This past December, His Excellency Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA, presented us with the Award for Best Engineering Consultant of the Year at the RTA’s annual Best Supplier and Investor Awards ceremony.
Pierre Santoni, President MEA, and Suad Mousa Khawaja, Sr. Vice President – Dubai, Bahrain, Kuwait attended to accept the Award on our behalf.
To be recognized by one of our key clients in this way is a testament to our team’s dedication to Parsons’ core values. We put quality, integrity, and innovation at the heart of every project we work on and when we are awarded in this way it demonstrates that we’re successfully implementing these values.” said Pierre.
We have worked with the RTA for almost 27 years on roughly 120 projects including major road corridors such as Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, Sheikh Zayed Road, and most recently Dubai Water Canal and Shindagha Corridor. Our team has also worked on the RTA’s Intelligent Traffic System as well as major rail projects such as Dubai Metro and Route 2020.
“There were 10 award categories and to be nominated alongside some of the industry’s largest players was in itself an achievement,” says Suad, “to then go on and win the award for Best Engineering Consultant was an honor” she continued.
Al Tayer added, “this felicitation is a manifestation of our commitment to enhancing our cooperation with private partners whom we view as supporters of RTA efforts in delivering various projects. It is also a gesture of appreciation for the efforts of these entities that had delivered immense projects that contributed to achieving RTA’s aspirations.”
This is not the first time we have been recognized by the RTA for excellence in project delivery. In May of 2022, the Parsons-Systra Joint Venture (PSJV) team received the “Sustainable Transport Best Consultant” award for the Dubai Metro Route 2020 extension project which you can read about here.
