The City of Richardson, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, has chosen Aecom to act as General Engineering Consultant to augment city staff and provide programme management services for the city’s Capital Improvement Program, including the recently approved 2021 Bond Program.
The improvement programme comprises projects totaling nearly $400m to be delivered over the next five to seven years. They include replacements for high-need residential and commercial streets; enhancements to the city’s traffic signal system; renovations to the public library, City Hall, Fire Station No. 5, and Animal Shelter; improvements to sidewalk accessibility; and upgrades to ageing drainage, water, and sanitary infrastructure including an expansion of the Northside Pump Station.
Aecom will provide programme coordination, management, and delivery services related to engineering, design, construction, sequencing, community engagement, real estate, and performance monitoring.
“We’re proud to partner with the City of Richardson on its vision to serve the community. This comprehensive bond program will provide necessary renovations to public buildings, parks, and infrastructure across the city, prioritizing critical needs and maximum impact,” said Travis Boone, chief executive of Aecom’s US West region.
