"The commitments of the federal, provincial and local governments to unprecedented infrastructure development in Toronto make this an ideal time to open an office for the joint operations of Balfour Beatty Capital and Parsons Brinckerhoff," said George J. Pierson, president and CEO of Parsons Brinckerhoff.
"Our companies offer a comprehensive range of services for the development of infrastructure for Toronto, Ontario and Canada," added Bruce Robinson, president and CEO of Balfour Beatty Capital Group. "We are excited about the opportunity to expand our reach throughout North America and share the vast resources we have to offer with the well established Canadian PPP market," Robinson said.
Parsons Brinckerhoff recently won five contracts in connection with the expansion of the light rail and subway systems in Toronto. Three of the five contracts are for the Toronto Transit Commission's Transit City, a program for seven new light rail lines. Two contracts are for work on the Toronto-York Spadina subway extension. Parsons Brinckerhoff has also performed capital planning work on behalf of Metrolinx to support the agency's regional transportation program.
