The global engineering giant has been selected to manage and supervise site investigation works for Liverpool’s proposed £50m permanent cruise liner terminal.
The appointment follows the announcement in May that Ramboll is to lead the project’s technical team, a line-up that also includes architect Stride Treglown, cost consultant Gardiner & Theobald, landscape architect Hyland Edgar Driver and JLL as planning consultant.
AECOM’s brief includes a preliminary desk study, overseeing and implementing a complex river and land based geotechnical and environmental site investigation and carrying out geophysical surveys followed by a jack-up drilling rig.
Doug Lewis, associate director and ground engineering lead for AECOM, said: “We are delighted to be working closely with Liverpool City Council on this important project which will help encourage more investment and visitors to this iconic city.
“This project has already opened up other opportunities for us along the River Mersey and we look forward to working with the council and its other stakeholders.”
