FAIRFAX, Va. (January 26, 2017) — ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), a consulting and technology services provider to government and commercial clients around the world, was recently awarded six new task orders to provide environment impact review and analyses, documentation and other technical services to help a California rail program meet environmental requirements for its new statewide passenger rail system. The combined value of the task orders is $11.1 million, and each has a term of 12 months.
“The rail project is critical to addressing the transportation needs of California’s growing population, which is estimated to reach 50 million by 2050,” said Mike Davis, senior vice president for ICF. “For 15 years, ICF has played a significant role in helping our client identify and disclose the potential environmental effects of various segments of the rail project and craft environmental mitigation measures to enable its engineers to design systems and move to construction with minimal environmental impact.”
To support this work, ICF has assembled an impressive team of professionals who work at the nexus of transportation and the environment: state and federal regulatory experts, archaeologists, architectural and cultural historians, wildlife biologists, wetlands and air quality scientists, acoustical engineers, planners, landscape architects, water resources modelers, economists and GIS experts.
ICF’s environmental policy and transportation experts are immersed in the industry and understand the need for timely, creative and legally sufficient environmental review as part of passenger rail development. ICF’s experience with this complex aspect of rail projects offers clients a customized, creative approach to environmental review to ensure compliance with national, state and local requirements and effective stewardship of natural and human environments.
