Aecom has expanded its operations in the former Soviet bloc with the acquisition of Lend Lease’s project and construction management operations serving the Russia and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) market.
The 150-strong group has an extensive portfolio of projects in Aecom’s core sectors including commercial, retail, hospitality, healthcare, residential, industrial, airport, mixed-use and high rise buildings.
Aecom has a major presence in the region and is currently project managing construction of Russia’s first privately financed toll road.
“We are gaining a dedicated team of professionals who share our commitment to health, safety and customer service,” said Aecom Europe chief executive Steve Morriss.
“They will help us grow in the five key sectors of commercial, sports, industrial, transportation and healthcare.”
