Atkins will help PRPA engineers, planners, and operations staff plan, design, procure, and supervise infrastructure projects for the next five years.
Joe Boyer, Atkins CEO, North America, said: “We have a long-term professional relationship with the PRPA, having designed and planned projects at nine out of the ten PRPA-owned airports in Puerto Rico over the last 16 years. The award of this new contract will further strengthen our relationship with the PRPA and enable us to bring a world-class team of experts to its grant projects.”
The PRPA is the governmental agency that develops, operates, and oversees all seaports and airports in Puerto Rico. The PRPA fist selected Atkins’ Puerto Rico-based business unit, Atkins Caribe, as PRPA’s GEC in 1997; the company was then reselected multiple times to provide comprehensive airport planning, engineering, and construction services for both commercial and general aviation airports. Atkins has also completed numerous projects to help PRPA’s engineering bureau execute its capital improvement program (CIP) and develop maritime transportation facilities and airfields.
