Transportation

Golder's ground engineering and environmental specialists provide design, engineering and construction services to many of the world's most challenging transportation infrastructure projects -- from urban metro systems in many of the world's major cities to high speed railways linking countries and regions as well long range heavy and freight rail lines.


We've helped develop roads in South America and Europe, ports in Africa, road tunnels in Australia, airports in the Caribbean, bridges in Canada, canals in Asia, and transit systems and railways in the U.S. We work directly for transportation agencies and governments, and in partnership with other consulting, engineering and design/build firms.

The principles and practice of safety and sustainability permeate everything Golder undertakes, helping to ensure successful outcomes for both our clients and the communities we serve. As a result, our transportation infrastructure work consistently earns industry recognition, including the Top 100 Platinum Elite Infrastructure in Canada and “Highly Rated” Ceequal projects in the UK.
