AECOM is a global brand that works in the HS2 East region on planning, design and construction in the transportation sector.
Dr Matthew Raybould is Managing Director of AECOM’s Power and Energy Business in EMEA and India. He sees HS2 Phase 2 as a huge opportunity for the city and for AECOM. The company is very much looking forward to supporting it in any way it can be that on on planning, design or construction. AECOM is a global business and many of its 300 regional employees regularly travel between the UK’s major cities to meet clients and deliver projects.
HS2 reducing journey times to Leeds, Birmingham and London will ultimately provide more employment opportunities. AECOM’s teams are highly educated, professional staff who choose to be based in this region, as well as being part of the global business. HS2 would enable them to attract a greater proportion of their resources to be based here.
