Atkins has won a contract with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Middle East District to work on infrastructure projects across the Middle East.
The work covers the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Oman and Kuwait and will involve master planning, design, design-build packages and utility surveys. The value of the contract has not been disclosed.
“Through past projects with USACE and in the Middle East, Atkins has demonstrated the expertise and successful track record to deliver critical infrastructure design and other architectural and engineering services to address the needs of the GCC,” said Bill Pearce, senior project director, who will lead the effort for Atkins.
Previous projects Atkins has worked on include the Dubai Metro.
