The consortium comprises Aldea Services, Altus Group, Mott MacDonald, SNC-Lavalin and Turner & Townsend. 

The Delivery Partner contract covers commercial management, technical support, project control and construction management services.

‘We have extensive global experience acting as the delivery partner to various levels of governments on complex transportation projects’, said SNC-Lavalin President & CEO Ian L Edwards on January 26. ’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.’

Main works for the Green Line will be undertaken under a design and build contract for which the Bow Transit Connectors and City Link Partners consortia were shortlisted last year.
