Parsons-AECOM Said To Win PM Role on $11-Billion Emirates' Railway Network

Publication Date: 4/15/2011

Description: The Abu Dhabi-based owner of a planned $11-billion railway network across the United Arab Emirates has selected a Parsons Corp.-AECOM joint venture as the project's program manager, say both company sources who did not wish to be named and published reports in the Middle East. The owner, Etihad Rail Co., formerly Union Railway, has declined requests to confirm either the selection or contract award.

Joel’s comments:

Wow, an $11 billion project! I’d love to do the printing work on this project, for sure!

I would imagine that some of the printing on this project will be done in the U.S. (maybe?) Back around 1982, our first company did a $200,000 print order for a Saudi project. We did that print order for HDR Architecture’s office in the D.C. market. We shipped a lot of that print order to Saudi Arabia.

I would imagine that ARC has a “leg-up” on any print work that will be done in the U.S. for the $11 billion UAE project, and I say that because ARC recently announced a major deal with AECOM and because one of the members of ARC’s Board of Directors (see below) was formerly Chairman & CEO of Parsons.
