With Shimmick's strong execution track record and AECOM's leading project management and design market presence, AECOM will be better positioned to capture a greater share of the market spend, especially as clients increasingly procure services on an integrated basis. Approximately half of all large non-residential projects in the U.S. are now executed through design-build delivery, and AECOM has a nearly $40-billion pipeline of alternative delivery pursuits across the U.S., including $6 billion in California alone."No organization is better positioned to plan and deliver the next generation of American infrastructure than AECOM, with the addition of Shimmick further bolstering our design-build capabilities," said Daniel P. McQuade, AECOM group president, Construction Services. "Drawing on our successful history of integrating leaders in the construction industry, we are excited to welcome the talented Shimmick team and leverage our combined expertise to meet the needs of our clients and the cities they serve." "This is a compelling combination that significantly enhances our value proposition with key clients, and provides new growth opportunities for our employees," said Paul Cocotis, Shimmick's chairman and chief executive officer. "AECOM is an ideal partner, with world-class expertise and leadership, strong financial discipline and a proven ability to integrate construction services into more complex projects in more geographies."
