LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE:ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 140 countries around the world, announced today that it has been awarded an electrical, mechanical and architectural consultancy contract for Singapore’s proposed North-South Expressway worth nearly US$15 million.
“We are delighted to play a key role in the North-South Expressway project”
AECOM will provide multidisciplinary services covering mechanical, electrical, plumbing, structural, fire engineering, geotechnical, environmental and transportation-planning to accommodate the project’s complex technical challenges. The 13.4-mile expressway will run parallel to the country’s Central Expressway, connecting towns along the north-south corridor, such as Woodlands, Sembawang, Yishun, Ang Mo Kio, Bishan and Toa Payoh, with the city center.
“We are delighted to play a key role in the North-South Expressway project,” said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M.
