The city of Calgary has appointed SNC-Lavalin, a Canadian engineering, procurement, and construction services firm with a global presence, as delivery partner for its Green Line LRT.

The role will support the city in delivering project functions such as commercial management, technical support, project controls, and construction management. SNC-Lavalin has expertise delivering rail projects in Canadian cities such as Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa.

It will use this experience to support the delivery of Phase 1 of the Calgary Green Line LRT Project, an 11.2-mi (18-km) transit system connecting the existing Red and Blue LRT lines, and four MAX BRT routes.

“It is a privilege for us to have been chosen by the city of Calgary to support them in the delivery of this project,” says Ian L. Edwards, president and CEO of SNC-Lavalin. “We have extensive global experience acting as the delivery partner to various levels of governments on complex transportation projects. This project is also a continuation of a long tradition of excellence in the rail industry, where we have deep expertise in the design, build, operation, and maintenance of the integrated systems that are required to deliver smarter cities and better transportation, supporting our commitment to developing well-engineered and prosperous communities that perfectly align with our purpose.”
