#21 Parsons Corp
Parsons Corporation is an engineering, construction, technical, and management services firm with revenues of $3.2bn in 2015. The company has been working in the Middle East Africa region for more than 60 years and has offices in the UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Bahrain.
The consultancy’s portfolio of ongoing work in the region includes major oil and gas projects as well as highways, bridges, rail and transit, airports, ports, water infrastructure, plus hospitals, public schools, universities, mosques, and other public buildings.
Parsons provided project management services for Stage 1 of Etihad Rail, a landmark project carried out in partnership with AECOM. Last October the company was contracted to design a new bridge spanning Dubai Creek and to evaluate the Shindagha Tunnel running underneath the waterway. The contract includes the concept study, preliminary and final design, tender documentation and construction supervision of the new bridge connecting Bur Dubai with Deira.
Parsons is also providing infrastructure design and construction-supervision services for the 438-hectare Dubai Expo 2020 site. And most recently Dubai Municipality awarded Parsons a contract to build a Deep Tunnel Sewerage System at a total cost of AED 12bn ($3.26bn). Following its completion in late 2020, the project will remove the need for more than 121 sewage pumping stations spread across the city, saving large amounts of energy.
