Faulty World Trade Center design could cost millions

Washington, Wed, 01 Feb 2012 ANI

Washington, February 1(ANI): The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the main agency building the new World Trade Center, has said that a design flaw could add millions of dollars to the actual cost of the complex's signature tower.


The agency revealed that the loading dock under One World Trade Center won't be completed in time for occupants to move their equipment into the 104-story tower.


Therefore, it is building five temporary loading bays above the ground, Fox News reports.


"Several years ago there was a design miss. Should it have been caught? The answer is, probably," said Patrick Foye, executive director of the Port Authority.


The construction of the temporary loading bays will cost millions that will add up to the cost of One World Trade Center, the glass and steel spire earlier known as the Freedom Tower. The building is now 90 stories high


"We and the other concerned stakeholders believe this will be a short-term issue and will not impede completion of the site or tenants moving into the buildings," he added.


It was reported on Monday that the cost of One World Trade Center has ascended to 3.8 billion dollars, which is a whopping 700 million pounds more than the last publicly released ballpark figure in 2008.


Although Foye didn't confirmed the 3.8 billion dollar figure but said that the surging costs would be scanned in a review of the agency that is being prepared for the governors of New York and New Jersey.


He also revealed that later this year, the Port Authority will ask contractors for offer to build a new Terminal A at Newark. (ANI)
