NEW YORK (TheStreet) --One stock telling the story of the post-election Donald Trump rally is Aecom. (ACM) - Get AECOM ReportSince Wednesday of last week, shares of the multi-national engineering firm are higher 32.8%, carrying the momentum of a possible massive infrastructure spend under the Trump administration.

The Los Angeles-based engineering firm has played a role in the developments of NYC's One World Trade Center, the Los Angeles Rams' new football stadium, and the Los Angeles airport.

"We think we are at a unique moment here for a number of reasons," CEO Michael Burke said on CNBC's "Power Lunch" today. "We have seen benefit across the entire sector due to the so-called 'Trump Effect' with a renewed excitement about infrastructure."

However positive campaign rhetoric is not all that's powering the company forward. Aecom is continuing to build and grow based on its fundamentals.

"Last quarter we had the highest number of project wins ever in the history of the company. We had $6.3 billion of new project wins in the quarter," Burke noted. "We followed it up with the first five weeks of this quarter where we had another $3.4 billion of wins."

The company will carry that momentum forward and is "ready" for the funds that will be pumped into the infrastructure market place, Burke said.
