Plans for Saadiyat Island in the United Arab Emirates include residential,
retail, commercial, hospitality, entertainment, cultural, recreational, and public
facilities as well as landscaped open space. Parsons is providing design and
construction supervision services for roads, bridges, and infrastructure. The
Phase 1 Saadiyat Expressway is complete and operational, and the Phase 2
Cultural District design is complete.
Parsons used MicroStation, MXROAD, and GEOPAK to design the project, and
Project Wise to coordinate work with many consultants and contractors. The
software aided Parsons in the role of project supervisor and facilitated the
collaboration among various design disciplines and construction teams. This
helped to ensure delivery an executable design for storm, sewer, electrical,
telephone, gas, potable water, and irrigation.
Public Works Roads Department, Assam
Assam State Roads Project
The Assam State Roads Project in Assam, India, includes the widening and
improvement of 800 kilometers of state highways, for which 300 kilometers
require detailed engineering designs to improve alignments, widen to double lanes,
strengthen or reconstruct pavement, construct drains, convert wooden bridges
to roller compacted concrete, and adopt slope protection and erosion control.
The Public Works Roads Department prepared detailed engineering designs
using MXROAD, which produced quality designs and aided in planning
alignments around such constraints as seasonal flood zones, protected
forest areas, and archaeological sites. The improved road conditions will
reduce vehicle operating costs and improve access to health, education, and
