Middle East And Africa (MEA)

For more than 60 years, we’ve established a trusted presence in the Middle East, providing studies, design, construction, operations and maintenance, commissioning, and project/construction management. As premier project management firm, we’ve successfully completed more than 900 projects in the United Arab Emirates alone, and presently have approximately 550 ongoing projects.

Our experts combine experience and innovation from across the organization to deliver solutions for our clients, including:



We have been involved in multiple airport projects across more than 40 countries, supporting clients in delivering sustainable, world-class airport infrastructure through cost- effective, value-added consultancy services and project management. We work to deliver solutions to our clients across all sizes of airports, with infrastructure values ranging from tens of millions of dollars to more than $10 billion per project.


Rail And Transit

We're leaders in communications-based train control (CBTC), employing a systems-integration approach that leverages advanced CBTC and European Railway Traffic Management System (ERTMS) technology. We provide solutions for automated people movers, light rail transit systems, metro systems, mainline, freight railroads, including design and management



We design and build bridges that enrich skylines and provide efficient transportation. Our portfolio includes over 4,500 crossings around the world, including landmarks that carry pedestrians, roads, railways, and pipelines. We're the designer of choice for alternative delivery and disaster recovery projects that reconnect, restore, and rebuild communities.


Roads And Highways

Stretching more than 10,000 miles (16,000 kilometers) across six continents, our road and highway projects circle the globe. Far from simply moving people from place to place, our smart corridors help move people into the future. From traditional to integrated delivery methods, our expertise includes complex interchanges, tolling and integrated corridor management.


Ports, Marine, And Logistics

Coasts provide many ecosystem services – such as transportation routes, fishing, navigable waterways, tourism and recreation, developments, space for agriculture and construction projects. Of the 20 megacities in the world with populations of more than ten million, 13 are situated near a coast. Predictions indicate that the percentage of world population living in coastal areas will continue to increase. Concurrently, that imposes the fact of vulnerability of coastlines and coastal communities for changes and risks.



We provide solutions to the largest, most complex tunnel, and underground construction projects. We plan, design, engineer, build, and manage complex tunnel projects ranging from transit systems to sewers and pipelines, in challenging geologic environments. Our underground construction experience ranges from small excavations to large underground transit systems, water and wastewater infrastructure, and hydroelectric projects. We utilize 3D modeling, BIM, conventional and machine-bored tunneling.
