The contract is for the provision of business planning, master planning, design, engineering, programme management and training services.
EC Harris has an existing working relation with client ADPC for whom it has been providing project control services for the newly built Khalifa Port and industrial zone project. The collaboration with Arcadis made it possible to offer a broader scope of services, which resulted in the winning of the framework contract.
The three-year framework calls for a broad scope of services,including port planning and engineering, financial and economic modelling, traffic forecasting and port management services.
“This contract exemplifies the joint strength of Arcadis and EC Harris in the Middle East and is but one example of the many synergy opportunities between the two firms,” said Tim Risbridger, head of transportation in the Middle East at EC Harris. “Given the potential in the region and our growing presence, I foresee more of these opportunities in the near future.”
