High speed train Bridge across river valley


We’ve been working in Taiwan since 1968 on a range of transport assignments in railways, metros, highways, and bridges, as well as the water sector.

Following success on Kaohsiung Metro, we are now providing technical services for the city’s new light rapid transit system.


We have worked on two of the country's biggest infrastructure schemes: a 214-mile (345-kilometer) national high-speed rail link and a new metro for Kaohsiung, its second largest city.

For the $13 billion Taiwan High Speed Rail project, we led an international joint venture on a six-year contract as independent checking and site engineer. The route includes 156 miles (251 kilometers) of viaduct, 29 miles (47 kilometers) of tunnel, and 20 miles (32 kilometers) of earthworks. At the time of development, it was among the world’s largest privately funded transport schemes.

For Kaohsiung's $7 billion mass rapid transit system we were the independent quality and safety management engineer. This project comprises two metro lines providing transport services for the three million inhabitants of Kaohsiung, Taiwan’s second largest city. The 8.9-mile (14.4-kilometer) Orange Line contains 14 stations, a main depot, and an operational control center. The 17.6-mile (28.3-kilometer) Red Line has 23 stations and two line depots.

Following success on Taiwan’s Kaohsiung Metro, we've been providing technical services for the city’s new light rapid transit system, including a feasibility study and planning report for three lines: Yellow, Brown, and Harbour.

For the Taichung Mass Rapid Transit system we acted as general consultant for specification, tender review, tender award and design review for all electrical and mechanical railway systems.

At Yuan Lin station we've provided construction supervision for a 2.5-mile (4-kilometer) viaduct and elevated station. The overpass will help replace three railway crossings, five underground passages, and one pedestrian skywalk along the route. The scope of work covers civil and architecture, building services, communication, radio, SDH, and track work.


Key water projects include Tamsui Waste Water II. We also provided supervision and management services on the mega build-operate-transfer Tamsui district sewage system.


Road projects have been gaining pace with reconstruction of typhoon-damaged bridges. We provided construction supervision for seven bridges on Highway 20. The scope of our services included document review, quality control, and safety management. The bridges shorten journey times and improve traffic safety in the mountainous area of Tao Yuan District in Kaohsiung City.


Our building experience in Taiwan continues to grow, drawing on our global experience. We were appointed as procurement and construction management consultant for the prehistoric museum in Southern Taiwan Science-Based Industrial Park.
