Atlas Technical Consultants, Inc.

The joint venture, led by AECOM, includes Atlas, other partners and 26 small businesses, disadvantaged business enterprises, and disabled veteran business enterprise firms.

The California High-Speed Rail project is the first of its kind in the United States. It will transform how people commute and travel, spur economic growth, and promote a cleaner environment by connecting NorCal to SoCal via reliable rail. There are currently 119 miles of rail line under construction and 52 miles under advanced design in the Central Valley with service expected to begin by the end of the decade. Through disciplined environmental initiatives that outline land preservation measures, recycling programs, and renewable energy investment, the project will ensure the protection of natural resources at every step; per year, California High-Speed Rail operations are projected to generate greenhouse gas emissions savings of roughly two million metric tons in carbon dioxide equivalent.
