Atkins to manage Statue of Liberty upgrade

Consultant Atkins has been selected by US client the National Park Service as construction manager for the $27M (£17.4M) Statue of Liberty National Monument enhancement in New York.

Work will consist of replacing two elevators, improving accessibility and upgrading the electrical, air handling, fire protection and security systems.

Renovation of the Statue of Liberty will begin in November, immediately following the 125th anniversary celebrations of the monument being given to the USA by France.
