Across the country we are helping to meet the need for faster, safer, more cost-effective and efficient transport. Our strong performance on Delhi Metro has helped us secure design and supervision roles on new metros in Bangalore, Chennai, Jaipur, Kolkata and Mumbai. The government is planning four high speed rail projects to be built by 2020.
Construction work is ongoing on the award-winning, topographically complex Payong airport at Sikkim in the Himalayas. And after delivering the mega-scale Delhi International Airport in 2010 in record time, we are working with the same airport developer, GMR, master planning and designing the entire expansion of Ibrahim Nasir International Airport in the Maldives.
In the industry sector our clients include some of the world’s largest corporations including Glenmark, AstraZeneca, Bunge, Lanxess and Shell. Our projects span all industry sectors.
We’re tackling the water and sanitation needs of the world’s fifth most populous city, Mumbai. We are also working on sewerage projects in the state of Gujarat, helping to reduce contamination of groundwater, water supply pipelines and coastal waters.
We are project manager and design consultant for a sustainable coastal protection project in Karnataka. The programme will address immediate coastal protection needs as well as support the regeneration of natural defences.
We are providing innovative and sustainable solutions to some of the major challenges facing Bangladesh. Since 2003 we have been developing the skills and management capabilities for local communities to build and maintain flood defence and drainage infrastructure. We are also leading the Char Development and Settlement project which is helping to reduce poverty and hunger by improving infrastructure and teaching management skills.
We are working to advance the economy and overall quality of living throughout the country by developing a framework for selecting, designing and implementing interventions for urban development and management initiatives in Bangladesh’s cities and towns.
Our work with the government’s Water & Power Development Authority (WAPDA) has gone from strength to strength over the last 10 years. Design is well under way on the US$700 million extension of Tarbela Dam, which we are leading. We have recently been awarded a four year construction supervision contract for the Kurram Tangi Dam which will provide flood defence and irrigation and generate 84MW of electricity. We have also been appointed to provide detailed design for a mixed use development near WAPDA’s headquarters in Lahore.
We are providing environmental and social studies, land use and resettlement plans for the Coal & Energy Development Department. An estimated 180 billion tonnes of lignite coal, discovered in the Thar Desert in the 1990s, could make Pakistan self-sufficient in energy for the next 200 years.
Following the devastating 2010 floods, we are providing practical planning tools and guidance to improve the climate resilience of 100 exemplar villages. The project will establish effective flooding policy and give the rural poor and local decision makers the knowledge needed to prevent future repeats of the catastrophe.
Our specialist health business HLSP is working to build expertise and experience in Pakistan’s Department of Health, aimed at reducing mortality and improving health among new mothers and their babies.
