Atlas Technical Consultants, Inc. announced that it is a member of the joint venture team that was selected to provide program delivery support for the California High-Speed Rail project.

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

The $400 million contract awarded by the California High-Speed Rail Authority has a term of four years, with two, one-year extension options. Atlas will book approximately $65 million in the fourth quarter of 2022 backlog with work expected to begin immediately.

“We are extremely proud to be part of the AECOM-led joint venture and look forward to implementing a best-in-class quality management system for the California High-Speed Rail project, which will help California lead the nation in building world-class infrastructure and combat climate change,” said L. Joe Boyer, Atlas’ CEO. “This win highlights the success we have had in expanding our technical capabilities and scale through acquisitions, enabling us to partner with our clients and communities nationally to transform the way mega-infrastructure projects are delivered.”

As part of the joint venture team, Atlas said it will develop and implement a quality management system that assures plans, processes, and actions of this transportation program are executed in a mutually beneficial manner while ensuring compliance with internal and external requirements.

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. California High-Speed Rail operations are projected to generate greenhouse gas emissions savings of roughly two million metric tons in carbon dioxide equivalent.
