Dutch infrastructure firm Arcadis has won an $11m contract to provide engineering consulting services for the design of the stations of Line 3 of the Santiago Metro in Chile, which will be operational in 2018.

A joint venture (JV) of Arcadis and WorleyParsons will provide the services for the project. It will also be involved in all stages of Line 3.

A team of 40 people will work for Arcadis on the project that will intersect with almost all current metro lines. Santiago Metro is seeking a design that addresses the interaction with existing lines through tunnels and stations.

"Arcadis thrives on challenging projects like these where we can showcase our engineering expertise."

The project is part of the Urban Transport Investment Plan in Santiago that involves expansion of the Metro’s 100km network to 140km.

Under the contract, Arcadis will perform detailed engineering of all the stations for Line 3, a 22km line with 18 new stations, and generating all the plans and tender documents. Furthermore, Arcadis will also deliver architecture, structures, tunnels, electrical and mechanical engineering.

The contract will have a timeline of 18 months for design and three years for construction supervision.

Arcadis Chile CEO Hernan Bezamat said: "Arcadis is proud to work with Metro to develop innovative solutions for meeting the demands of the growing and increasingly mobile communities it serves

"Adding to the complexity of the project is the need to tunnel under one of the most densely populated cities in the country.

"Arcadis thrives on challenging projects like these where we can showcase our engineering expertise while balancing the needs of growing communities with minimal impacts to the environment."
