WTC Memorial - 10 Years of Progress, with Alumnus Gus Maimis '84CE

Seminar / Lecture
 
For NYU Community

The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.

 
The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in the North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood.
 
Hear from Polytechnic Alumnus Konstantinos "Gus" Maimis '84CE, Project Executive for the National September 11 Memorial during this dynamic presentation about the memorial, it's construction, and the impact of the project on Lower Manhattan.  
 
A new member of the Polytechnic Institute Alumni Association's International Board of Directors, Mr. Maimis is STV’s project executive for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in downtown Manhattan.  He has more than 25 years experience in the New York market, specifically with healthcare, research and development, commercial and transportation projects, as well as mixed-use facilities. As project executive for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, Gus is responsible for the oversight and management of all construction activities for this prestigious project including the preconstruction phase, bid and procurement process, scheduling and project finance. 
 
This even will highlight the progress of the WTC Memorial Project, and give students the opportunity to interact with Mr. Maimis, and several other Poly alumni who have played a critical role in The National September 11 Memorial project.
 
Light refreshments will be served during a casual networking reception to follow the event!
