VVA Sweett is a 50/50 joint venture between Sweett Group and VVA, a New York-based project management consultancy. The two have collaborated to provide an integrated project management and cost management service since 2010 and a joint venture agreement was signed in May 2012.
Sweett chief executive officer Dean Webster said: "I am very pleased with the speed at which we have been able to develop our joint venture with VVA, which has already resulted in a number of cross-referrals and joint projects, not only in North America, but also across our network of offices in China, India and the UK."
VVA managing director Lorenzo Vascotto said: "Given the steady increase in project volume and client requests for project and cost management services in the greater Boston area, the natural choice is to establish an office in Boston. We have enjoyed very strong, long-standing relationships with our clients across the Americas and across the world, and are very excited to be able to add a strong local presence in New England."
