CSC Costruzioni, a subsidiary of Webuild, holds a 67% share in the consortium that will build the Nuovo Stabilimento Industriale Ferroviario (NSIF) project in Ticino, Switzerland.

The consortium, called Consorzio Officine Ticinesi OFT will implement the preparatory works and excavation works for FFS (Ferrovie Federali Svizzere) before constructing the main building, the nearby technical buildings, and all works for the external areas.

Work is expected to start in July this year, ahead of completion in 2027.
