On November 26th,  2013, Toto Costruzioni Generali received in London, the title Contractor of the Year of the International Tunnelling Awards at a solemn ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel. An international jury of experts, selected by the historic magazine New Civil Engineer and the International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (ITA-AITES), has defined Toto’s role as a general contractor as exemplary in the search for innovative solutions, risk management and involvement of stakeholders in the mechanized excavation of the Sparvo Tunnel, on the A1 motorway Variante di Valico.  During the ceremony, the Sparvo Tunnel itself was awarded Project of the Year.

The use of innovative solutions, attention to detail around planning and risk management, and the engagement of staff and stakeholders make this an exemplar of how to deliver a complex tunnelling project“.
