AECOM inks another Abu Dhabi contract
Californian firm boosts exposure in key UAE market
California’s AECOM Technology Corporation has added to its recent Masdar contract win by signing a deal to manage the infrastructure project component of the Capital District in Abu Dhabi.
“AECOM is proud to be part of this exciting plan to help shape the future of Abu Dhabi,” said John M. Dionisio, AECOM president and CEO.
“Globally AECOM has been entrusted with the management and control of hundreds of major capital programmes.”
The Capital District will form the centre of the UAE’s federal government and is a major part of the emirate’s Plan 2030 vision. The development is earmarked to become home to 370,000 residents.
The project will feature a first-class transportation system built on a backbone of underground, high-speed metro and will include highways and roads, water, sewage, district cooling, communication, gas, street lighting, tunnels, and public realm works.
