Challenges

Transit options are essential for businesses and communities to thrive. The most desirable areas in which to live and work are those that include robust transit networks that connect cities, states, provinces, and countries. Our teams of industry experts have decades of experience developing the required track structure for railways, roads, tunnels, etc. Whether it’s for a new system, expansion, extension, or a major upgrade, we have the professional multidisciplinary teams to ensure effective project delivery in every facet of transit engineering projects.

Capabilities

Integrated Multimodal Transit Systems Solutions

We have extensive experience developing and coordinating multimodal transit projects. Today, communities are looking for more environmentally friendly ways to commute. Planners are looking at smart city concepts in which residents use multiple forms of transportation instead of relying on personal vehicles. Our multimodal transit team makes it easier by considering numerous modes when integrating transit systems. And we do it in a timely, innovative, and sustainable way.

Transit Corridor Development

Transit corridors promote connectivity, enhance the local economy, and offer numerous transit options. An effective corridor balances capacity with demand. We can help you ensure an optimal design by accounting for track configuration, maximization of other infrastructure and rolling stock capacities, implementation of effective operational methodologies and practices, and proactive maintenance and sustainability strategies.

Transit Engineering Design

Our Transit Engineering Design team is comprised of a multidisciplinary group of engineers, architects, traffic planners, cost estimators, and environmentalists, who expertly develop advanced multimodal designs that make life easier for transit users. We focus on safety, sustainability, constructability, and operability while collaborating on all types of transit projects, including bus, BRT, metros/subways, light rail, commuter rail, inter-city rail, regional rail, and high-speed rail.

Procurement, Program, and Project Management and Support

We support a wide range of public transit organizations and contractors throughout the life cycle of a project. We have experience in transit infrastructure development, procurement, and implementation, including design-bid-build, public private partnership, alternative financing and procurement, design-build, construction manager at risk, alliances, and other collaborative delivery models. Our methodology is customized to your procurement requirements, and we work closely with you and your team to ensure innovative cost-effective strategies and timely delivery.

Construction Management and Contract Administration

We can support the construction of transit projects of any scale from start to finish. Our team of experts ensure that the project’s schedule meets contract milestones without compromising safety or quality. Additionally, they oversee costs and scope, and coordinate all tasks of the project.
