment to excavate the rock and soils.

STV is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Since its oldest predecessor firm opened its doors in 1912, the firm has grown to become a leader in the many industries it serves, recognized for delivering value and excellence in engineering, architectural, planning, environmental and construction management services. Today, STV provides an array of services for world-class transportation, infrastructure, building and energy projects. The firm has been 100% employee-owned for over a decade.
